Turbogears fails to raise a validators.Invalid exception.

Reported by: skrikstone@… Owned by: anonymous
Priority: high Milestone: 0.8a6
Component: TurboGears Version: 0.8
Severity: critical Keywords:


Traceback when no validation_error method is defined and a validator is used:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/CherryPy-2.1.0_rc2-py2.4.egg/cherrypy/_cphttptools.py", line 271, in run
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/CherryPy-2.1.0_rc2-py2.4.egg/cherrypy/_cphttptools.py", line 502, in main
    body = page_handler(*args, **cherrypy.request.paramMap)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/TurboGears-0.8a3-py2.4.egg/turbogears/controllers.py", line 119, in newfunc
    raise turbogearsvalid.Invalid(str(errors))
TypeError: __init__() takes at least 4 arguments (2 given)

The problem is that the formencode.validators.Invalid API has changed. Also, IMHO, the error passed to the custom validation_error method is missing useful information.

To fix, apply simple 2 line patch to controllers.py

I tried applying this patch, but there is now a failing test: ====================================================================== ERROR: Data can be converted and validated with formencode.Schema instance

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/Users/tazzzzz/projects/turbogears/turbogears/tests/test_controllers.py", line 171, in test_validationwithschema

assert "missing" in cherrypy.root.errorslastname?.msg.lower()

AttributeError?: 'str' object has no attribute 'msg'

I don't have more time to look at this right now.

I just undid the first of the two lines that were changed and all was well. This is checked in now.

  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Milestone changed from 0.9 to 0.8

Reopened with milestone set to 0.8 as this problem, along with ticket #190, completely break validators in the current download of TurboGears 0.8a5 + FormEncode 0.4.

I realise everyone is hard at work on 0.9, but major breakages in 0.8a5 are not going to inspire confidence in the userbase :-)
