Example code for getting started with z3c.form forms

I have been working on an example package to show how to get started with z3c.form-based forms in Plone, and this helps me prepare myself for the tutorial session I will lead at the Plone conference.

I just updated the code, to end my day at the Paris Bobun Sprint, by adding a technique you can use – based on a feature of the framework – when you want to provide your own specific error message on a field’s validation (a common need, when you are improving a form’s usability for the users). I will explain this feature in detail in a next post.

My tentative TODO list for the next days/weeks is:

  • Write tests
  • An example of custom widget
  • An example of data converter (maybe)
  • An example of using AjaX (jQuery, KSS) to improve the forms’s usability

You can check the code in the collective (https://svn.plone.org/svn/collective/example.z3cform/trunk/) and send me feedback, suggestions, or questions.

Enjoy !
