Guys

Please see attached, I have a model VehicleType

<?php
class VehicleType extends DataObject
{
static $db = array (
'VehicleTypeName' => 'Varchar(255)',
'VehicleRegRequired' => 'Boolean'
);

static $has_one = array(
);

static $has_many = array(
'Tariffs' => 'Tariff'
);

static $searchable_fields = array(
'VehicleTypeName',
'VehicleRegRequired'
);

static $summary_fields = array(
'VehicleTypeName',
'VehicleRegRequired'
);

}

When I create a new Vehicle type in admin it says "Saved #1". I want to to say "Saved "Car"" instead. Is this possible?

Thanks

You should be able to do it like this:

public function getTitle() {
   return $this->VehicleTypeName;
}
