Hello Andrew,

thanks for your reply.

That's true! And it's nor supposed to be. It's only a temporary Object that's being destroyed
after the method in which it's created has finished processing.

I wouldn't like to do that either, because I don't want that object to persist.

Probably I just do things in the wrong way. What I wnat to do is:

In the temporary object:

   em = 'File %s does not exist' % file
   return REQUEST.RESPONSE.redirect(self.manage_editSettings(REQUEST), em)

the calling Object then would pass it to the browser ...

... in order to do some exception handling.

is there an other way to redirect to the settigs Form when an error occurs in this nonpersistent object?

Greetings Roman
