Hello,

I have two dataobjects that are related manymany. In my case I have an event that is related to individuals. I am attempting to record which individuals are attending an event. I have created a ManyManyComplexTableField and when it loads it lists all the individuals in my database and allow me to click the checkbox and save them to the related event.

Is there anyway to allow my users to actively filter the results in the ManyManyComplexTableField individual list?

Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Don't you mean ManyManyDataObjectManager? If not, you're in the wrong place!

Very cool. It works rather well.

However, the table render does not look anything like the forum documents on the module. I am rendering it within the datamodel manager. Is there another ss page I should include or is this only made to render within an actual page instead of in the datamodel administrator within the administrator pages?

What do you mean "the forum documents on the module?" What is "datamodel manager?"

My question is what controls the layout of a hasmanydataobject in the model admin when calling it to an addtab field?

Please advise if I need to provide more detail.

Dude, I'm so lost. Nothing you're saying is making sense to me. Sorry.

Thanks for your patience as I try to explain this.

Nuts. I was going to attach a screenshot but cant'. I'll paste here. It very closely exactly like what is below. Notice Firstname and Last name are not columns like the example documents for data object manager, they are crammed together in a single column. I am trying to get this to display in a nice columar layout. But it is all squeezed together and does not appear to be using a theme.

Here's the code:
class Family extends DataObject {
...

function getCMSFields() {
$fields=parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->renamefield('Name', _t('Family.SURNAME'));
$fields->renamefield('City',_t('Family.CITY'));
$fields->renamefield('StateProvince',_t('Family.STATEPROVINCE'));
$fields->renamefield('Postalcode',_t('Family.POSTALCODE'));

$tablefield = new HasManyDataObjectManager(
$this,
'Individuals',
'Individual',
array(
'FirstName' => 'FirstName',
'LastName' => 'LastName'
),'getCMSFields_forPopup');

$tablefield->setAddTitle( 'An Individual' );
$fields->addFieldToTab( 'Root.Individuals', $tablefield );
return $fields;
}
...
}
