Forum OpenACS Development: Re: GoogleMap Widget on ad_form
so basically create a new template::widget::googlemaps and a corresponding validator template::data::validate::googlemaps (name will be of your choice of course). Validator can be something as trivial as "return 1", depending on the logic of your widget.
As reference you can have a look at the various widgets and validators already defined:
Hope this helps
Yes, it helps a lot. I see it changes the perspective. They show a way to create a whole new widget, such as category pkg does, which in fact is a better approach (modular, easy to reuse and etc.)
I'm also getting back to old documentation about ad_form, plus grabbing some samples of code from classic packages such as bug-tracker, calendar, and of course, acs-subsite.
Thanks again Antonio.
