Requirements

  • SilverStripe 3.1+

Installation & Documentation

  • Download and copy folder to SilverStripe root directory.
  • Run ?flush=all

By default the "add new" button is added to all detail forms. You can disable this functionality in your config.yml using

 GridFieldAddNewExtension:
   use_data_extension: false

If you instead prefer to add the button manually to a detail form use the addComponent function to add the GridFieldDetailFormAddNew component.

$config = new GridFieldConfig_Base();
$config->addComponent(new GridFieldDetailFormAddNew());

When working with one of the pre-configured GridFieldConfigs you must first remove the default GridFieldDetailForm component and then add the GridFieldDetailFormAddNew component.

$config = new GridFieldConfig_RecordEditor();
$config->removeComponentsByType('GridFieldDetailForm');
$config->addComponent(new GridFieldDetailFormAddNew());
