Cross-Web Forms

I have multiple webs within a TWiki sharing the same classifications. In hand I do not want to create these classifications (better form-definitions) multiple times within the same TWiki.


  • forms should be clickable (means: title must be clickable)
  • value should not include the form-web prefix.

     as form-definition

     refers to Form.XYTopic as select/checkbox

Implementing this is very trivial:

TWiki::renderFormData: check if Title includes . an append this web-prefix to the value.

            if ($title =~ /\./) { 
               my ($t1, $t2) = split (/\./, $title); 
               # mskg: regexp should not be evaluated!
               $value = $t1 . "." . $value if ($value ne "" && !($value =~ /^$t1\./));

Form::link: change rendering since you want the form to be rendered as the topic-view.

    if ($name =~ /\./)
       ($web, $name) = split (/\./, $name);
    if( &TWiki::Store::topicExists( $web, $name ) ) {
