Hey guys,

I'm trying to use the 'Content' field on File because it's editable in Files & Images with DataObjectManager installed. Basically I want to use it as a caption field for images.

But I'm having trouble access that Content field because instance_get is overridden in File.php to remove the Content field.

Does anyone know how to easily access the Content field on File? $File->Content and $File->getField('Content') both fail.

-- OK so I worked out that the quickest way was to add an extension to the File class adding a Summary field.. worked a treat


Did you ever sort out how to deal with this problem, I am looking at doing exactly the same thing...

No I didn't work out how to access the Content attribute.

Instead I usually create a Photo object that has Title and Description fields and a has_one Image.
