How do we get the value of a variable from a submitted form?
There are several solutions.
The simplest is using get_field:
from quixote import get_field def my_handler [html] (self): value = get_field('var_name_1') o o o
If you are using the Quixote 2 quixote.form package, you can reference the value of a widget in the form in the same way that you would reference a value associated with a key in a dictionary. Here is an example:
myExampleForm = form.Form(name='my_example_form', action_url='finish') myExampleForm.add(form.StringWidget, 'user_name', '', title='User name:', hint='Enter your name (last, first). ', size=40, required=False) value = myExampleForm['user_name'] o o o
