Very soon I'll be adding member properties $image_class, and $album_class to the ImageGallery module, which will make this a lot easier. For now you'll have to use a DataObjectDecorator for that.
i don't get it.
i made a new DataObjectDecorator
class DODImageGalleryAlbum extends DataObjectDecorator
public function FormattedCoverImage()
in my _config.php i added:
but it doesn't work. what is wrong?
First, you should use DataObject::add_extension, since ImageGalleryAlbum is a DataObject. Second, I don't know that you can overload methods in a decorator. You'll probably have to call that function something different, like "MyFormattedCoverImage" and call it that way on the template.
$this->CoverImage() won't work in a decorator, remember. You'll have to use $this->owner->CoverImage().
thanks a lot, that did the trick :)
The ability to use custom classes has been added to the ImageGallery. See the post in the DataObjectManager forum.
