the below will should work fine, although the _string.atoi is unesc
since you can just use 0, or 1 by itself inside "" and have it treated
as an int and its a bit inefficient to use objectValues over objectIds
(list of objects vs. list of strings) although it saves you from having
to do a dtml-let doc_id=sequence-item to evaluate in pythonish "" dtml
although the code below makes it obvious it should also be stated that
ids are strings.
one caveat, i wouldn't count on the id naming sequence to nesc reflect
the order of the items, as an item maybe deleted etc and have new ones
created which replace them. if you've not going to be deleting items,
another possibility is
<dtml-call "REQUEST.set(id, _.str(_.len(objectIds(['DTML
another caveat, in a heavily hit site you're going to be generating id
errors(both methods) because one thread will commit a new doc while the
other tries a moment later to commit with the same id. hence the reason
why i would just use a random int like <dtml-call "REQUEST.set(id,
> it is not tested but may it works
> <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('newid', _.string.atoi('0'))"
> <dtml-in "objectValues('DTML Document')">
> <dtml-if "_.int(id) >= newid">
> <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('newid', _.int(id) + _.string.atoi('1'))">
> Your new id is: <dtml-var newid>
> may you have to use _.string.atoi(id) instead _.int(id)
