Requirements

  • SilverStripe 3.1.0+

Installation

  • Download the module from here https://github.com/webbuilders-group/silverstripe-gridfielditemtype/archive/master.zip
  • Extract the downloaded archive into your site root so that the destination folder is called GridFieldItemType, opening the extracted folder should contain _config.php in the root along with other files/folders
  • Run dev/build?flush=all to regenerate the manifest
  • Upon entering the cms and using GridFieldItemType components for the first time you make need to add ?flush=all to the end of the address to force the templates to regenerate

Usage

If you are working with one of the pre-configured GridFieldConfigs you must first remove the default GridFieldDetailForm and GridFieldAddNewButton components replacing them with ItemTypeDetailForm and AddNewItemTypeButton respectively

$config=GridFieldConfig_RecordEditor::create(10);
$config->removeComponentsByType('GridFieldAddNewButton');
$config->removeComponentsByType('GridFieldDetailForm');
$config->addComponent(new AddNewItemTypeButton($yourOptionsMap, 'buttons-before-left'));
$config->addComponent(new ItemTypeDetailForm());

If you are using the base GridField config you need to add both the AddNewItemTypeButton and ItemTypeDetailForm to your config

$config=GridFieldConfig_Base::create(10);
$config->addComponent(new AddNewItemTypeButton($yourOptionsMap, 'buttons-before-left'));
$config->addComponent(new ItemTypeDetailForm());

Note: All options in the type dropdown must be decendents of the model class.
