Can't use TracFormEnvironment

Reported by: ddley@… Owned by: Rich Harkins
Priority: normal Component: TracFormsPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: rich@… Trac Release: 0.11



I like TracForms but I can't use TracForm Environment Variable. When I use [tf.who:value] after this I got anonymous in the form. I'm logged in Trac.

Now I wanna use %USER% but I haven't any idea how to use this. I tried a lot.

Please gimme an example.

First off, which version of TracForms are you using? Did you build from trunk and if so when? If it wasn't in the last couple of days you might try rebuilding with that as some of the 0.1 stuff had problems with not being able to identify users correctly. Trunk is now at 0.2.

You might also check out the tutorial.

Now I changed from 0.1 to 0.2 and it works.


I checked for two days ago the tutorial also. It's a very good tutorial. I've never seen a good description like for tracforms for any plugin before. Good structure and nice compendium.

But I can't use variables cause I'm not the pick of the bunch. Please enhance your laundry example with a variable example.

Glad to hear it's working better, other than for USER. Not sure why that is off hand. One of the other tasks is to set up the polling example, which is really what %USER% is meant for (so that one can sub-contextualize based on it). I'm not sure when I'll have that up (might not be until next week), but here's what's _supposed_ to happen...

#! page votes:/media
#! subcontext %USER%

|| [tf:select radio 3//Lots 2//Some 1//Little] || Do you like radio? ||
|| [tf:select tv 3//Lots 2//Some 1//Little] || Do you like television? ||
|| [tf:select movies 3//Lots 2//Some 1//Little] || Do you like going to the movies? ||


Ideally, what will happen is each user logged in gets the same, blank, form with Lots, Some, Little for each question. Once submitted their vote is kept. On a different page, something like this happens:

#! load jack votes:/media
#! load mary votes:/media
#! load jill votes:/media

|| '''Score''' || '''Topic''' ||
|| [tf.sum:%/page/movie:*:radio] || Radio ||
|| [tf.sum:%/page/movie:*:tv] || Television ||
|| [tf.sum:%/page/movie:*:movies] || Movies ||


Ultimately, this would summarize the other voting pages and you could use * instead of listing every username out (which is not yet coded). Once that's done I've got a task to write up the tutorial on polling.

One note on %...% is that they were originally intended only for #!command and [tf...:] areas. They aren't parsed as part of the general text (an error on my part) and the [tf.value:] command isn't currently able to access the USER variable. That bug should be corrected soon.

Anyway, hopefully that context, albeit long winded, helps some as to what's in store. The parser definitely needs a re-factoring to bring the various insertion methods together but that won't be for a little while yet (0.3).

Thanks again for your commentary and support! Rich

Now I see the idea of variables. Looking forward for version 0.3
