Chapter 8. Zope Schemas and Forms > Autogenerated Forms Using the forms Package

Autogenerated Forms Using the forms Package

Forms are much more Zope specific than schemas, and they can be found in the zope.app.forms package. The views of schema fields are called widgets. Widgets are responsible for data display and conversion in their specific presentation types. Currently, widgets exist mainly for HTML (that is, for web browsers).

Widgets fall into two groups: display and input widgets. Display widgets are often very simple and show only a text representation of the Python object. Input widgets are more complex, and they display a greater variety of choices. The following sections describe all the available browser-based input widgets (found in zope.app.form.browser).
