     75== Manipulators and inline editing ==
    7676
    7777Manipulators have a new optional argument to their constructors: {{{follow}}}. The argument is a dictionary indicating which fields and related objects to extract in flatten_data and examine when saving the object.
     
    8383
    8484This is the set of fields shown by the admin.
     85
     86Currently, the FormWrapper must be passed edit_inline=True to gain access to these fields.
     87This will probably be removed.
     88
     89examples of dictionarys to be used as {{{follow}}} arguments.
     90
     91Suppress the field 'name'.
     92{{{
     93follow = {
     94  'name': False,
     95}
     96}}}
     97
     98Show the editable=False field 'job'
     99{{{
     100 
     101follow = { 'job' : True, }
     102
     103
     104}}}
     105
     106Show the set of related objects in the module 'choices'
     107{{{
     108follow = {
     109   'choices': True,
     110}
     111
     112}}}
     113
     114Show the set of related objects in the module 'choices', but suppress the 'poll' field of each choice object:
     115{{{
     116
     117  follow = {
     118     'choices': {
     119        'poll': False
     120     }
     121  }
     122
     123}}}
     124
     125Put it all together:
     126{{{
     127  follow = {
     128    'name' : False,
     129    'job' : True,
     130    'choices' : {
     131       'poll' : False
     132    }
     133  }
     134}}}
     135
     136An example of using this in a view function:
    85137
    86138{{{
     
    110162
    111163    # Populate the FormWrapper.
    112     form = formfields.FormWrapper(manipulator, new_data, errors, edit_inline = True) # ,----- EXTRA ARGUMENT
     164    form = formfields.FormWrapper(manipulator, new_data, errors, edit_inline = True) # <----- EXTRA ARGUMENT
    113165   
    114166 
     
    116168
    117169}}}
    118 
    119 Manipulators have a new method, {{{flatten_data()}}}. This takes the data from the existing object (or the defaults in the case of an {{{AddManipulator}}}) and turns it into a suitable form for an HTTP post. It must be called before creating the formfield wrapper is created.
