[docs]class FormHelper(DynamicLayoutHandler): """ This class controls the form rendering behavior of the form passed to the `{% crispy %}` tag. For doing so you will need to set its attributes and pass the corresponding helper object to the tag:: {% crispy form form.helper %} Let's see what attributes you can set and what form behaviors they apply to: **form_method**: Specifies form method attribute. You can see it to 'POST' or 'GET'. Defaults to 'POST' **form_action**: Applied to the form action attribute: - Can be a named url in your URLconf that can be executed via the `{% url %}` template tag. \ Example: 'show_my_profile'. In your URLconf you could have something like:: url(r'^show/profile/$', 'show_my_profile_view', name = 'show_my_profile') - It can simply point to a URL '/whatever/blabla/'. **form_id**: Generates a form id for dom identification. If no id provided then no id attribute is created on the form. **form_class**: String containing separated CSS clases to be applied to form class attribute. The form will always have by default 'uniForm' class. **form_tag**: It specifies if <form></form> tags should be rendered when using a Layout. If set to False it renders the form without the <form></form> tags. Defaults to True. **form_error_title**: If a form has `non_field_errors` to display, they are rendered in a div. You can set title's div with this attribute. Example: "Oooops!" or "Form Errors" **formset_error_title**: If a formset has `non_form_errors` to display, they are rendered in a div. You can set title's div with this attribute. **form_style**: Uni-form has two built in different form styles. You can choose your favorite. This can be set to "default" or "inline". Defaults to "default". Public Methods: **add_input(input)**: You can add input buttons using this method. Inputs added using this method will be rendered at the end of the form/formset. **add_layout(layout)**: You can add a `Layout` object to `FormHelper`. The Layout specifies in a simple, clean and DRY way how the form fields should be rendered. You can wrap fields, order them, customize pretty much anything in the form. Best way to add a helper to a form is adding a property named helper to the form that returns customized `FormHelper` object:: from crispy_forms.helper import FormHelper from crispy_forms.layout import Submit class MyForm(forms.Form): title = forms.CharField(_("Title")) @property def helper(self): helper = FormHelper() helper.form_id = 'this-form-rocks' helper.form_class = 'search' helper.add_input(Submit('save', 'save')) [...] return helper You can use it in a template doing:: {% load crispy_forms_tags %} {% crispy form %} """ _form_method = 'post' _form_action = '' _form_style = 'default' form = None form_id = '' form_class = '' layout = None form_tag = True form_error_title = None formset_error_title = None form_show_errors = True render_unmentioned_fields = False render_hidden_fields = False render_required_fields = False _help_text_inline = False _error_text_inline = True html5_required = False form_show_labels = True template = None field_template = None disable_csrf = False label_class = '' label_size = '' field_class = '' def __init__(self, form=None): self.attrs = {} self.inputs = [] if form is not None: self.form = form self.layout = self.build_default_layout(form) def build_default_layout(self, form): return Layout(*form.fields.keys()) def get_form_method(self): return self._form_method def set_form_method(self, method): if method.lower() not in ('get', 'post'): raise FormHelpersException('Only GET and POST are valid in the \ form_method helper attribute') self._form_method = method.lower() # we set properties the old way because we want to support pre-2.6 python form_method = property(get_form_method, set_form_method) def get_form_action(self): try: return reverse(self._form_action) except NoReverseMatch: return self._form_action def set_form_action(self, action): self._form_action = action # we set properties the old way because we want to support pre-2.6 python form_action = property(get_form_action, set_form_action) def get_form_style(self): if self._form_style == "default": return '' if self._form_style == "inline": return 'inlineLabels' def set_form_style(self, style): if style.lower() not in ('default', 'inline'): raise FormHelpersException('Only default and inline are valid in the \ form_style helper attribute') self._form_style = style.lower() form_style = property(get_form_style, set_form_style) def get_help_text_inline(self): return self._help_text_inline def set_help_text_inline(self, flag): self._help_text_inline = flag self._error_text_inline = not flag help_text_inline = property(get_help_text_inline, set_help_text_inline) def get_error_text_inline(self): return self._error_text_inline def set_error_text_inline(self, flag): self._error_text_inline = flag self._help_text_inline = not flag error_text_inline = property(get_error_text_inline, set_error_text_inline) def add_input(self, input_object): self.inputs.append(input_object) def add_layout(self, layout): self.layout = layout
