    Hi Uncle Cheese,

    This is great although it would of been better if the relationship to the Employee Page was shown as well.

    Hi uncle cheese have followed your tutorial and it works fine apart from the DatePickerField which i used in the nested table popup, any reason why this would not show the calendar just a textbox? 2.4.5 with latest DOM.

    Really nice work Uncle Cheese! This is very slick!

    Any chance you could release the code for this demo?

      Hi, Dan,

      NestedDOM works just like any other DOM, only you put it in the getCMSFields() function for your DataObject. There’s really no trick to it. It’s smart enough to figure out that it’s in a parent DOM and not a page.

    Hi there unclecheese,
    first i want to thank you for your great modules!
    But i have one issue with several projects. I cant get the nested dom working. The fields for the inner DataObjects just dont pop up, they are shown in the first popup underneath it’s content, next to the save button.
    No matter what i tried and which project i was working at i had to use the complextablefield whenever i wanted to manage DataObjects with DataObjects in them.
    I’d really appreciate your help,
    kind regards, Stefan
