Hi Guys,

Trying to add a new feature into the model admin. We have a site that lists contacts in a model admin extension.

What we want to be able to do is add a button to model admin that will pass the filtered list of contacts to a function that will allow the site admin to add a message and push the contact phone numbers and message out to an SMS API.

I can figure out how to do this with SS2.4 but 'm a bit lost with doing this in SS3.

Any ideas?

How you did it with 2.4 should roughly work with 3.0. You might want to look at writing a DataExtension instance for ModelAdmin and define updateEditForm. Pushing a new FormAction to the Form.

Thanks Willr.

pretty much the way these guys managed it

I have tried this method and hit the never ending error chain.

All I really need pointers with is adding the button and where to define the function. The function itself is relatively easy.

Any help would be great.
