[patch] checkbox widget requires validator

Reported by: stephen@… Owned by: anonymous
Priority: high Milestone: 0.9
Component: TG Widgets Version:
Severity: major Keywords:


When using the fastdata package with my model, I found that this:

@fastdata.formmaker.column_widget.when("isinstance(column, col.SOBoolCol)")
def column_boolean(column):
    return widgets.CheckBox(column.name)

presented a problem, because when a checkbox is not checked, the key/value doesn't come back as 'columname'/None, it doesn't come back at all.

The fix is trivial, the CheckBox? widget requires a formencode.validators.Bool() validator, and an absent value will be taken as false.

Checkboxes can actually have a value other than true/false. But, it seems like a reasonable default to have a checkbox return a boolean. I've also added the rule for boolean columns to formmaker.
