TextArea value-setting inconsistent with other widgets

Reported by: andy@… Owned by: anonymous

using 0.9a4.

class Form(w.WidgetsList?):

desc = w.TextArea?(label="Description", default="wrongtext")

in controller:

form.get_field_by_name("desc").attrsvalue? = "correct text"

result: <textarea value="correct text">wrongtext</textarea>

If there's a better way to do what I'm trying to do, please also point this out? :) Thanks -- Andy

As you can see:


A textarea tag doesn't support a "value" attribute, that's what you are trying to set by using attrs.

Second point, you shouldn't modify attributes of a widget in this way since this is not thread-safe.

You don't need get_field_by_name (me wants private methods, I will probably rename it to _get_field_by_name).

What you need is passing at display time the value you want to give to your TextArea? widget:

def add(self, ...)
    value = dict(desc="correct text")
    return dict(form=form, value=value)

in your template
