[Zope] set date property from External Method
Sat, 16 Sep 2000 18:02:51 +0200
I would like to set a property with type 'date' from an External Method.
Because the properties all seem to be saved as a string, in Python I do:
self.prop_datetime = time.strftime('%Y/%m/%d %H:%M:%S.000
This results in a optically (!) correct value like:
2000/09/16 17:49:02.000 GMT+1
However, when I call a document which uses the date, as with:
<dtml-var "'%s %s om %s' % (dd(), aMonth(), TimeMinutes())">
Zope produces an error:
Zope has encountered an error while publishing this resource.
Error Type: NameError
Error Value: dd
The funny thing is, when I manage the properties and just do a 'save
changes', the error is gone and the date is displayed correctly ...
It seems to me that the date property is not saved as a string after all ?
But what then ? I tried self.prop_datetime = time.localtime(time.time()) and
self.prop_datetime = time.time(); both result in a string representing their
value but none of them results in a date/time value ....
