To work with Silverstripe, you need to be kiinda' comfortable with OO and MVC patterns ...

I will try to take a better look at the tutorials.... and OO and MVC. Thanks a lot for your patience

<?php
class Blabla extends Page {

   public static $db = array( 
'Companies' => 'Text' 
   );

function getCMSFields() { 
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();    
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Companies', new OptionsetField('Companies', '', $DataObjectSet->toDropDownMap('id','name')));

return $fields;

}

}

class Blabla_Controller extends Page_Controller { 
    
   public function init() { 
      parent::init(); 
   } 
 ?>

flushing dies (no error but nothing after GhostPage)

Yeah.. it isn't working code... Just a quick example to get the gist of it ...

But other than a Curly bracket and some other source data ... it should work ...

OK, I almost got it

<?php
class TestPage extends Page {
        static $db = array(
                "Method" => 'Text'
        );
        function getCMSFields() {
                $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
                $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new DropdownField("Method", "Select Method", array(
                        'First','Second'
                )));
                return $fields;
        }
}

class TestPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
}
?>

It stores, however, numerical values 0,1 instead of labels First, Second.

Yeah..

change :

array(
'First','Second'
); 

into something like

array(
'Key'=>'value',
'Key'=>'value'
);

and it will store your key..

Thanks! This works (on the contrary to recommended on the tutorial page to store PageColor). So finally working code (in case someone else needs it):

<?php 
class TestPage extends Page { 
static $db = array( 
"Method" => 'Text' 
); 
function getCMSFields() { 
$fields = parent::getCMSFields(); 
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new DropdownField("Method", "Select Method", array( 
'First'=>'First Method',
'Second' =>'Second Method'
))); 
return $fields; 
} 
}

class TestPage_Controller extends Page_Controller { 
} 
?>
