seems like, at the moment, the dataobjectmanager is the best (and sometimes only) way to work properly on many_many-Relationships. My question (and I hope it is not that dumb that anyone notices, I'm a relative newbee) is:
Does the DataObjectManager also works with many_many_extraFields? How can these additional attributes to the connecting table be displayed/altered/etc. And despite from that: Is there an other chance to edit these fields? I've found this feature of extraFields nice and important but very few documented.
@sunnyboy -- I've attached a working example of a Resume upload form that is in use on a production site with the latest SWFUpload module. Let me know if there's anything that needs to be updated in the docs.
@amir -- I like the idea. I'll add a $canUpload parameter.
@henning - Can you explain what you mean by extraFields? Sounds interesting. Make sure you're using a ManyManyDataObjectManager for those relations.
I gave it a try: It basicly works very well. The relation table gets (beside an ID and fields to save the IDs of the two involved Records) further columns (in the above mentioned example, the table saving the Posts<->Categories Relationship gets a further column named "PrimeCategory" of type boolean).
Any chance we could create a forum folder for threads re Uncle Cheese's modules? This thread is so long that it is hard to quickly scan it to see if a particular topic/bug was already discussed. The Event Calendar Module thread is also very long.
