Developer Usage

Directly inn a ModelAdmin

The easiest way to use this module is to add PreviewableModelAdminExtension as an extension for your ModelAdmin subclass. By default this will add a preview button to the gridfield for all tabs that have CMSPreviewable models.

    - GuySartorelli\GridFieldPreview\PreviewableModelAdminExtension

You can also configure this to only add the component for specific model classes:

    - GuySartorelli\GridFieldPreview\PreviewableModelAdminExtension
    - MyApp\Model\MyPreviewableModel

In literally any other GridField

You can add the GridFieldPreviewButton GridField component to literally any GridField, even one that belongs to a DataObject which has its own preview!

use GuySartorelli\GridFieldPreview\GridFieldPreviewButton;
use SilverStripe\Forms\GridField\GridField;
use SilverStripe\Forms\GridField\GridFieldConfig_RecordViewer;


    public function getCMSFields()
        $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

        $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', GridField::create(
            'Something Previewable',
            $config = GridFieldConfig_RecordViewer::create()

        // Here's the important part - add the GridFieldPreviewButton component!

        return $fields;
