First things first: Do not use the addform and editform directive. Pretty much everyone is using zope.formlib. > I notice that when the container's __setitem__ method is called with the > new object, the attributes are not set. When do the attributes get set? set_before_add's fields are set after instantiation (__init__ call). After this the ObjectCreatedEvent should be sent out. set_after_add's fields are set after the object has been added to the container. After this the ObjectAddedEvent is sent out. > However, how is custom handling done in addform?

This is the reason you should use zope.formlib. ;-) Regards, Stephan -- Stephan Richter CBU Physics & Chemistry (B.S.) / Tufts Physics (Ph.D. student) Web2k - Web Software Design, Development and Training _______________________________________________ Zope3-users mailing list Zope3email@example.com http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope3-users
