UnicodeError when printing a table to pdf¶
Reported #484 and tried to reproduce on my machine.
When I try to print certain tables to pdf in a production site of Lino
Noi, e.g. “Sessions von #477” (
SessionsByTicket), then I get:
Error while evaluating the expression "table(ar)" defined in the "from" part of a statement. UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 12: ordinal not in range(128)
It is obviously related to the data being printed since the same table works for most cases.
The production server is running Django 1.6.10, Python 2.7.3, appy 0.9.1 and 0.9.2
I loaded a snapshot from the production site to my development machine (only difference I can see is Python 2.7.4 instead of 2.7.3). The same table prints out on my machine.
I upgraded the Debian Wheezy on the production server, but this did not upgrade the Python version:

It seems neither easy to upgrade the production server to 2.7.4, nor to install a Python 2.7.3 on my machine. So I leave that ticket open for the moment with the suggestion that it is due to some bug in Python 2.7.3 which has been fixed for 2.7.4 (these are listed here).
Cannot delete partner with more than one MTI children¶
When there was a Partner who was also both a Person and a Company (i.e. Person and Company are MTI siblings), then it was not possible to any object of the triangle.
This means also that application programmers should
Dynamic html actions ignore auto_save¶
Mathieu reported #491 (Dynamic html actions ignore auto_save):
Arianne a écrit quelques lignes dans le corps du texte d’une observation. Avant d’enregistrer, elle a voulu joindre un document (Fichiers téléchargés). Tout ce qu’elle a écrit a disparu.
This is a general bug: #492 (Dynamic html actions ignore auto_save). It is the same problem for all action buttons in dynamic html.
But the cleaner way is to move that do_when_clean wrapping somewhere else. Into the generated actions.
This is for later….
Maybe a cold comfort, users can now press Ctrl+S in the text editor to have it saved: #493 (Ctrl+S to save in text editor).
I didn’t get it to work with Ctrl-ENTER. Ctrl-S is defined using addShortcut which works only for alphanumeric keys. I tried using onKeyDown inspired by Steffen Bollmann which works except that I cannot stop the default handler to also fire. Tried also this method without success. And so Ctrl-ENTER is not usable since the default handler inserts a space and a newline before saving.
In general you can now also press Ctrl-S anywhere in a FormPanel to save the record. Same as ENTER until now (and that shortcut remains, too).
TODO: the keyboard focus unfortunately gets lost when saving.
