[ZWeb] Highliting data from multiple selection list
Wed, 6 Mar 2002 16:53:42 -0700
I've tried the split method but it did not worked and I get an "object has
no attribute 'split' " error if agency_selected is blank. So, how do i turn a
string into a list?
Here's my <dtml-var agency_selected>:
['Agua Caliente Gaming Commission Spa Casino', 'Barona Band of the Capitan
Grande of Diegueno Miss', 'Bay Mills Indian Community Gaming Commission']
