I'm trying to create an inline interface to manage_edit. If a user is
authenticated, instead of seeing the default views of each snippet of
content, they get a textarea with a submit button for each snippet.
I'm still new to all this, so I'm not sure how I should be going about
it: a zclass with the content as a property? a product that subclasses
DTMLDocument and overrides the __call__ method? I settled on creating a
DTML method, "editable", which works fine if you call it from the url
(code included at bottom of mail):
Inside "editable", when I call <dtml-var __str__> the content of the
parent object is returned, which is what I wanted. The plan was,
whenever I had a snippet which I wanted to be editable, I would call it
inside my dtml thus:
which of course doesn't work. Eventually I found I had to do...
...because the editable method doesn't inherit the context of snippet
like it does when you call it from the URL, and I needed to authenticate
the user. But now I'm finding that the <dtml-var __str__> inside the
editable method is actually rendering the content of the page that the
snippet is in, rather than the snippet itself.
How should I call the editable method of snippet in such a way that it
inherits the context of snippet rather than the context of its parent?
I've tried <dtml-with snippet><dtml-var editable></dtml-with> but then
editable can't access any other objects, e.g. update_content, in the
folder. Perhaps I should be going about this completely differently?
editable is a DTML method:
<input type="text" name="title:text" value="<dtml-var title_or_id>">
<textarea name="data:text" cols="30" rows="20">
update_content is an external method:
