How do I go about adding a button to the backend of the CMS?
I can display the button where I want using:
public function getCMSFields()
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
FormAction::create('doAction', 'Action button')
public function doAction()
However, doAction does nothing when the button is clicked.
I've seen one example of how to put a button on the main action bar (Next to save/publish) but thats not what I'm trying to do.
Looking at the only documentation page I can find, do I need to do something within
public function getCMSActions()
$actions = parent::getCMSActions();
I can't find any clear documentation on how to handle the button action.
