[IronPython] gdata calendarservice.Insert

The method you're trying to call is generic so you need to index into it to provide the generic type:

mycalsvc.Insert[type(myentry)](myposturi, myentry)

We're considering adding inference for these type parameters in the future.

Subject: [IronPython] gdata calendarservice.Insert


This is a kinda off-topic, since its a programming issue of Ironpython with GoogleData CalendarService. Specifically, the "Service.Insert" Method which is overloaded and can be on any of the following form;

Insert(TEntry)(Uri, TEntry)
Insert(TEntry)(AtomFeed, TEntry)

Now on the given sample of GDATA which is on CS about Creating calendar events<http://code.google.com/apis/calendar/docs/2.0/developers_guide_dotnet.html#CreatingSingle>, specifically the last line;

// Send the request and receive the response:

AtomEntry insertedEntry = service.Insert(postUri, entry);

How should I code this in python or IronPython? Here is my attempt that resulted to error.

>>> import clr

>>> import System


>>> clr.AddReference("mscorlib.dll")

>>> clr.AddReference("Google.GData.Client.dll")

>>> clr.AddReference("Google.GData.Calendar.dll")

>>> clr.AddReference("Google.GData.Extensions.dll")


>>> import Google.GData.Client as GDClient

>>> import Google.GData.Calendar as GDCal

>>> import Google.GData.Extensions as GDxtn


>>> mycalsvc = GDCal.CalendarService("myapp")

>>> mycalsvc.setUserCredentials("******@gmail.com<http://gmail.com>","*******")


>>> myentry = GDCal.EventEntry()

>>> myentry.Title.Text = "Tennis with Beth"

>>> myentry.Content.Content = "Meet for a quick lesson."



>>> myposturi = System.Uri("http://www.google.com/calendar/feeds/default/private


>>> mycalsvc.Insert(myposturi,myentry)

Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>

TypeError: Insert() takes exactly 4 arguments (2 given)


Again, sorry if its off-topic. But I appreciate any help here.
