DOM Summary Fields

I wondering if it's possible to display only a selection of my fields in the dataobjectmanager list view. I've tried using summary_fields and have tried the approach as suggested here but to no avail...


static $summary_fields = array(
'FieldName' => 'Column Name'

function summaryFields() {
return self::$summary_fields;

My main problem is that one of my fields for each item contains quite a lot of text content and so is pushing down each object in my list view in the backend. You can see a screen grab of my issue here, ideally I'd like to hide "Text" column in the listview but have it appear in pop-up.

Any help would really be appreciated.

Managed to solve this with an obvious solution.

Removed the Field from array of fields in the dataobjectmanager declaration:

new DataObjectManager(
   array('Name' => 'Name', 'Position' => 'Position', 'Location' => 'Location', 'Intro' => 'Intro'),

but left it in the getCMSFields_forPopup method.
