Hi All,

here's my code
download.php
<?php
class Download extends DataObject
{
   static $db = array (
      'Naam' => 'Text',
      'Omschrijving' => 'Text',
   );

   static $has_one = array (
      'Bijlage' => 'File',
      'DownloadPage' => 'DownloadPage'
   );

   public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
   {
      return new FieldSet(
         new TextField('Naam'),
         new TextareaField('Omschrijving'),
         new FileIFrameField('Bijlage')
      );
   }
}

?>

downloadpage.php
<?php
class DownloadPage extends Page
{
   static $has_many = array (
      'Bijlagen' => 'Download'
   );

   public function getCMSFields()
   {
      $f = parent::getCMSFields();
      $manager = new FileDataObjectManager(
         $this, // Controller
         'Bijlagen', // Source name
         'Download', // Source class
         'Bijlage', // File name on DataObject
         array(
            'Naam' => 'Name',
            'Omschrijving' => 'Description',
         ), // Headings
         'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
         // Filter clause
         // Sort clause
         // Join clause
      );
      
   
$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Downloads",$manager);
return $f;
   }
}
class DownloadPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

      function AllDownloads() {
      return $this->data()->Bijlagen();      
         
      }
   
   };

?>

downloadpage.ss
<div class="typography">
      <h2>$Title</h2>   
      $Content
      
   <% control allDownloads %>

   <a href="$Bijlage.Filename">$Bijlage.FileName - $Bijlage.Size</a>
   <p>$Omschrijving</p>
   <% end_control %>
</div>

Note: I can only use $Bijlage.Filename. When i use just $Bijlage, i get a server error

Hi Guy,

if you'd like to show the movie (flv) in an embedded player, you have to do a little more.

For embedding a movie you have to use a player as container for these movies.

E.g. [url]http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-flv-player/[/url]

Download the files an put them e.g in /themes/<your-theme>/swf/*

Untested Template Code:

<% require javascript(http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/swfobject/2.2/swfobject.js) %>

<div class="typography">
<h2>$Title</h2>
$Content

<% control allDownloads %>

<p id="container_$Pos">Please install the Flash Plugin</p>

<script type="text/javascript">
var flashvars = { file:'$Bijlage.Filename',autostart:'false' };
var params = { allowfullscreen:'true', allowscriptaccess:'always' };
var attributes = { id:'player_$Pos', name:'player_$Pos' };

swfobject.embedSWF('themes/<your-theme>/swf/player.swf','container_$Pos','480','270','9.0.115','false',
flashvars, params, attributes);
</script>
<% end_control %>
</div>

This example should only demonstrate the principle .....

If you cast your file as "FLV" or "MP3", then all you need is $YourFileObject.Player. It automatically includes all of that stuff above..

Hi UncleCheese,

I tried to adress the attachments (a jpg, pdf, mp3 and flv file) (Bijlage) in my download.ss file as $Bijlage.Player, but no luck, nothing shows. (except for the link, cfr. the next line) Here's my code for the dowload.ss files. Can you tell me what i'm doing wrong. I also noticed that the there's no video icon in the cms next to the flv-file. The icon that shows up is a kind of a blank paper.

<div class="typography">
      <h2>$Title</h2>   
      $Content
      
   <% control allDownloads %>
   $Bijlage.Player
   <a href="$Bijlage.Filename">$Bijlage.FileName - $Bijlage.Size</a>
   <p>$Omschrijving</p>
   <% end_control %>
</div>

Hope you guys can help me out and thanx for all the effort you put in this fantastic modulei

Hi UncleCheese

I have seen you post this a few times. What exactly do you mean and where should we cast?

You have to cast the File relation as FLV, not File..

$has_one = array (
'SomeFile' => 'FLV'
);

Yeah, but if you do that "SomeFile" cannot be say mp3
In your screencast you just use the type file and it handles both flv and mp3
