Products.PythonScripts.standard: Utility functions and classes

The functions and classes in this module are available from Python-based scripts, DTML, and Page Templates.


class DTML

DTML - temporary, security-restricted DTML objects

__module__ = __builtin__


call(client=None, REQUEST={}, **kw):

Render the DTML.

To accomplish its task, DTML often needs to resolve various names into objects. For example, when the code <dtml-var spam> is executed, the DTML engine tries to resolve the name spam.

In order to resolve names, you must be pass a namespace to the DTML. This can be done several ways:

The namespace given to a DTML object is the composite of these three methods. You can pass any number of them or none at all. Names will be looked up first in the keyword argument, next in the client and finally in the mapping.

__init__(source, **kw):

Create a DTML object with source text and keyword variables. The source text defines the DTML source content. The optinal keyword arguments define variables.


urlencode(query, doseq=0):

Convert a mapping object (such as a dictionary) or a sequence of two-element tuples to a URL encoded query string. Useful for generating query strings programmatically.

Insert commas every three digits to the left of a decimal point in values containing numbers. For example, the value, "12000 widgets" becomes "12,000 widgets".


Convert characters that have special meaning in URLS to HTML character entities using decimal values.

Show a numeric value with a dollar symbol.


Convert single quotes to pairs of single quotes. This is needed to safely include values in Standard Query Language (SQL) strings.


Show a numeric value with a dollar symbol and two decimal places.


Like url_quote but also replace blank space characters with +. This is needed for building query strings in some cases.
