Hi!

As $Locale.Nice, I need another cast, $Locale.NiceShort

How to add another cast to $Locale for template?

Thanks.

Regards,
Jose A.

I don't think you can easily extend DBLocale for this, since it is used by Translatable directly. .So maybe the easiest way is to create a function in the page controler, that manipulates the locale? Then call that from the template...

Hi martimiz!

I've been able to find the solution.
SilverStripe is wonderful. It's a pity that he lacks a better documentation.
I put it here in case someone needs it.

class DBLocaleExtension extends Extension {
function NiceShort() {
return i18n::get_language_name(i18n::get_lang_from_locale($this->owner->value));
   }
}

In _config.php:

Object::add_extension('DBLocale', 'DBLocaleExtension');
