So, on a rend.Page you can do:
T.div[ T.directive('field textbox dbcolumn1'), T.directive('field textarea dbcolumn2'), ]
def render_field(self, what): kind, dbcol = what.split(' ') return widgets[kind](value=self.dbrow[dbcol])
...however page.Element's "rendered" method doesn't see the spaces in the T.directive and instead looks for a render method called:
"field textbox dbcolumn1"
...which is not useful.
Intentional or just missed?
