I can get SortOrder Value in Admin Backend with SortOrder in DataObjectManager array like this:

$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Mysite", new DataObjectManager(




			array('Thumb' => 'Thumb','Name' => 'Name','Url' => 'Url','Category'=>'Category','Languages'=>'Languages','Countries' => 'Countries','SortOrder' => 'SortOrder'),



I have no idea how to increment the value in this Page Model. How can i access SortOrder before addFieldToTab?

I added a function to the corresponding Data Object.

Like described in datamodel i have overwritten the getSortOder funct.

function getSortOrder() {
      // SortOrder is not working
      //return $this->SortOrder;


But i can not access the field SortOrder. With Name, like in the code it works.

i thought it could be perhaps


but don't work.

I have not defined SortOrder, this field is from Dataobjectmodel auto generated per _config.php


In Admin Backend first element shows nothing because SortOrder=0. That's why i like to override getSortOrder with - something like -

return ($this-SortOrder+1);
