Hi- I guess I'm somewhere past a 'newbie' (after a few solid months)
and I'm developing a calendar-based (but not based on calendar tag)
'event-log' 'black-box app' for lack of a better term, for eventual relase
to Zope.org, if only as a helper for _new_ newbies.
I'm stuck on what I guess is a pythonish thing and my brain hurts.
Is there a (straightforward?) way to dynamically compose function
argument lists? For example, in C, you can write"
f(arg1, arg2, (conditional expression)?(val for TRUE state):(val for FALSE state)).
Or one can embed a fcn call within an argument list in order to supply a
needed function parameter.
In my case here in Zope, sometimes I have to search a ZCatalog
prior to displaying the results in a <dtml-in> looping construct.
Now if the 'moderated' property is active I want to add the keyword arg
to the arg list at the time that the searchResults method is invoked.
Since this invokation is in an expression it's certainly a python thing, but I can't
any reference to this type of capability in any reference I have. Did I miss
is there just no simple way to do this?
The only way I can see to do it is to wrap Catalog.searchResults() in an external
some ifs and elifs.
