I still havn't figured it out, but it seems very strange to me. it seems like folder-like objects work, but content-like objects don't.. for example folder = Folder() interface.directlyProvides( folder, IMarker ) file = File() interface.directlyProvides( file, IMarker ) root['folder'] = folder root['file'] = file would leave "folder" directly providing the "IMarker" interface, but "file" directly providing nothing. the other strange thing is that the interface seems to be added to the provided-list, but then it is removed again later...so when you look at the introspector tab in the zmi, it's gone. regards.luis
are you sure? I tried with:
[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~/Zope3/src $ python2.4
Python 2.4.2 (#1, Dec 4 2005, 15:28:38)
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from zope.app.file import file
>>> f = file.File()
<zope.app.file.file.File object at 0xb7cbad2c>
>>> import zope.interface
>>> class IMarker(zope.interface.Interface):
... """Marker interface"""
>>> zope.interface.directlyProvides(f, IMarker)
hope it helps
