Subject: Trying to query against pre-populated form
I have this dilemna and I am hoping someone could give me an idea on how
to do this.
I have a form called view_users_html that displays all users in the
users table and each record of users contains an edit link.
userid name email state
1 jane jane at blah.com texas 
2 jim jim at blah.com california 
3 jill jill at blah.com florida 
Right now the edit link directs to a user_EditForm passing the userid in
the url: <td><span><a tal:attributes="href python:
'user_EditForm?userid=' + str(userid)"></a></span></td>
I can prepopulate the userid field but I don't know how to retrieve the
other user information and prepopulate the fields and also incorporate
the sql method that will update the user information.
So for example if I have the following pre-populated fields in the user
edit form, I want to be able to give jane a new name and hit a submit
button that will update the database.
email: jane at blah.com
Any ideas will be much appreciated.
