5.1. Request and ResultSet methods

Those are methods you’ll find on both request objects and on repository session.

5.1.1. Request methods

URL handling:

  • build_url(*args, **kwargs), returns an absolute URL based on the given arguments. The controller supposed to handle the response, can be specified through the first positional parameter (the connection is theoretically done automatically :).

Data formatting:

  • format_date(date, date_format=None, time=False) returns a string for a date time according to instance’s configuration
  • format_time(time) returns a string for a date time according to instance’s configuration

And more...:

  • tal_render(template, variables), renders a precompiled page template with variables in the given dictionary as context

5.1.2. Result set methods

  • get_entity(row, col), returns the entity corresponding to the data position in the result set
  • complete_entity(row, col, skip_bytes=True), is equivalent to get_entity but also call the method complete() on the entity before returning it
