Hi Christian,

Thanks for that. I believe I am indeed using grokcore.view 2.7.

Soo, if I understand the CHANGES.txt correctly, I have to add a 
__static_name__ attribute to all forms that use the grok.PageTemplateFile 
directive, pointing to the relevant library.

Thanks, that works actually! In case anyone else comes across this, my form 
declaration now looks like:-

from app_name import resource

class AddSQLDatabaseForm(grok.AddForm):
	form_fields = grok.AutoFields(ISQLDatabase)
	template = grok.PageTemplateFile("edit-form.pt")
	__static_name__ = resource.library
