[Zope] Re: How to Add a File Dynamically??--manage_clone ERROR
Wed, 21 May 2003 22:07:30 +0530
I am unable to use manage_clone to clone my files into a new folder that I
I create a new folder in the Zope Directory Structure and then try to clone
a python Script and a Page Template like
when I add a folder into the Zope Structure I can also add a Page
templae(index_html) on the fly.
I am trying something exactly similar.
I am able to use manage_clone in my External Method and use it to Clone a
Python Script and a Page template if I am logged into the ZMI but if I am
not logged in then i am asked to Log in.
This gies against the whole intention of using manage)_clone.
Where am I going wrong?
Please help me out.
Thanks and Best regards

: Hi Josef ,
: Thanks for yopur prompt reply . I am tryiong to resolve my problem but
: getting stuck again.Please help me out here.
: I am trying to use manage_clone to add a python script into a folder .
: I am adding a new folder intot the Zope directory Structure and then
: the context of the newly added Flder and adding a Python Script into it
: .This is similar to what Zope does when adding a folder and adding a Page
: template(index_html) into it.
: #My Python file which I am adding as an External Method in
: Zope ---------obj_Clone_Sep.py
: #from OFS import CopyContainer.manage_clone
: from App.Common import *
: import re
: import CopyContainer
: from Globals import REPLACEABLE, NOT_REPLACEABLE, UNIQUE
: def getCloneSEP(folderObj,id,cloneObj,strName):
: ob=folderObj._getOb(id) #getting the context of the folder
: if(strName != ''):
: ob.CopyContainer.manage_clone(cloneObj,strName) #I am cloning
: cloneObj and giving it a new name
: #This is the Error I get on trying to add a Clone
: Error Type: ImportError
: Error Value: No module named CopyContainer
: #My Python Script
: #I first add a folder
: #I then clone a Python Script into the Folder
: result = context.sis.Public.add_fol_sep(context
: #add_fol_sep is an External MEthod that ads a file into the current
: (which is a folder in the Zope Directory Structure)
: resu =
: #this is my call to External Python Script --------obj_Clone_Sep.py
: return resu
: If I try to add a Python file without importing the OFS Module I am asked
: to login to the ZMI for accessing the manage_clone method .This is
: inspite of my using External Methods.
: Where am I going wrong??
: Thanks and Best regards

: : > 1) index_html - (Page Template)
: : > 2) tree.py - (Python Script)
: : > 3) getPath.zsql - (ZSQL Method)
: : I did it for a DTMLMethod, but I think it is similar to the other cases.
: : my case, I just created an external method with this:
: : from OFS import DTMLMethod
: : def createMethod(folderObj, id, title, text):
: : # Creates a dtml Method
: : DTMLMethod.addDTMLMethod(self=folderObj,id=id,title=title)
: : #Gets a reference to the created object
: : ob=folderObj._getOb(id)
: : #Changes the contents of the created object
: : ob.manage_edit(data=text,title=title)
: : You just have to look at the html source code of the Zope's manage
: : interface and see what methods are called when creating/editing a
: : python script, page template and a ZSQL Method. Then, you have
: : to search the implementation of this methods to see what parameters
: : you need and which packages you have to import.
