hi!

i have the following code that doesn't work
contextForm = {"contextName":"test2","contextDescription":"test22","number":"1","contextName1":"test1","contextDescription1":"test11"}

if contextForm.has_key("number"):
    num=contextForm["number"].value

the error i get is
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'value'

the trace is
bash$ python
Python 2.3.4 (#3, May 28 2004, 13:31:19)

>>> contextForm = {"contextName":"test2","contextDescription":"test22","number":"1","contextName1":"test1","contextDescription1":"test11"}
>>> if contextForm.has_key("number"):
...     num=contextForm["number"].value
...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 2, in ?
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'value'

any ideas why it isn't working?

thanks
