I've got a custom tab in my CMS for 'orders' from a shop

class OrderModelAdmin extends ModelAdmin {
public static $managed_models = array('Order');
static $url_segment = 'Orders';
static $menu_title = 'Orders';

this presents me with a screen with a search area on the left, and then results on the right.
I'd like to use the Data Object Manager on the right hand side instead of the standard list it gives me

Any ideas? - examples - or where I could find more documentation?
