I have a DataObject that has a $many_many relationship to other DataObjects. I want to just show a list of the objects but if I use a ComplexTableField I get a list of all the Objects of the second class instead of just the ones in that are related to the first object. I would use a ManyManyComplexTableField but I don't want to display any checkboxes as this table is not for editing the relations just displaying a list of the objects that are already related. I know that I can remove the edit permissions from the ManyManyComplexTableField

What kind of TableField should I use to just display a nice list of related objects.


I found a solution. I can use setCustomeSourceItems to give the ComplexTableField a DataObjectSet or ComponentSet.

Hi Micah,

I am dealing with the same problem here.

Can you please tell me how did you create that dataobjectset for setCustomSourceItems() ?
