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;
   
   }
