Thanks to all the responders. It gave me some ideas, but alas no luck.
Even with generating the script with a Python script or DTML, the
problem remains (for me at least) to get a value from the DOM passed as
an argument to a Python script that queries my database. If my Python
script didn't take an argument, I'd have no problem. I could do this
values. But I'd like to cut down on what the browser has to handle.
What the user chooses in the first selection can reduce what they get
to choose in selection two from 3000 choices to hundreds. I'd prefer to
have the backend reduce the result set rather than having the browser
do the work.
We do this a lot... a few key concepts to get you going:
hiddenframe.location.href = '<dtml-var
specific to the situation (when zope processes the dtml tags, the tags will
This allows you to store zope objects/fields/etc in variables that
reload in order to make 'invisible' (not really, but close enough) calls
from the browser to the server
