What you need to do is define the customer field as a choice in the
invCust = Choice(title=u"Customer",
and define the "Customers" vocabulary, that will list all customers in
your app. Look at zope.schema.vocabulary.SimpleVocabulary.
Thank for your answer, that gave me a starting point.
Sorry to be annoying, but after such starting point I am stuck again:
- how do I get all my Customers instances? The Customer class is marked
as 'Persistent' and 'IContentType'.
- how do I connect them to the vocabulary in a way to store a
'reference' to the object and not, say, only its custName?
I have to fill 2 slots in the following:
allterms = 
for customer in [ ...What goes here...? ]:
oneTerm = zope.schema.vocabulary.SimpleTerm
([...What goes here...?], title=customer.custName)
A somewhat derived question:
- Given a certain Invoice, how do I use the 'reference' to the Customer
Object to access the Customer of the Invoice?
Again, these are basic questions, but I am not able to find
documentation about this.
