I got this answer to my question about how to render a dtml document from a
>testisDocTemp = 1
> " A simple test method "
> return HTMLFile('skins/' + self.skin, globals())(None,md)
And I have been busy trying to read the source code to understand the
As far as I understand the story goes a little like this:
HTMLFile returns an object (through inheritance) "String" in file
"DT_String.py" that has "__call__()" implemented, which means that the class
can be called as a function... Hmm ... I had actually not seen this method
used in Python before.
This method accepts an object in which it will look up values to insert in
the dtml file, and a mapping object (dictionary) that also will look up
values to insert.
So i guess that is what (None,md) does.
But I dont understand what "ignored" does in my method, as it is unused,
unless it is used by md
Furthermore I dont understand what md is. Some kind of mapping object
naturally, but where does it come from?
Also what is testisDocTemp supposed to do?
If I grep the source a "isDocTemp" shows up but is isn't easy to see what
this does either.
