Hi

Does anyone know how to set default values for the site config fields ... similar to:

static $defaults = array (...);

for DataObjects?

I tried using static $defaults in my SiteConfig extension but the values didn't get set.

class CustomSiteConfig extends DataObjectDecorator {


    /**
     * Defines the additional site configuration fields
     *
     * @return array
     */
    function extraStatics() {
        return array(
            'db' => array(
                'IsDisplayTestAskUs' => 'Boolean'
                , 'IsDisplayFooterHoncode' => 'Boolean'
            ),
    }


    /**
     * Displays the edit fields in the CMS
     *
     * @param FieldSet $fields
     */
    public function updateCMSFields( $fields ) {
         $fields->addFieldToTab( 'Root.Main', new CheckboxField( 'IsDisplayTestAskUs', 'Display Test Ask Us') );
         $fields->addFieldToTab( 'Root.Main', new CheckboxField( 'IsDisplayFooterHoncode', 'Display Footer HON code') );
    }


    // not sure if this will work with SiteConfig fields
    static $defaults = array (
        'IsDisplayTestAskUs' => true
        , 'IsDisplayFooterHoncode' => true
    );
}

Thanks!

Because you are dealing with an extension (i.e the SiteConfig::$defaults won't call your static) you need to use the extension class extraStatics (like you have) and include the defaults there.

function extraStatics() { 
return array( 
'db' => array( 
'IsDisplayTestAskUs' => 'Boolean' , 
'IsDisplayFooterHoncode' => 'Boolean' 
),
'defaults' => array(
'IsDisplayTestAskUs' => true
)); 
}

Thanks Willr! That did the trick.
