TypeError in formencode.Schema._to_python when trying to render a twForm

Component: ToscaWidgets Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


Trying to follow the Pylons/twForms tutorial ( http://wiki.pylonshq.com/display/toscawidgets/Using+twForms+with+Pylons.+Part+1)

I get the following traceback when trying to render the form:

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/local/src/FormEncode/formencode/schema.py", line 164, in _to_python    except KeyError:
TypeError: unbound method message() must be called with DefaultValidator instance as first argument (got str instance instead)

using FormEncode 0.7.2dev-r3105, ToscaWidgets? 0.1a2dev-r3614 and twForms 0.1a2dev-r3616.

The problem seems to come from the form's schema validators all being the DefaultValidator class itself, on which Schema._to_python calls the instance method message(). The relevant part of code is in formencode.schema, lines 152 to 173. I first thought there was a typo with InputWidget using the DefaultValidator class (instead of an instance of...), but it looks like it's by design since there are a couple of places where InputWidget.validator is identity tested against DefaultValidator, so...

NB : of course, the form renders ok when validators are explicitely added to the fields.

This seems like a FE bug (or a bug in the way twForms interacts with FE). I can reproduce with FormEncode 0.7.2dev-r3105 but not with 0.7.1. I'll try to investigate this a soon as I have a chance, though I wouldn't mind someone doing it before I do. :)

Thanks for the report!


BTW: FE validator classes can be used as instances thanks to some dark magic inside formencode.declarative so yes, it's by design :)

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

Its definitively a FE bug (unless the API has changed, of course), attached is a unittest that proves it. I'm forwarding it to the FE list
