[Zope] convert a String ...

2001-01-14 Thread Marc Fischer


Hi,

how is it possible to convert a string into my own zclass type?
I get a String from a form and want to do some operation like
string.manage_addFile(... on it. So what to do ??? Perhaps some out there is
able to help ...

Thanks,

Marc

To "convert" a string to an object, you use the getitem() function.

## example 1:
Your: dtml-var last_name
#returns:
Your: Peter Bengtsson

## example 2:
dtml-call "REQUEST.set('var_to_go_and_get','last_name')"
Your: dtml-var "_.getitem(var_to_go_and_get)"
# returns:
Your: Peter Bengtsson

There's more

You could also do this:

dtml-var "_[var_to_go_and_get]" or dtml-var "_['last_name']"

The different between _['foo'] and _.getitem('foo') is tricky.

"_.getitem(string)" converts a string into an object.

Probably, you will not get a "zclass type".
But such a type would probably not have a "manage_addFile" method
anyway.

Do you mean "Z Instance" rather than "zclass type"?
