Displaying a field/widget value of an EasyForm (plugin.registration) out of its template?


thank you for being understanding (I am not a developer) ... but I would like to display the number of "available_seats" of an easyform (plugin.registration) at the level of its parent folder but I can't do it this way :

           <dl class="portlet">
               <span tal:define="presentiel nocall:context/reservations|nothing;
                                 max_attendees python:getattr(presentiel, 'max_attendees', None);
                                 show_seats_left presentiel/show_seats_left|nothing;
                                 available_seats presentiel/view/form/field/available_seats|nothing">
                  <span tal:content="show_seats_left" /> : 
                  <span tal:content="available_seats" /> /
                  <span tal:content="max_attendees" />

(inspired by how this data is retrieved elsewhere: https://github.com/collective/collective.easyformplugin.registration/blob/master/src/collective/easyformplugin/registration/browser/registration_form.pt) ...

What else can I try? @jensens ?



what is "presentiel"? An object? A View?

It I understand the code right you want to show the result of a function from your parent object, because "available_seats" is a function.

I guess my try would be to write a function myself for the template I want to fill with an equivalent function like this:

I guess you would have to rewrite it to use the parent instead of context though.

Kind regards

traverse to the view like so:

regview nocall:context/reservations/@@view;
available_seats regview/available_seats;

Hi Janina,

"presentiel" here designates the object "reservations" which is the id of an EasyForm added in an EventFolderishObject

Thanks for the advice, then I'll do my best to make it happen if I can't find another easier way given my skills ...

Hi @jensens

Super nice to have posted so fast, but inserting this following code in a 'myview' template ... a LocationError occurs :cry:

<metal:block fill-slot="content-core">
        XXX - this text comes below title and description

               <!-- THIS WORKS IF NECESSARY
                 ${python: 'Il y a {0} places en tout'.format(getattr(context.reservations, 'max_attendees', None))}

               <!-- THIS NOT : LocationError -->
               <span tal:define="regview nocall:context/reservations/@@view;
                                 available_seats regview/available_seats;">
                  <span tal:content="available_seats" /> /

               <!-- THIS DOESN'T WORK NEITHER
                 ${python: 'Il y a {0} places disponibles'.format(reservations.unrestrictedTraverse('@@view').available_seats())}

All theory is gray....
Probably the wrong view was fetched with @@view. Without more context difficult to debug via this forum.

thank you anyway for looking into my problem, so i will focus on python. I still have to find the way to code this ... and call the result from the template



just to let you know that I found a solution to retrieve the data stored in this context (the available_seats being more difficult to retrieve in python than the other attributes), thanks to the contribution shared and the track proposed by @tkimnguyen at https://community.plone.org/t/does-anyone-have-any-suggestions-of-bringing-saveddata-count-to-another-part-of-a-plone-site-using-collective-easyform / 7066/4
