> Hi,
> Zope newbie here, a bit lost on namespaces...
> I have created a folder in the zope root called "RandomGreeting".  
> Inside this folder, there is one DTML METHOD called "Greet".  "Greet" 
> contains the following line:
> <p><dtml-var expr="_.whrandom.choice(sayHellos)"></p>
> "sayHellos" is a property of the "RandomGreeting" folder, and 
> contains 4 lines which are various ways to say 
> hello : "Ola","Hi","Bonjour","Sawasdi".  The purpose of this method
> is to print out a random greeting.
> Everytime i click "View" for this DTML Method, i get a random hello.  
> Fine, that is exactly what I want.
> The problem is that I am trying to use this "method" from its parent

> I have tried :
> <dtml-var RandomGreeting.Greet>
> <dtml-var RandomGreeting.Greet()>
> <dtml-var "RandomGreeting.Greet()">
> <dtml-var /RandomGreeting/Greet>
> all of these, to know avail.  I am getting either a NameError or

> possible to call functions from child objects is it not? 
> Please help with some enlightenment.  Many thanks in advance.
