@drye - I think since SimpleTreeDropdownField is an subclass of DropdownField, you should be able to just do $field->setEmptyString('Foo');

Hi UncleCheese,

I'm trying out dataObjectManager r133 - and I love it! Now I wanted to do some translation. Could it be that the (en_US) language file is empty? I could try and translate the german version, but if you still got it hanging 'round somewhere...

There should be a deDE3.php file in the lang folder, no? Not sure what happened to the en_US file. I've replaced it. Do an SVN update.

Hi UncleCheeze!!

The error happens at line 513:

509: $file->write();
511: $obj->$idxfield = $file->ID;
512: //die ("lowerbound");
513: $ownerID = $_POST['parentIDName'];
514: die ("upperbound");
515: $obj->$ownerID = $_POST['controllerID'];

It's wierd no?

Hope this will help!

Are you sure you're on the latest SVN of dataobject_manager and swfupload? That looks like a bug I resolved a while ago.

im new in SS and i feel stupid in fundamental things :(

i added many images into a page, i know how to call them in But i need to show only 1st image on ->

im using

<% if ImageAtts %>
                <% control ImageAtts %>
                    <% if First %>
                        <a href="$Link" title="$Title">$ImageAtt.SetWidth(176)</a>
                    <% end_if %>
                <% end_control %>
            <% end_if %>

.. and it outputs only empty anchor.

if i remove <% if First %> all images are shown.

your posted code should work, tried it in 2.3.1
could you post your corresponding page class/controller code?

found another inconsistency, not sure though wheter this one is dataobjectmanger - related:
whenever i duplicate a page in cms, all related dataobjects (managed in a dataobjectmanager) are gone for the duplicate.
haven't checked using a regular ctf, so might be a silverstripe-problem?

btw: considerable feedback (317 posts by now!) to this module makes clear it requires it's own forum. should i send an email to silverstripe-staff?
