Hi Everyone

I'm pretty new on ModelAdmin, but it's up and running and really great. However, instead of having this boring message: " Welcome to SilverStripe CMS. Please choose one of the entries in the left pane", I would like to show a list in the right pane based on the data in my ModelAdmin.

These are my files:

<?php
class RegionsAdmin extends ModelAdmin {
   protected static $managed_models = array(
      'Region'   
   );
   static $url_segment = 'regioner'; // will be linked as /admin/mycrm
   static $menu_title = 'Regions';
}
?>

<?php
class Region extends DataObject {
   static $db = array(
      'Navn' => 'Text',
      'Hovedstad' => 'Text',
      'Areal' => 'Text',
      'Indbyggere' => 'Text',
      'Vine' => 'Text'
   );
   static $searchable_fields = array(
      'Navn',
      'Hovedstad',
      'Areal',
      'Indbyggere',
      'Vine'
   );
   static $summary_fields = array(
      'Navn',
      'Hovedstad',
      'Vine'
   );
   function getCMSFields() {
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      
      return $fields;
      }
   }
?>

But how do I create a list based on my Regions class?

You can overload the right template by adding a new Layout template called RegionAdmin_right.ss (see ModelAdmin_right.ss for clues on the necessary markup). You can then extend your RegionAdmin class the same way you would with any other template+controller combination to fetch a DataObjectSet and display it through a <% control %> in the template. Specifically for performing a search by default in ModelAdmin, please follow this ticket: http://open.silverstripe.com/ticket/3693

Hi Ingo

Did this feature about performing a search by default ever get implemented? If so, how do I get a search click by deafult?

The ticket I've referenced in the post you've answered is still open, right? ;)

Well, I tried, but nothing really happend. Should the

$default_search = true

just work?

Anyone know how to get the "search by default" thing to work?

You can do it with JavaScript. For instance for a ModelAdmin for a 'Product' DataObject:
