Hello,

I would like to know if it's possible to override a method with an Extension Class ?

I would like to change the return value of a method. This method is a cms class (AssetAdmin::getTreeAsUL() exactly).
Thanks,

This may help

It overrides the standard login procedure. It should at least give you start

Thanks.

He use object::useCustomClass() method in this tutorial to completely replace the original class. I would like to experiment another way before this solution... But i think we can't do it (overriding a method in a core class) without useCustomClass...

i try the useCustomClass() solution but it doesn't work...

I read [url=http://www.silverstripe.org/data-model-questions/show/251824?start=0#post251985]this[/url] in the Forum. I think it's not possible to replace AssetAdmin class...
