Hey guys,

I've possibly confused myself here, but I'd love some help.

I've created a couple custom form field types for a website, and these are being included both in a page type and in a model admin instance. It works just fine in the page type situation, but when it comes to the model admin, it doesn't include the javascript it requires. Is there a reason for this, or a step I'm missing?

Cheers in advance
