Hi, this question might have a really obvious answer, but I can't quite figure out how to do it! How would I go about getting a boolean field to display as 'Yes' or 'No' in the DOM list, as opposed to '1' or <blank>? I have it setup as a CheckboxField in my popup.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, I would be most appreciative!

Hi Kyle,

I do it this way - on your dataobject class add a function to convert the value to Yes or No, then refer to the function instead of the DB field when defining the DOM or in your $summary_fields.

i.e.

class MyObject extends DataObject
{
	static $db = array (
		'Title' => 'Varchar(200)',
		'Approved' => 'Boolean'
	);

	static $summary_fields = array(
		'Title' => 'Title',
		'ApprovedNice' => 'Approved?'
	);
	
	//Generate Yes/No for DOM / Complex Table Field
	public function ApprovedNice() {
		return $this->Approved ? 'Yes' : 'No';
	}
}

Cheers

FYI, this is built in. You just do $YourField.Nice.

Doh! There's always an easier way in SilverStripe. Thanks for the tip Uncle Cheese. Still - can be useful in some situations, for instance I actually use that code to print out '***No*** Please review' to highlight records that need attention.
