Hi all,

i have some stupid Problem using an Enum field.

   static $db = array(
      'MultimediaGalerieDummy' => 'Varchar(1)',
      'GalerieTyp' => "Enum('Popup, Slider', 'Popup')",
      'VorschauTyp' => "Enum('Kompakt, Detail', 'Kompakt')",
   );

.....
   public function doGalerieOptionsForm($data, Form $form) {
      /* Werte setzen */
      $this->GalerieTyp = $data["GalerieTyp"];
      $this->VorschauTyp = $data["VorschauTyp"];

      $this->write();
      $this->doPublish();
....

The values become not saved. Why?

Maby you missed some quotation marks:

'GalerieTyp' => "Enum('Popup', 'Slider', 'Popup')",
'VorschauTyp' => "Enum('Kompakt', 'Detail', 'Kompakt')

Hi,

I disagree I just tried your method baba-papa for an enum that works perfectly well and got an error...

      'Sevirty' => "Enum('High,Medium,Low','Medium')",//original
      'SevirtyTwo' => "Enum('High','Medium','Low','Medium')",//bab-papa

"The default value 'Medium' does not match any item in the enumeration"

(and yes removing 'SevirtyTwo' makes it all work fine)

I'd say your problem is elsewhere, stefant42, maybe you have a onBeforeWrite, validator or something else?
