hi again,

I'm using model admin and now can insert rows in the backend. I defined also this field:

"Geburtsdatum" => "Date"

im my $db array.

the backend form ask me for this field with a simple input field.

but in the frontend I replace the field:

$geburtsdatum = new CompositeDateField(
	'Geburtstag',
	'Geburtstag (Tag, Monat, Jahr)','','1910-2009'
);
		
$fields->replaceField('Geburtsdatum',$geburtsdatum);

so I have a better input format (3 dropdowns).

the problem now is, the date dont't loads ($form->loadDataFrom) into the 3 dropdown fields
and I also can't update the date from the frontend form.

what could be the problem here?

thx
daniel

hi sam,

I extend the Member class and put it in the getFrontendFields function:

            public function getFrontendFields() {
		$fields = $this->scaffoldFormFields(array(
			'restrictFields' => array(
				'Anrede',
				'FirstName',
				'Surname',
				'Ort',
				'Email',
				'Geburtsdatum',
			),
			'fieldClasses' => array(
				'Email' => 'EmailField',
			)
		));
		
		$fields->changeFieldOrder(array(
			'Anrede',
			'FirstName',
			'Surname',
			'Ort',
			'Email',
			'Geburtsdatum'
		));
		
		$geburtsdatum = new CompositeDateField(
			'Geburtstag',
			'Geburtstag (Tag, Monat, Jahr)','','1910-2009'
		);
		
		$fields->replaceField('Geburtsdatum',$geburtsdatum);
		
		return $fields;
	
	}
