[Zope] [Q] Generating a dynamic navigation bar...
Fri, 29 Sep 2000 10:41:52 -0700
I have a folder with various DTML Documents and sub-folders in it. Sort
I am in the process of writing a DTML method to be used from each of these
DTML documents which will generate a dynamic tabbed navigation bar for the
other DTML Documents AND sub-folders in this folder. I am envisioning a
short table across the width of the page with cells containing links to the
other DTML documents and sub-folders.
This is what I have so far:
<TABLE BORDER=0 CELLSPACING=2 CELLPADDING=0 WIDTH="100%">
<!--#in "objectItems(['DTML Document','Folder'])"-->
<!--#if "title != ''"-->
<TD BGCOLOR="#99CCCC" ALIGN=CENTER VALIGN=TOP>
<a href="<!--#var "absolute_url()"-->"><!--#var title--></a>
1. The problem with this DTML method is that all the DTML Documents and
Folders are represented as a link in the nav bar. I want to build
intelligence into this DTML method to make the tab / cell for the current
document just textual (as opposed to a link). If I am calling this method
from foo_html, I do not the "tab" for foo_html to be a link. How do I do
this? I'm guessing some kind of #if.
2. Currently, the TD cells of the table vary in length based on the
contents of the cell. I want all the TDs to be of equal length. I want to
first count the number of DTML Documents and Folders and make each TD to be
width 100/n % (where n is the number of Documents and Folders). Any ideas
on how I can do math inside DTML methods?
Lisa: It's full, Dad, that means you have to take out the trash.
Bart: Yup, that's the rule. "He who tops it off, drops it off."
Homer: Nuh-uh. "It isn't filled until it's spilled."
