[Zope] AUTHENTICATED_USER (or something) making me crazy

2000-10-07 Thread Dennis Nichols

If I inspect REQUEST by inserting a dtml-var REQUEST in my dtml I can see 
that AUTHENTICATED_USER is set to Anonymous User. Yet when I insert the 
following code, it never displays Guest. It takes the else branch and then, 
perversely, displays Anonymous User. Please point out my stupid mistake.

dtml-if "AUTHENTICATED_USER=='Anonymous User'"
  Guest
dtml-else
  dtml-var AUTHENTICATED_USER
/dtml-if

Thanks. Maybe I shouldn't work on Saturdays. Zope 2.2.2 roughly, Python 
1.5.2, RH 6.2

You can check the username of AUTHENTICATED_USER as in dtml-if
"AUTHENTICATED_USER.getUserName()=='Anonymous User'" (To all the people who
complained about me using _.str(...)) or you might want to check the role as
in dtml-if "AUTHENTICATED_USER.has_role('Anonymous User')".

Dennis,

try:

dtml-if "AUTHENTICATED_USER.getUserName() == 'Anonymous User'"
Guest
dtml-else
  dtml-var AUTHENTICATED_USER
/dtml-if

Zope is 'celver' enough to realise that you must mean the username when you
do:

  dtml-var AUTHENTICATED_USER

but 'stupid' enough not to realise when you do:

dtml-if "AUTHENTICATED_USER=='Anonymous User'"

Basic rule of thumb is that anythin in quotes is Python, and since AU is an
object, it must be treated as such.

btw, if you haven't yet got the Zope Quick Reference, get it now!

you still here, what you waiting for! - go get it now!  8¬)

Re: [Zope] AUTHENTICATED_USER (or something) making me crazy

Dennis,

You might benefit from reading some of the general HOWTO's at
http://www.zope.org. Consider searching for "AUTHENTICATED_USER" or "user
manager".

A quick answer to your problem though:

AUTHENTICATED_USER is actually a class object (meaning it contains
variables of it's own, as well as functions). To _properly_ access the
data in the AUTHENTICATED_USER, you need to call upon the methods
(functions) that perform the task you want.

In this case, you want to compare the current user to some other value. In
that case, you want to call the getUserName method of AUTHENTICATED_USER.

Your code modified to work would be:

  dtml-if "AUTHENTICATED_USER.getUserName()=='Anonymous User'"
Guest
  dtml-else
dtml-var "AUTHENTICATED_USER.getUserName()"
  /dtml-if

Regards,

Knight
