I have a zope.app.preference.preference.PreferenceGroup based on an IUserSettings interface for which I want to generate an edit form. I've tried to do it with a class based on EditForm but that does not worked for me since the EditFrom changes the self.context object. If I simply replace self.context by the object I got from UserPreferences it complains about PreferenceGroup being not adaptable to IUserSettings (and it's right about that).
Sounds like you want to create an adapter. The adapter is what's used for getting/setting values.
Of course I need to initialize the from with the values from the the PreferenceGroup object. Is there a better way than modifying the request like request.form['form.max_size'] for each field? I couldn't find one in the documentation but I'm almost sure there is a more elegant solution (since it's Zope!).
Did you look at the get_rendered argument to zope.formlib.form.FormField? Though I suspect the adapter I suggested above would do the trick. -Fred -- Fred L.
