  • a page + optional text-anchor from the site tree
  • a file from the assets dir
  • an e-mail address (mailto link)
  • define a custom URL to link to
  • or enter a shortcode

Usage

use Restruct\SilverStripe\ORM\FieldType\NamedLinkField;
use Restruct\SilverStripe\Forms\NamedLinkFormField;

...

private static $db = array(
    'NextAction' => 'NamedLinkField',
);

...

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

    $fields->insertBefore(
        "Content",
        NamedLinkFormField::create('ActionButton')
    );

    return $fields;
}
