Oops...I see the example you list for your own code looks correct.

Here are some issues to consider for troubleshooting your problem:

- Are you getting an error when one of your fields shows up in an edit
form? If so, your first clue will be to look at the error message ;)

- If not (assuming this is the case) what widget is being used for your
field? If Zope is picking out the wrong widget, your field object either
doesn't implement the new field interface (IMyField) or the interface
resolution order is listing another interface first.

Here's a trick:

  >>> field = MyField()
  >>> from zope.interface import providedBy
  >>> providedBy(field).__iro__

This will print the list of interfaces in the order Zope uses for
lookup. It may be the case that IMyField shows up *after* some others,
which would cause Zope to find another widget.
