About Turbo Django Forms

Turbo Django Forms is a basic package that allows you to use Django forms in turbogears. You should be able to follow the django documentation to deal with validation etc.


tgext.djangoforms can be installed from pypi::

pip install tgext.djangoforms

should just work for most of the users

Enabling Turbo Django Forms

In your application lib/ import TDForms::

from tgext.djangoforms import TDForms

And call it inside the init::

class Globals(object):
    def __init__(self):
        self.tdf = TDForms()

Creating Forms

Creating forms works the same as with standard Django::

from django import forms

class ContactForm(forms.Form):
    subject = forms.CharField(max_length=100)
    message = forms.CharField()
    sender = forms.EmailField()
    cc_myself = forms.BooleanField(required=False)


You can follow most of the django forms tutorial::

def index(self, **kw):
    """Handle the front-page."""
    if kw:
        form = ContactForm(kw)

        if form.is_valid():
            print form.cleaned_data
            //do stuff
            tg.flash("Form OK")
        form = ContactForm()

    return dict(page='Index', form=form)

Rendering Forms

You can use the standard django style template notation in your Genshi template - but add a g.tdf(...)::
