I would like to put a list of data under the Datagridfield (which contains the searchresult of the model managed by the Modeladmin).

I can extend the ModelAdmin class, put an extra method in to get the datalist,

but then i have to go into framework/admin/template/Includes/ to add a line after


to get the data in. this works but it's not nice to update anything in the framework.

How do i have my own and where shall I put this file?

I put it under




but it doesn't work

I am not very familiar with ModelAdmin, but if you are extending the class anyway, then you could just add your additional data as a new FormField to the EditForm.
