Thanks for your input, Maciej.

I also thought about this solution but I don't like it because I will
have clean up issues like: when do I remove 'myarg' from the session?

I like this way better

Or change 'myarg' argument to be 'form.myarg' and use an url like this:


In the end I wrote another interface like this:

class IDialog(Interface)
  myarg = schema.TextLine(...)

then a class like:

class Dialog(object):
  implements(IDialog, IMyContent)

  def __init__(self, context, request):
    self.myarg = request['form.myarg']
    self.context = context

  # here I implement all attributes and methods of IMyContent
  # using delegation to self.context

And finally, my form:

class MyForm(form.BaseForm):

  form_fields = form.Fields(IDialog,
    form_fields['myarg'].custom_widget = HiddenWidget

    def __init__(self, context, request):
        context = Dialog(context, request)
        super(MyForm, self).__init__(context, request)

An this worked well. The only part I think it's not optimal is the
reimplementation (by delegation) of IMyContent in my Dialog dialog.

Any thoughts?
