Python - Concatenate Python query

I'm using the python-google-places script but I'm facing a problem when integrating the code into a function called with two parameters: "MyLocation" and "MyType".

"MyLocation" works well but "MyType" doesn't work.

Code that works (without a variable for "MyType")

# Configuration de l'encodage (a mettre dans tous les scripts)
# encoding: utf-8

def ExtractGoogleHotspots(Location,MyType):
from googleplaces import GooglePlaces, types, lang
YOUR_API_KEY = 'XXXXXXX'
google_places = GooglePlaces(YOUR_API_KEY)
# You may prefer to use the text_search API, instead.
query_result = google_places.nearby_search(
location=Location, #Location could be a name or coordinates in english format : 4.04827,9.70428
keyword='',
radius=1000,#Radius in meters (max = 50 000)
types=[types.TYPE_PHARMACY] #Specify the Type
)

for place in query_result.places:
# Returned places from a query are place summaries.
Name = place.name
Name = Name.encode('utf-8')#Encodage en UTF-8 obligatoire pour éviter les erreurs : "UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character..."
Latitude = place.geo_location['lat']
Longitude = place.geo_location['lng']
# The following method has to make a further API call.
place.get_details()
Details = place.details
Address = place.formatted_address
Address = Address.encode('utf-8')
Phone_International = place.international_phone_number
Website = place.website

Result = str(MyType) + ";" + Name + ";" + Address + ";" + str(Phone_International) + ";" + str(Latitude) + ";" + str(Longitude)
+ ";" + str(Website)
print Result

How to resolve the problem to have a variable to define the Types part?

Answer

To concatenate the type name with TYPE_ in take it from types you can use getattr

MyTypes = [ getattr(types, 'TYPE_' + Type.upper() ]
