I have never used ZDOM, but a quick scan of the documentation indicates that this is strictly for server-side processing. If you are trying to get access to the client side browser DOM then ZDOM is not going to do it for you.

Perhaps some more details of what you are trying to accomplish would be helpful to list participants.

Subject: Re: [Zope] Better ZDOM examples? (take two)

Thank you for your reply Jonathan.  I am aware of all the various
form-based solutions out there.  These are simple-case solutions that
would work, if I wanted to use them.  It may turn out that I have no
choice but to use the REQUEST / form method (which I've done countless
times).  At this time I haven't seen any examples of ZDOM which is
what I want....

This is what I've found for documentation:

It's difficult to understand what's going on in this document. Perhaps you've worked with it before?

Here is some info on ZDOM (but i don't think it is what you want!):

This is a client side problem not a server side (ie. zope) issue. Normally, all form fields are accessible via REQUEST on the server side. A couple of

1) use <input type='hidden' ...> html tags to pass info back to zope
2) use javascript to create new form fields (ie. based on some user
interaction, you need to pass something new back to zope)
