Oh dear. That's one of the worst error messages I've seen. > What I do not understand is how to interpret the [, ] By reading the source code. Object field validation actually attempts to validate the schema (IObjectId in this case) of the object you're trying to store (the ObjectId object, in this case). If any of the fields cannot be validated during this nested validation, you get a WrongContainedType with the list of errors (one for each field). Apparently those errors have horrible __repr__s. That ought to be fixed. > I'm not passing a list nor is the schema using a list. > > I realize that this may be pretty basic but I am missing something in > reading the error. I'd put a breakpoint in zope.schema._field, specifically, in Object._validate, and try to see what's wrong by single-stepping. Marius Gedminas -- We're sysadmins. To us, data is a protocol-overhead.
