TurboGears – DataGrid


Advertisements


The ToscaWidgets contains a DataGrid control which provides a quick way to present data in tabular form. The DataGrid object is declared as follows −

from tw2.forms import DataGrid
student_grid = DataGrid(fields = [('Name', 'name'),('City', 'city'),
   ('Address','address'), ('PINCODE', 'pincode')])

Now, showgrid() function retrieves all the records in student table and exposes the data to grid.html template. First the code for showgrid() function and then grid.html code is given below −

showgrid()

@expose('hello.templates.grid')
def showgrid(self):
   data = DBSession.query(student).all()
   return dict(page = 'grid', grid = student_grid, data = data)

grid.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns = "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
   xmlns:py = "http://genshi.edgewall.org/"
   lang = "en">
   
   <head>
      <title>Student Registration Form</title>
   </head>
   
   <body>
      <div id = "getting_started">
         <div>${grid.display(value = data)}</div>
      </div>
   </body>

</html>

The following tabular data will be displayed when http://localhost:8080/showlist URL is entered in the browser −
