Hi all,

I know that you can customise the cms page tree using statics such as:

// tree customisation 
static $icon = "mysite/images/icons/my-pretty-icon";

Is it possible to make the icon dynamic - either using a function icon() or maybe setting it on an event (page saved, etc)?

Basically under the behaviour tab I want to have a checkbox that affects the icon.

Thanks a lot!

Barry

I have the same question as Keeny. Anyone know if this is possible?

You may be able to overload the default static using Object::set_static('PageType', 'icon', 'path/to/icon.png'); see the set static docs for more info. Not sure if it'll work but its worth a try.

using Object::set_static() partially works but it still search for a GIF file, e.g.

Object::set_static('news', 'icon', 'themes/mysite/icons/news.png');

results in

url("themes/mysite/icons/news.png-file.gif")

You dont need the file part:

Object::set_static('ErrorPage', 'icon', 'mysite/images/icons/error');

^^ thats right, but you end up using .gif icons anyway.

I posted a possible enhancement ticket to use .png icons: http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/6155

Please tell me what you think about it. Maybe there is still a better way to use .png icons ...

Cheers,
Christian

Christian that seems a reasonable solution, the extension shouldn't have been hard coded.
