    SortOrder increment before addFieldToTab Link to this post

    I can get SortOrder Value in Admin Backend with SortOrder in DataObjectManager array like this:

    $f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Mysite", new DataObjectManager(




             array('Thumb' => 'Thumb','Name' => 'Name','Url' => 'Url','Category'=>'Category','Languages'=>'Languages','Countries' => 'Countries','SortOrder' => 'SortOrder'),



    I have no idea how to increment the value in this Page Model. How can i access SortOrder before addFieldToTab?

    I added a function to the corresponding Data Object.

    Like described in datamodel http://doc.silverstripe.org/sapphire/en/topics/datamodel i have overwritten the getSortOder funct.

    function getSortOrder() {

    // SortOrder is not working
    //return $this->SortOrder;


    But i can not access the field SortOrder. With Name, like in the code it works.

    i thought it could be perhaps


    but don't work.

    I have not defined SortOrder, this field is from Dataobjectmodel auto generated per _config.php


    In Admin Backend first element shows nothing because SortOrder=0. That's why i like to override getSortOrder with - something like -

    return ($this-SortOrder+1);
