I would need more clarification ... I've been able to create and
traverse multiple containers, how does grok know where to attach
variables to containers ?
def Sample(grok.Application, grok.Container):
self['contacts'] = ContactsContainter()
"""Data schema for contacts"""
surname = schema.TextLine(title=u'Surname',description=u'Contact
name = schema.TextLine(title=u'Name', description=u'Contact\'s
notes = schema.Text(title=u'Notes', description=u'Notes about this
def __init__(self, surname, name, notes):
self.surname = surname
self.name = name
self.notes = notes
form_fields = grok.AutoFields(IContact)
def add(self, **data)
in AddContact should the context be Sample ? Is it possible to get
access to Sample from the AddContact class as to have access to
functions and variables set in it ?
