Thanks Rik it works.

I've noticed in some cases that one puts empty brackets at the end of
certain zope object methods.  Is that there for methods that can take
parameters?


[rh]Um, not quite, it has to do with the way of calling the object methods
in question. DTML has two ways of calling: by name and through expressions.

1. The 'normal' Zope way of writing things is <dtml-var  objectValues>. This
is shorthand for <dtml-var name="objectValues">.

2. The other way is <dtml-var "objectValues">. This is shorthand for
<dtml-var expr="objectValues">. Everything inside the expression is treated
as a python expression. If you call it without the brackets, you're just
referencing the method. If you try that in a DTML Method and look in the
source of the diplayed document you'll see something like
<Python Method object at 13fcbf0>. If you want to _call_ the method, you'll
have to add the brackets (with or without arguments).

Hope this is clear.



Rik
