Hi All,

I can set labels on $searchable_fields() like

static $searchable_fields = array(
	'FirstName' => array(
		'title' => 'Label 4 FirstName',
		'field' => 'TextField',
'IsPaid' => 'Boolean'

as described in
But what if I want to set this for the Boolean value, too?
Since Silverstripe creates a three-value dropdown by default, I tried to set a DropdownField, which works, but I couldn't manage to get the values into it.

'IsPaid' => array (
	'title' => 'Title 4 paid',
	'field' => 'DropDownField',
	'source' => array('' => '(all)', '0' => 'no', '1' => 'yes' )
'IsPaid' => array (
	'title' => 'Title 4 paid',
	'field' => 'DropDownField',
	'field.source' => array('' => '(all)', '0' => 'no', '1' => 'yes' )

didn't work.

Any Hints, anyone? :)

Thx in advance
