my structure in CMS:
Order DOM shows OrderItem - shows only OrderItems in active Order
OrderItem DOM shows ProcessStep - shows only ProcessSteps in active OrderItem

When I 'Add ProcessStep' I would like the OrderItemID field to be filled in automatically. currently i create a ProcessStep and when I return to the OrderItem DOM I have to select the checkbox to make the relationship (ie store OrderItemID in ProcessStep). checking the checkbox is a repetitive step since i should be able to indicate the proper OrderItemID at creation.

Is there a way I can tweak the 'Add ProcessStep' action to pass the ID?

I tried using onBeforeWrite in the ProcessStep but I dont know how to refer back to the active OrderItem to get its ID.
