Hi

Stupid question - what is the easiest way to show a Boolean Value as YES / NO rather than 1 or 0 in a Complex Table Field????

Thank you

I'd use casting... like this...

class MyObject extends DataObject 
{ 
   static $db = array( 
      'MyBool'          => 'Boolean', 
   ); 
   public static $summary_fields = array ( 
      'MyBoolText'   => 'YesNo' 
   ); 
   static $casting = array( 
      'MyBoolText' => 'Text', 
   ); 
   public function MyBoolText(){
      return $this->MyBool ? 'Yes' : 'No'; 
  } 
}

I think it's possible to use $SomeField.Nice

Yes, you are probably right.

I think you need to use this:

table = ComplexTableField....

		$table->setFieldCasting(array(
			'MyBooleanField' => 'Boolean->Nice',
			'Total' => 'Currency->Nice'
		));

ok, so the question then is, how can we set these formatting rules for the summary_fields....

I think this will work...

static $db = array(
     'myBool' => 'Boolean'
);

static $summary_fields = array(
     'myBool'
);

public function myBool(){
      return ($this->myBool==true ? 'Yes':'No');
}

It should then show Yes/No instead of 1/0.

Nice() will work on summary fields as well.

private static $db = array(
  'myBool' => 'Boolean'
);

private static $summary_fields = array(
  'myBool.Nice' => 'My boolean value'
);
