    adding pageID to a HMCTF Link to this post


    i have written a module, that adds a HMCTF to the Page dataobject, so i can use the HMCTF in every object that extends Page. for this, i decorated the Page with DOD.

    now i would like to save the id of the active SiteTree object within the dataobject, so i can display only the dataobjects relevant to the site.

    and here i'm stuck.
    i was trying to add a TextField to the HMCTF with the id i get with $this->owner->ID, but it seems not to work.

    my (simplified) updateCMSFields function in the decorator looks like:

    public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet &$fields) {
    $tableField = new HasManyComplexTableField(
    "items", // name of the relation
    "DataObject", // my extension of the DataObject
    "field1" => "field1",

    can i somehow "inject" a value to the FieldSet returned by getCMSFields_forPopup??

    Re: adding pageID to a HMCTF Link to this post

    update: writing this entry i had an idea, that was the solution....

    instead of: "getCMSFields_forPopup" in the updateCMSFields() function, i just created a new FieldSet with the extrax data i neaded...
