Subject: [Zope] Reportlab issue
Hi Zope List,
I have an Zope application that uses ReportLab to generate acrobat
viewable reports. (I already posted this to reportlab list - so far no
Heres the problem:
I display an acrobat report (using Firefox or IE 6) and say scroll down to
page 10. I then use the <browser> back button to re-enter my Zope
Now, even if I click various unrelated pages in the application (clearing
the request,etc) and then return to the Report (which is always freshly
generated) it will try to re-display at page 10 - instead of top of page.
This occurs even if the data being reported has changed, and this occurs
even if a different report is generated!
Note: that I use
import tempfile and
tmpFile2 = tempfile.mktemp()
to keep pdfPath's unique ...
I've tried combinations of "Content-Disposition" params like changing
filename=, etc. Nothing is changing this behavior.
I've tried (a reportlab mailing list suggestion) varying to <forms action=
<form name="printform" method="post" action="extensions/pyBudgetReports"
'extensions/pyBudgetReports/?random=' + context.python.pyTime()">
No help either.
I have never used ReportLab, but is there a possibility that when you go
back to the adobe document it is being served from a cache? You could try
using html meta tags or response.setHeader (better) to make sure the
document is not being served from the cache.
Just a shot in the dark!
