Relation between Dataobjects - missing "add link" in popup

Hello out there,

I have the following question:

I have 3 classes
One Page called “Saison”
Two DataObject called “Spiel” and “Punkt”

The relations are:
One “Saison” has_many “Spiel”
One “Spiel” has one “Saison”

One “Spiel “ has many “Punkt”
One “Punkt” has one “Spiel”

I want to add “Spiel” and “Punkt” via the CMS. I added a ComplexTableField to “Saison” to edit the “Spiel” records. This works fine I can create, edit and delete “Spiel” records.

If I click on one of these “Spiel” records a Popup-appears with two tabs  “Main” and “Punkt” in Main I can edit the “Spiel” Record.
In the Tab “Punkt” I can just see the existing “Punkt” records.
Is there a possibility to add new “Punkt” records in this Tab?

This would be a very nice solution

See the attachment for a screenshot

possibly need to make the CTF yourself... something like...

$cos = $this->Spiel();
$ctf= new HasManyComplexTableField($this,'Punkt','Punkt',null,null,'ID IN ('.implode(',',$cos->getIdList()).')');
$ctf->Markable = false;
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.NewPunkt", $ctf);

thanks for the quick reply,

one question on your code:

what is $cos = $this->Spiel() doing ?
there is no "Spiel()" function in this class...

I tried this code without the $cos variable and there is still no "add" link in the TableField :(

I just read the permission-array by $ar = $ctf->getPermissions(); the permissions are set like in your code..

>> what is $cos = $this->Spiel() doing ?

when you define a relationship like has_one or has_many (many_many is different I think) you can use the relationshipname as a function to return the componet/componetset (like a dataobjectset but a couple more functions).

sorry I can't help more - perhaps if you made your code into minimum required to reproduce the issue...

thanks for you reply, sure you can have a look on the code this isn´t top secrect project for the NASA :) but I just copied you code

now it´s getting tricky

I just looked on the code of the dialog, there you will find the add button, but you can´t see the button

here is a little snippet from the code:

<td colspan="1">
               <input id="ComplexTableField_Popup_DetailForm_Strafe_PopupHeight" value="390" disabled="disabled" type="hidden">
               <input id="ComplexTableField_Popup_DetailForm_Strafe_PopupWidth" value="560" disabled="disabled" type="hidden">

               <a style="display: none;" class="popuplink addlink" href="admin/EditForm/field/Spiel/item/1/DetailForm/field/Strafe/add?SecurityID=5d98310200969de2002bd585b34f2e0f627f5548&amp;SecurityID=5d98310200969de2002bd585b34f2e0f627f5548" alt="add"><img src="cms/images/add.gif" alt="%s hinzufügen">
                  &lt;% sprintf(_t('ADDITEM', 'Add %s', PR_MEDIUM, 'Add [name]'),Strafe) %&gt;
