I have looked at many of files in lib/python/app and a other folders in the zope installation. I am looking for a way to change the interface a little. I see some recognizable stuff there, but can't figure out how most of the pages are created, how I could change them. I want to add a frame to the edit page so I can submit while editing without refreshing the page. I would have to put a frame and javascript function I wrote, and include below because it is very useful.
 
This makes editing long docs in a textarea tolerable. I use it on a site with a lower frame where the user can see their changes and not lose their place as they edit/save.
 
thanks,
Richard
 
function bgSubmit(frm)
{
frmHide = parent.frames["hidden"].document
var nd="<form name='" + frm.name + "' action='" + frm.action + "' method='" + frm.method + "'>"
for (i=0;i<document.forms[frm.name].elements.length;++i)
 {
 elem=document.forms[frm.name].elements[i]
  if (elem.type=="select-one" || elem.type=="select-multiple")
   {
    nd+="<select name='" + elem.name + "'"
    if (elem.type=="select-multiple") {nd+=" multiple "}
    nd+=">"
    for (x=0;x<elem.options.length;++x)
    {
     nd+="<option "
     if (elem.options[x].selected) {nd+="selected "}
     nd+="value='" + elem.options[x].value + "'>" + elem.options[x].text + "</option>"
     }
     nd+="</select>"
    }else if (elem.type=="textarea"){
    nd +="<textarea name='" + elem.name + "'>" + elem.value + "</textarea>"
   } else {
    nd +="<input type='" + elem.type + "' name='" + elem.name + "' value='" + elem.value + "'"
     if (elem.checked) {nd+=" checked "}
    nd+=">"
   }
 }
nd+="</form>"
frmHide.open("text/html");
frmHide.write( nd );
frmHide.close();
parent.frames["hidden"].document.forms[0].submit()
}
 
//this function assume you have a frame named "hidden" and takes a form object as arg, e.g., bgSubmit (window.document.frmToSave)
