#9967 new enhancement

Allow setting option values through Option objects

Trac currently allows the user to read an option's value through a Option object, like in the following code:

class MyComponent(Component):
  my_option = Option('my_section', 'my_option')
  def my_func(self):
    # retrieving option value
    my_option_value = self.my_option

When calling my_func(), my_option_value will be filled with the current option values (as specified in trac.ini).

Now, while retrieving works this way, one can't set the option value this way.

class MyComponent(Component):
  my_option = Option('my_section', 'my_option')
  def my_func(self):
    # setting option value
    # will raise an AttributeError
    self.my_option = 'test'

I've created a patch that enables this functionality. I've done some tests with it and it seems to work for Option and all of its subclasses.

Interesting. You may want to revise the patch once #7378 is finalized.

It might be good to delegate to the setter code that checks valid values, such as: LoggingAdminPanel.render_admin_panel.

Related, it would be nice if TracAdmin config set raised an error when setting an invalid value, at least for options defined in ExtensionOption and OrderedExtensionOption. Similarly, when enabling/disabling components with TracAdmin, we autocomplete the components:

> config set components tracopt.versioncontrol.

It would be nice to raise an error when attempting to enable/disable a invalid component.
