hi,

I have to much tabs at a DataObject in the backend, see attached image ...
How would you solve this? Just change some CSS or replace it with a dropdown (if so how)?

thx

function getCMSFields() {
   $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
   $fields->removeByName('TabNameHere');
   return $fields;
}

Ahhhh, my bad...

I am assuming this is a ModelAdmin EditForm... right?
if they are HasMany or ManyMany ComplexTableFields (scaffolded) then the option is to move them into something like a CheckBoxfieldSet but this means you can no longer get all of the functionality - just selection of the relevant items.

other than that - you can write a lot of custom code to add the fields to different tabs and handle the saving of the data to the different (related) objects.

or... maybe someone does have a better idea - as always interested to hear it...

yes ModelAdmin ... the most of the tabs handle only 1 object, I tried to share the fields of the object in logical parts ...

I try to reduce the tabs and merge some forms together ... but I'm also interessted in an easy solution.

*searching for the font-size of the tabs, but dont find it in the css files* :O)

thx
