Hey all,

I just wanted to check to make sure I was doing this right, and if so, provide a resource that would turn up on subsequent googling. This example involves the getting menus items with the getService/getUtility functions and is taken from Philip's worldcookery example code.


Here's the pertinent zcml (worldcookery/browser/configure.zcml):

  <browser:menu
      id="alternate_views"
      title="Menu containing a list of alternative views for an object"
      />

  <browser:addMenuItem
      title="[label-recipe] Recipe"
      class="worldcookery.recipe.Recipe"
      permission="worldcookery.EditRecipes"
      view="AddRecipe.html"
      />

Here's the original code (worldcookery/browser/recipe.py):

  def alternateViews(self):
    menu_service = zapi.getService(servicenames.BrowserMenu)
    menu_id = 'alternate_views'
    return menu_service.getMenu(menu_id, self.context, self.request)

Here's the modified example that I'd want to check if I am doing correctly:

  def alternateViews(self):
    browser_menu = zapi.getUtility(IBrowserMenu, 'alternate_views')
    return browser_menu.getMenuItems(self.context, self.request)

Am I doing this properly?

Thanks!

d
