#6648 new enhancement

Hide fields instead of dropping them

Reported by: pbecker@… Owned by: Ryan J Ollos

Cc: falkb Trac Release: 0.11


We are using trac 0.11 as a feedback system for one of our websites, using links to the newticket URL with parameters to preset fields such as the component (along the lines of "http://my.trac/newticket?component=SomeComponent"). It would be nice if the form would include this preset value, but hide it from the user (i.e. use a hidden form field). This way we could people enter tickets attached to the right component without them being able to change it.

Summary: Use hidden fields instead of dropping themHide fields instead of dropping them

The BlackMagicTicketTweaksPlugin hides ticket fields by modifying the Genshi template stream (filter_stream in ITemplateStreamFilter). We might be able to do something similar here. I'd consider a patch for inclusion.

After reading this I wonder if SimpleTicketPlugin actually "hides" or "drops" when doing data['fields'] = [f for f in data['fields'] if f['name'] not in self.fields] (?). And if I'm right and it's "dropping", which other way would "hiding" go?

I'm quite interested in such stuff at least because of trac:#10320 but know nearly nothing about the internal architecture yet...
