    FDOM $allowUploadFolderSelection question Link to this post

    I was looking for a way to disable the File Selection in FDOM. I can see that there is

    protected $allowUploadFolderSelection = true;


    public function allowUploadFolderSelection()
       $this->allowUploadFolderSelection = true;

    However there is not way aside from setting $allowUploadFolderSelection = false; to disable the Folder Selection interface. It would seem that at least on a per instance basis there is no way to disable the Folder Selection on FDOM or IDOM. Of course there may be something I am missing here but shouldn't the function be

    public function disableUploadFolderSelection() {
       $this->allowUploadFolderSelection = falsel;

    This seems to work for me:

       function getCMSFields() {
          $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
          // Slideshow
          $manager = new ImageDataObjectManager(
             $this,             // Controller
             'Slideshow',       // Source name
             'SlideshowImage',    // Source class
             'Attachment',       // File name on DataObject
             array(             // Headings
             'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
             // Filter clause
             // Sort clause
             // Join clause

          $manager->allowUploadFolderSelection = false;
          $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Slideshow", $manager);

          return $fields;
