What does that mean?

But, I suppose that you misunderstand how permissions work (in general and with ZClasses in particular). "SecurityCheckPermission(P,o)" will only return true when the current user has permission "P" on object "o". The "user -> role" and "role -> permission" mapping determine this fact. Thus, unless you adapted a "role -> permission" mapping, only the Zope "Manager" will have this permission (by default). A ZClass combines some objects whose methods are protected by specific permissions. You may want to change these permissions for your ZClass components. Therefore, you can define permissions ("Define permissions" tab) available for this purpose. Then, in your specific object, you can use the "Permission mapping" tab to map the objects permissions to some of your own. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
