GenericViews - Extend CollectionController

Go to End

Hello all,

I'm using GenericViews for basic CRUD on two datatypes - Book and Chapter. What I want to have are custom functions for the various actions on each datatype e.g. add, edit, view etc.

I can handle the display part of it by creating .ss files such as and so on. That bit works fine. What I can't seem to do is override CollectionController.

Initially tried adding a controller class in Chapter.php but that is extending Dataobject and doesn't seem to do anything. Also tried creating a separate file called ChapterController and trying from there but that also doesn't seem to be working.

I think I could probably distinguish between the datatypes I want in the add() and addForm() functions in CollectionController itself but that doesn't seem like the smart way to do it at all.

Anyone else had a similar problem or have any advice?

Any help very much appreciated.
