first, many thanks for the very fast and polite answer. I already know
the Zope-Book for many years, but I did not find a solution there, for
my special problem.
Perhaps I have to give a little bit more context to you. I tried to make
the code-excerpt short - perhaps too short.
The object doc has nothing to do directly with uploading the file. In
this object is some further information. And to do things in a handy
way, I need that further information (doc) in the method, called after
submitting the form (addUploadFile).
Is there a solution for that available?
Again, many thanks in advance,

like this would work because you dream of it :-)
And of course you can not *pass* instances in some way through HTTP.
This makes totally no sense.
No idea what your intention is with your code. If you specify
'addUploadFile' then this method will be called within the context
of your current object. If you need to call the method within the context
of an other object, specify the URL of the related object within
If you need reference another object as part of your form-data: specifiy
its *path* but passing the object directly to value=".." really makes
no sense. Obtain an object-by-path within your code using the
restrictedTraverse() API. But for uploading data to your current
context object you don't have to define something like "doc"... please
to the "Zope Book 2.7 edition" - appearently you have a basic
misunderstanding how Zope works here.
