This is not so difficult, and very useful.

The tricky part is having the ticket forms be dynamic enough to represent arbitrary number of fields. Even that isn't such a big deal really.

comment:5 by anonymous, 18 years ago

What types of fields can be added? Aside from lists, will there be:

  • text
  • text area
  • checkbox
  • multiple selection lists
  • radio button group (2 for yes/no true/false, more for one of many)

Having the single selection lists is a great starting point so please don't bump this from 0.8. I just wanted to point out that having more field types would be nice. Also, how will this relate to the report queries?

Initial support commited in [699].

See TracTicketsCustom for sample configuration.

Yet to do:

  • 'textarea' type is missing
  • Possibly a snazzier layout of widgets
  • Add static text to 'the yellow part' when viewing a ticket with custom props.

I get the same error as vittorio on 2.2

comment:10 by arnarb@…, 18 years ago

Python docs say ConfigParser.items is new since 2.3
