Thanks for the response, Werner.
I figured out the problem: the "init, body, fin form" is actually a
specific format that the generated method must be in in order for
BoaConstructor to interpret it correctly.
The format is something like:
def _init_coll_sizername_Items(self, parent):
# generated method, do not edit
*** the comment and/or the newline between the comment and the function
body are important ***
