I tried your suggestion Jonathan and I get this:
Error Type: AttributeError
Error Value: has_key
Thanks anyway.
I never used ZPT, I'm not sure how to approach it from that angle...
would it be easy to do?  (You mean tal and metal right?)

Anyone have any other suggestions?

It might make your life easier if you used a dtml-let (WARNING: untested):
<dtml-in dictList="ScriptThatReturnsAListofDicts()">

But this is still pretty ugly.  Another approach would be to clean up the data in your list/dicts within the python script, before you get to the dtml method.

Subject: [Zope] dictionary from sequence-item

I am looping through a list of dictionary objects using <dtml-in...
and within the dtml-in body I have:
<dtml-var "_.getitem('sequence-item')['titled']" missing="none">
Some of the dictionaries in the list don't have 'titled' key so it should replace it with the word "none", but it gives me an error
Error Type: KeyError
Error Value: 'titled'
I don't understand.  Another option is that I can use <dtml-if "_.getitem('sequence-item').has_key('titled')"> but it doesn't work, says has_key is an unknown attribute.  This is the stupidest thing ever! it's a dictionary object!
I try to typecast it using the dict(_.getitem('sequence-item')).has_key('titled') it gives me an error saying it can't typecast, but I am 100% sure it's a dictionary object because I can access it easily _.getitem('sequence-item')['titled'] for those that have that key.

Any idea how I can check if the titled key is in the dictionary for the current list item?

Thanks in advance guys!
