[Zope3-Users] adding indexes in a __init__ method

Hi Lorenzo,

The key reference adapter can only get a key reference **after** the
object is added to the database (because it uses _p_oid).

The problem could be fixed with a subscriber to IObjectAddedEvent::

  def FilterableContainerInitializationHandler(object, event):
      """Initialize container after its ObjectAddedEvent."""

	# I have checks here too (maybe unecessary)
	if not IObjectAddedEvent.providedBy(event):
	if not IFilterableContainer.providedBy(object):
      	# whatever needs to be done
	# self._catalog ...

This handler is configured::

  <!-- initialization handler -->

Hope that helps.

Best regards,
