Hi, I'm not sure I entirely understand the goal here either, but you may want to look into the path method.
Here's what I recently had to use it for. I'm building a little photo album application for my sister, it supports nested albums. I had a page template called view I was using as a method, but wanted to logically group the actions specific to a single image into a folder. So, I have a folder called view. When an image is viewed the URL looks like /some_album/some_pic.jpg/view/?display=large If I want to do operations or locate properties on some_pic.jpg I extract that part of the URL, and then pass it to the path function. The code looks like this: <span tal:define="imgName python:request['URL2'][len(request['URL3']+1:]"> <span tal:define="global imgObj python:path('here/'+imgName)"></span> </span> HTH, Alan On 11/16/05, Chris Withers <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Mark Gibson wrote: > > However, what I'm looking for is being able to take a string such as > > '<div tal:content="here/absolute_url">The url</div>' > > > > and be able to evaluate the TALES expression in the string to produced > > something like: '<div>http://mydomain.com/theUrl</div>' > > > > Any chance there's a recipe for this? > > If you can explain to us why you think you want to do that, we can > likely tell you what you really want to be doing ;-) > > Chris > > -- > Simplistix - Content Management, Zope & Python Consulting > - http://www.simplistix.co.uk > > _______________________________________________ > Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org > http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope > ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** > (Related lists - > http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce > http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ) > _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
