Added doc about SortMilestoneVersion and TicketNavigation

Some miscellaneous functions to ticket view (CKEditor, navigation table, descriptions, sorting versions, etc.)


Component TextAreaDescription

Shows next to a text area (like description itself or any custom description) an description for what the field is for.

Default values for options:

description_descr = 
descr_template = <div style="white-space: normal; height: 250px; overflow:scroll;" class="system-message">%s<div>

Component HtmlContent

Enables HTML content in description, adding Javascript editor and adding additional CSS file for manipulation CSS declarations.


option name values description
description_format wiki | html format for ticket description (default: wiki)
editor_source valid path Usually it should stored in project or common js folder. For ckeditor for example it could be site/js/ckeditor/ckeditor.js.
editor_replace valid path Javascript, which should replace textareas.
additional_css valid path Path to additional css file, which overrides css-declarations.

Sample configuration:

description_format = html
editor_source = site/js/ckeditor/ckeditor.js
editor_replace = <script type="text/javascript">CKEDITOR.replace('@FIELD_NAME@', {toolbar: 'custom'});</script>
additional_css = site/css/add_ticket.css

In above sample configuration CKEditor is used as online editor and the editor source is located in projects-folder htdocs/js/ckeditor, after each textarea with HTML-Option content of editor_replace will be added. The file in option additional_css will be added and therefore will override these declarations.

Attention: To have a correct preview, file ticket_box.html has to be edited:

1 <py:if test="field">
2   <py:choose test="">
3     <py:when test="ticket[] and field.format == 'html'">${wiki_to_html(context, '{{{ \n#!html \n' + ticket[]  + '\n}}}', escape_newlines=preserve_newlines)}</py:when>
4     <py:when test="'rendered' in field">${field.rendered}</py:when>
5     <py:otherwise>${ticket[]}</py:otherwise>
6   </py:choose>
7 </py:if>

Line 3 has to be inserted into py:choose block in above template-snippet.

<div py:if="ticket.description" class="searchable" xml:space="preserve">
    <py:when test="description_format == 'html'">${wiki_to_html(context, '{{{ \n#!html \n' + ticket.description  + '\n}}}', escape_newlines=preserve_newlines)}</py:when>
    <py:otherwise>${wiki_to_html(context, ticket.description, escape_newlines=preserve_newlines)}</py:otherwise>

Also py:choose block has to be added into div-block near the end of file (see above template-snippet).
