How to add a custom filter in modeladmin?




22 January 2014 at 5:29am Community Member, 90 Posts

I have got a class

class Product extends DataObject {
static $many_many = array('categories'=>'Category');


class Category extends DataObject {
static $belongs_many_many = array('categories'=>'Category' );
static $has_one = array('Parent' =>'Category');

I would like to filter products by sub-categories only, If I put

$searchable_fields = array('Categories.ID' )

in the Product class, i will have a dropdown box list all categories (including the Parent ones), which is messy
