hello community,

i began working with silverstripe a week ago and i've some questions of course.
i tried the irc-channel. problems seems i am from germany and when i ask my questions, everybody in nz seems to sleep. ;)
this is why i post here.

here is my first questions:

does anybody know a secure way to remove a tab from the cmsfields?
removeByName and removeFieldFromTab doesn't work as supposed if you change the interface language.

e.g.
if you try to remove the report tab:
$fields->removeFieldsFromTab('Root','Reports')

it works, if your interface language is english, but if you switch to german the tab isn't removed. to remove the tab from german interface you will have to remove it using the german name of the tab 'Berichte'.

that is not, what you expect.

regards,

martin

my fault... sorry for the 'bug' in the title.

the solution is:
$fields->removeByName(_t('SiteTree.TAB<TABTODELETE>'))

the _t()-function does the translation for you. see http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=i18n&s=translate
