Comment on docs/tutorials/wiki20/page3.html

Reported by: dazza@… Owned by: anonymous
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Documentation Version: 0.9a6
Severity: normal Keywords:


(NOTE: this is in the preview section of the website)

For the save method I get:

TypeError?: save() got an unexpected keyword argument 'submit'

I changed the function to be:

def save(self, pagename, data, kwds):

to get it to work.

I don't think this person was looking at the wrong docs. I experienced the same thing in 0.9a6, as did the user in #956. The tutorial calls for a save method with the signature save(self, pagename, data), but you get a TypeError? when you do that:

Page handler: <bound method Root.save of <wiki20.controllers.Root object at 0xa73bdacc>>
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/cherrypy/_cphttptools.py", line 105, in _run
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/cherrypy/_cphttptools.py", line 254, in main
    body = page_handler(*virtual_path, **self.params)
  File "<string>", line 3, in save
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/turbogears/controllers.py", line 273, in expose
    output = database.run_with_transaction(
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/turbogears/database.py", line 221, in run_with_transaction
    retval = func(*args, **kw)
  File "<string>", line 5, in _expose
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/turbogears/controllers.py", line 290, in <lambda>
    mapping, fragment, *args, **kw)))
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/turbogears/controllers.py", line 314, in _execute_func
    output = errorhandling.try_call(func, *args, **kw)
  File "/var/lib/python-support/python2.4/turbogears/errorhandling.py", line 71, in try_call
    return func(self, *args, **kw)
TypeError: save() got an unexpected keyword argument 'submit'

A fourth argument is needed, even though we do nothing with it. A method signature of save(self, pagename, data, submit) allows the save function to work fine; it seems that the submit button is being added to the submission just like the other form fields, so the save method has to allow for that. I have checked the documentation referenced above in Subversion, and it's the same as what's on the site. Please see my comments on #956 and see if the tutorial needs to be udpated for that particular item, the addition of the save action to controllers.py. Thanks in advance for your time.

This is indeed a problem in the docs. it's fixed in svn now and will be updated as soon as kevin regenerate the docs.
