    Problem with Using DropdownField in CMS Link to this post


    Trust me, it took me days to figure this out but if i have the headache on that, then someone else might probably be having same.

    But here is how it worked:

    In the
    static $db = array(

       'Issu' => "Enum('One, Two, Three','One')",


    and in the :

    function getCMSFields()
          $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
          $fields -> addFieldtoTab('Root.Content.Main', new DropdownField('Issu', 'Issue Type', Array('1'=>'One', '2'=>'Two', '3'=>'Three')));

          return $fields;

    Just replace the One, Two, and Three with you titles and you can also continue the array. Its quite simple.

    In your DropdownField constructor you should be using "$this->dbObject('Issue')->enumValues()" rather than the hard-coded array.
