Forum OpenACS Q&A: How would I have a page with a search-for-user? Is there existing code?

What I want to do is let a user pick a user_id so that I can create an object with the user_id... Is there something I can use that's already in the toolkit?


acs-admin has a user search for administrators you could look at that. Its really old-style code though.

Also check out the directory package which is a user list.

Check out the party_search form widget as well ( As the docs mention, it's a little limited but still useful. Grep around as it's used in a few places in the toolkit.
