Swaiba, need your (or anybody else )help again..

I'm trying to do this;

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.MedRecords", $fields->insertBefore(new LiteralField('NameFieldGroup'.'Patella','<div class="NameFieldGroup">'),'HD'); 
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.MedRecords", $fields->insertAfter(new LiteralField('NameFieldGroup'.'Patella','<div class="NameFieldGroup">'),'DNA'); 

Well...that doesn't work

My MedRecords are a different DataObject than the one i'm creating the Tab in. The 'Patella' , 'HD' and 'DNA' are fields in my MedRecords.

any ideas on this one ?

Hi Stefdv,

I think what you need is just:

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.MedRecords", new LiteralField('NameFieldGroup'.'Patella','<div class="NameFieldGroup">'),'HD');

Which will insert the field before the 'HD' field under MedRecords tab.

Hope that helps,
