Frank, I'm not sure how widgets manage to get default values; I know that zope.schema itself doesn't set them.
There is further problem with the design for "default" -- see discussion of "default_factory" on zope3-dev: basically, even if the widget were to get this default, it would be *the* list for every implementation of IMyContent (not *a* list with these default values). Maybe for this very reason the widget ignores the default. Ideally (in my opinion) there would be a default_factory attribute for mutable schema objects, and spec of the list would be: default_factory = lambda : list( ( 1,2,3,5,7 ) ) # new every time, right? That said, if these defaults are taken out of a finite universe then Florian's response is correct. - Shaun _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
