Hi,

Has anyone come across this? When I add a TreeDropdownField control to CMS popup the SimpleHTMLEditorField disappears. Removing the TreeDowndownField brings it back. Also, doesn't matter what order I add the fields.

Thanks,
J

I have small PHP class for a news item:

class NewsItem extends DataObject
{
static $db = array
(
'Heading_' => 'Varchar(100)',
'Body_' => 'HTMLText'
);
static $has_one = array
(
'Page_' => 'HomePage',
'Link_' => 'SiteTree'
);
function getCMSFields_forPopup()
{
global $simplehtml_default_controls; // just removes some buttons

return new FieldSet(new TextField('Heading_', 'Heading'),
new SimpleHTMLEditorField('Body_', 'News', $simplehtml_default_controls),
new TreeDropdownField('Link_ID', 'Link', 'SiteTree'));
}
}

Use SimpleTreeDropdownField.

Thanks Uncle Cheese! I'll give that a go. I just posted a comment on your site Left and Main about this thread.

Yep, that did the trick.
