Hi again, I'm trying to learn Zope through the Web Component Development book and find myself stuck implementing simple views. This was posted earlier but and I've worked on it since but feel totally unable to proceed.
I'm working on WinXP. I can manipulate simple persistant objects using debugzope. The objects are listed in the ZMI. However I can't do anything with the views supplied as part of the example code. For example, under debugzope , following the instructions in the text, if I try to examine the supplied view with: view = getMultiAdapter((lasagne, request), name=u'index.html') I get a lookup error. Both lasagne, and request are valid objects. Also, from my browser even though the ZMI shows my objects, any attempt to view them fails. Apparently my view is not being registered. A line does exists in the configuration file that points to the folder containing the view... <include package=".browser" /> This is all code supplied by the book pasted in from the web site -- I don't have the depth of knowledge of Zope yet to figure this out. I've tried re-installing Zope. I did a clean install of Zope with a new instance on a different machine (also WinXP) and get the same result. The browser folder contains a configuration file pointing to the supplied view with name="index.html". Where do I go from here? I'd like to know what's wrong, but more importantly, I'd like to know how to go about finding out what's wrong without having to resort to this list. Thanks in advance... Robert
