Hello World,

I'm building a site for a dogbreeder and all is going fine, but...

I manage my Dog in ModelAdmin ( DogAdmin)

Every dog has one Pedigree ( DataObject) and many Showresults ( DataObjects)

I've created a Tab for Pedigree and one for Showresults.

How do i 'tell' these tabs that they belong to the dog i'm working on?

Right now the user have to fill in, in each tab, to what dog the pedigree or showresult belongs. So i need some field in those two that will be filled as soon as i create a dog.

any help ?

This should all be done automatically - you shouldn't need to create the tabs - ModelAdmin will scaffold them if your database is setup correctly. Check that your "dog has_many Pedigree" is reciprocated with "Pedigree has_one dog". If this doesn't help - it might be best to post code to work out what is going on...

oh and make sure you've read all the docs on ModelAdmin (http://silverstripe.org/data-model-questions/show/15923#post299457) and on the DataModel (http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/topics/datamodel)

Thank u for your reply,

I understand that modeladmin scaffolds them, and that does work. The problem is that when i don't create tabs there is to much information when i open up a Dog ( that sounds nasty) . Everything is in one screen and i cannot scroll down. I tryed that with my first try ( called 'OwnPug' ) i post that below as first code.

When i do create tabs, it seems that the info on the tabs don't seem to be automaticaly linked to the Dog on the Main tab.

I post my code below, if you feel like going thru it.

Mops = Dog
Stamboom = Pedigree
Showresultaat = Showresults

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This is the code for my first try, i don't use this dataobject anymore. It's just to show what will come out if i use this with modeladmin, i don't think it's very client friendly) I use the FieldGroups to shorten the form.

Hi Stefdv,

When I use ModelAdmin and I want to change things I don't start with a completely new fieldset...

function getCMSFields() {
   //I start with...
   $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

   //then I'd create a tab if required
   $tab = $fields->findOrMakeTab('Root.Images');
   //and remove the current field and move it to the new tab...
   $fields->removeByName('ImageURL');
   $tab->push(new ImageField('ImageURL'));

   return $fields;
}

I also replace fields if I want to change them... I find it's much nice to use the fieldset provided than to create it from scratch each time... might this help?

Hi Swaiba,

"Might this help ?" Well absolutely, that's a nice solution ( so much to learn, guess i really need to read the docs ).

Still got the issue with the FieldGroup. With them i can place more fields on one line. For some ( the most ) fields i don't need the whole screen. Lets say for a textfield with varchar(10) i only need an input field of 10 char. not the whole screenwith.

And with the showresults) ...how do i only show the related showresults and not the whole list of all the showresults of all dogs?

TX again.

could you screen print and annotate to describe it?

Swaiba,

I have 3 screens attached.
Step 1 ; Here i choose the dog i need to edit.
Step 2 ; Here you see the Main Tab. As you can see the Fields are to big, but i'll get to that later.
Step 3; The 'Showresults'. I only need the results for the dog i selected in step 1. And when i add a result i need it to 'know' that it belongs to that dog.
