Editable primary key

Worked on #121 : In the detail window opened from reception.Clients (only from there), the client’s id field is editable although it is the primary key.

This was because Client is an MTI child and thus has more than one primary key fields. I verified this using the following temporary test session (i.e. I ran python -m doctest docs/blog/2015/0306.rst repeatedly to get this running when writing this blog entry, but it is not part of the test suite):

>>> import os
>>> os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = \
...    'lino_welfare.projects.eupen.settings.doctests'
>>> from lino.api.doctest import *
>>> reception.Clients.get_pk_field()
<django.db.models.fields.related.OneToOneField: person_ptr>
>>> for (fld, model) in pcsw.Client._meta.get_fields_with_model():
...     if fld.primary_key:
...         print, fld
id <django.db.models.fields.AutoField: id>
partner_ptr <django.db.models.fields.related.OneToOneField: partner_ptr>
person_ptr <django.db.models.fields.related.OneToOneField: person_ptr>

Another observation is that the problem occurs only when I don’t have the usual * in column_names. Adding this was indeed a quick and acceptable workaround.

But that was just a coincidence. Here we see that before our change only person_ptr and partner_ptr were disabled, id was missing:

>>> d['disabled_fields']  
{u'person_ptr_id': True, u'partner_ptr': True, 'modified': True, 'AgentsByClient': True, 'created': True}

The serious solution was to add all primary keys to the disabled_fields. Or, even better: to add those which are being used in some layout. We don’t need to disable person_ptr or partner_ptr if there is no widget in any of the layouts managed by this store.

>>> u = rt.login("robin").get_user()
>>> ar = reception.Clients.request(user=u)
>>> store = reception.Clients.get_handle().store
>>> obj = pcsw.Client.objects.get(id=257)
>>> d = store.row2dict(ar, obj)

The new implementation is that Store has an attribute primary_keys with a set of all primary keys which are used in some layout.

>>> d['disabled_fields']
{u'id': True, 'modified': True, 'AgentsByClient': True, 'created': True}
