[Grok-dev] Referencing objects by id

1st, forgive my n00bishness. I'm on Grok for a net time of only a couple of days now. Anyway ..
Im trying to get my head around storing objects (Customers that is) based on customer id's. An url should look like this:
It was previously (working and) based on company name and used to look like this:
I use zope's interface and schema to work with the model and suppress the id field in forms with:
"form_fields = grok.AutoFields(Customer).omit('id')"
Because of this I have to calculate a new id before storing a new customer object. From a MVC perspective I think the 'get new id' code belongs in the model class but that's a different story.
The error I get wanting to set the value for id is this:
TypeError: 'Customer' object does not support item assignment
The snippet I use it in is this:
def handle_voeg_toe(self, **data):
customer = Customer()
values = list(self.context.values())
new_id = str(len(values) + 1)
# It breaks here!!!!
customer['id'] = new_id
self.context['id'] = customer
Changing/replacing the line in the snippet after the break point with this:
self.context[new_id] = customer
Seemingly works because I can use this:
But then the actual 'id' attribute is not filled.
If more code or information is needed to clearify I'll gladly post it, but I consider this email long already ... :-)
Any pointers are very welcome.
Thanx a lot!
