I currently have a DataObject "enhancements"

For searchable fields I have:

static $searchable_fields = array(
'Requester' => 'Requester',
'Title' => 'Title',

I want to create a pulldown for a Status field that has options of Active, Pending, Completed inside my search area ModelAdmin. I can get to work as a text field, but not a pulldown

I've searched the forums and all I can find is that ModelAdmin will create pulldowns automatically in the search area for fields from related objects like:

static $searchable_fields = array(
'ArticleTypeID' =>array( 'title' => 'Article Type' )

I've also stumbled onto this example:

static $searchable_fields = array(
"Organisation.ZipCode" => array(
"field" => "TextField",
"filter" => "PartialMatchFilter",
"title" => 'Organisation ZIP'

If I modifiy it to fit my example... changing Organisation.ZipCode to Status and TextField to Pulldown, I do get a pulldown, but it's blank.

Any help would be appreciated.

as a last resort you can always manipulate the fields as you want with...

	public function scaffoldSearchFields() {
		$fields = parent::scaffoldSearchFields();
		//do stuff with $fields

		return $fields;
