Add Save and Goto Step to Form Wizard

Reported by: creecode Owned by: steph
Component: contrib.formtools Version: 1.4
Severity: Normal Keywords: form wizard save goto step

Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


I've been working with the new form wizard in 1.4 and I discovered that apparently the goto form step feature was designed to not store data from the current step before going to the step specified.

This seems like a situation that will easily lead to confusion and frustration. I suggest that in addition to the current cancel and goto step feature a save and goto step feature is needed.

I created a patch that changes the behavior of wizard_goto_step into a save and goto, which seems safer to me, and then adds a wizard_cancel_step_goto.

Please feel free to tinker with the code. I'm happy as long a I get a little more control over how data is handled when going to another step.

Needs a decision on whether it's useful. A +1 from me, for what it's worth ;)

I just wrote a bunch of code to make it possible to store the form data before changing the step. I don't think we should change the default behaviour because users except that the data is not saved. With this change any developer can overwrite the render_goto_step method to change the default behaviour. Please see this commit:
