Hi, I didn't find if this has been answered before so sorry it it has.

Is there a way to build DataObjects containing more than one Image or File?

What I want to build is a Project Object containing some Description, a Project Title, a Preview Picture, a normal Picture and a File (flv).

Code for the Project Object looks the following:

class ProjectObject extends DataObject{
static $db = array (
'Description' => 'Text',
'ProjectVideoWidth' => 'Text',
'ProjectVideoHeight' => 'Text',
);

static $has_one = array (
'PreviewProjectPicture' => 'Image',
'ProjectPicture' => 'Image',
'ProjectVideo' => 'File',
'ProjectImagePage' => 'ProjectImagePage'
);

public function getCMSFields_forPopup(){
return new FieldSet(
new TextareaField('Description'),
new ImageField('PreviewProjectPicture'),
new ImageField('ProjectPicture'),
new FileField('ProjectVideo'),
new TextField('ProjektVideoWidth'),
new TextField('ProjektVideoHeight')
);
}
}

This should be alright, but now I have no Idea, how to build the ProjectObjectPage.

class ProjectObjectPage extends Page{

static $has_many = array (
'ProjectObjects' => 'ProjectObject'
);

public function getCMSFields(){
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$manager = new DataObjectManager(
$this, // Controller
'ProjectImages', // Source name
'ProjectImage', // Source class
'PreviewProjectPicture', // File name on DataObject
'ProjectPicture', // File name on DataObject
'ProjectVideo', // File name on DataObject
array(
'Description' => 'Description',
'ProjectVideoWidth' => 'ProjectVideoWidth',
'ProjectVideoHeight' => 'ProjectVideoHeight'
), // Headings
'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
// Filter clause
// Sort clause
// Join clause
);

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Projects", $manager);
return $fields;
}
}

I think, this is crap, but how can I add more than on File to DataObjects?

@martimiz - I'm not exactly sure what you're looking for. Just a fancier ImageField? SWFUploadIFrameField should give you what you need. I'm using it on several of my projects.

@Andre - You can absolutely have multiple files linked to a DataObject, but you can't use a FileDataObjectManager for that. You have to use a straight DataObjectManager, which you're doing, but you're just cramming a bunch of extra arguments in there, so it's probably just erroring out.

I am sorry, I was so stupid, just take DataObjectManager instead of ImagaDataObjectManager.

class ProjectObjectPage extends Page{
static $has_many = array (
'ProjectObjects' => 'ProjectObject'
);
public function getCMSFields(){
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$manager = new DataObjectManager(
$this, // Controller
'ProjectImages', // Source name
'ProjectImage', // Source class
array(
'Description' => 'Description',
'ProjectVideoWidth' => 'ProjectVideoWidth',
'ProjectVideoHeight' => 'ProjectVideoHeight'
), // Headings
'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
// Filter clause
// Sort clause
// Join clause
);
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Projects", $manager);
return $fields;
}
}

Hey guys. I'm having a conflict with complex table field pop-up's in the security section of the CMS when Dataobject_manager is installed. Has anyone else had this issue yet?

Instead of the pop up the edit form is returned consuming the entire browser page.

So to replicate this, I just click the Security tab on any site that has DOM installed? 2.3.1? Browser? I'll try it out. Surprised this hasn't been reported yet.

Just click the security tab, then click edit on one of the groups.

I have a ton of other modules and custom work done, but the dataobject_manager folder is default download. I simply moved the dataobject_manager folder out of my root and retried the issue and it was fine.

I can't replicate it in Safari or Firefox. Anyone else?

@UncleCheese
I tried the SWFUploadIFrameField, but having some issues with it (maybe you could point me in the right direction):

- attach button greys out when you happen to click it before choosing a file
- treedropdown for existing files hangs om 'loading...'

(mozilla 3 win)

So I was thinking: why not have a field that has just a button that uses the popup from the ImageDataObjectManager to add/edit an image, and then maybe shows a thumbnail next to the button. It would keep the cms tabs nice and clean, and still use all extra's from your popup that I like so much, like title, alt and description - much more then the SWFUploadIFrameField does.

This would work nicely on pages that hold several images - think a book cover, an author photo, a company logo, that would be added separately, and not just as a series of images. Could it be done?

@vstrazz
I have the same configuration (2.3.1, XP Mozz 3.0.1) and it works fine for me...
[edit] I have the latest from the svn (142)
