Hi,

I need to add a new tab to a Page (Main, Behavior, Todo, ...) but I don't want to add it to the end but insert it between "Main" and "Behavior".
Is there a insertFieldToTab instead of addFieldToTab or something else to custom re-sort the tab list?

Thanks in advance,
CM

Hmm off the top of my head and a quick look I can't see anything. In 2.4 I can see a changeFieldOrder() function on FieldSet which may be what your looking for.

Not completely sure if these will work but I think they may $fields->insertAfter(), $fields->insertBefore(). The tabs in the CMS are standard form fields so you might be able to move them round using those.

If you have any luck would like to hear what worked.

Have tried various options but suggestions don't seem to be working (unfortunately).

Hey,

it's as easy as one would guess - but i've searched for it like hours. Here is the solution:

First create a new Tab:

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content", new Tab("Images"), "Metadata");

and then add whatever you want to your Tab:

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Images", new Textfield("Test));

Hope it helps,
