Roger, Thanks for your reply. I'm still having problems getting this to work.
I'm not sure I am supposed to use a BaseForm, Form, AddForm, or what, for the sub-item. I'm not sure how to register it in zcml to not get adaption errors when I run it. Would there be any chance to have the example with the "car" and "owner" in the Sub-Form doc test included in the formdemo package. I'd like to see that included with "Class I" and "Class II" for both AddForm and EditForm since it is such a common use case. Perhaps I'm just dense, but I still have problems converting doc tests into an actual working zope instance. The formdemo package was a god send to get a simple addform working since I had no idea you needed to use the IFormLayer. Using the demo that was no longer a problem. Again thanks for all your help.
