Module for SilverStripe 4 allowing to add custom actions for DataObjects to the GridFieldDetailForm.


composer require level51/silverstripe-data-object-actions


namespace My\Awesome\Project;

use Level51\DataObjectActions\DataObjectActionProvider;
use Level51\DataObjectActions\DataObjectAction;
use SilverStripe\Forms\FieldList;
use SilverStripe\ORM\DataObject;

// Implement DataObjectActionProvider interface on your DataObject
class MyDataObject extends DataObject implements DataObjectActionProvider {

  // Return a field list containing all custom actions, each one of type DataObjectAction or DataObjectLink
  public function getCustomActions() {
    return FieldList::create(
        DataObjectAction::create('myCustomAction', 'My Custom Action')
          ->addExtraClass('btn-outline-primary font-icon-rocket')
        DataObjectLink::create('externalLink', 'External Link', 'https://lvl51.de')
        	->addExtraClass('btn-outline-dark font-icon-external-link')
  // Implement the handler method(s)
  public function myCustomAction($data, $form) {
    // Do stuff, e.g. set a property
    // Do NOT call $this->write(), this will be done automatically
    // throw a new \SilverStripe\ORM\ValidationResult in case something failed
    // Optionally return a success message
    return 'Success message';
