Data Manager customization: getTopRightButtonsForObject

The getTopRightButtonsForObject customization allows you to completely override the set of buttons that appears at the top right hand side of the record listing screen. It must return an array of structs that describe the buttons to display and is provided the objectName in the args struct.

Note, if you simply want to add, or tweak, the top right buttons, you may wish to use Data Manager customization: extraTopRightButtonsForObject.

For example:

// /application/handlers/admin/datamanager/blog.cfc

component {

	private array function getTopRightButtonsForObject( event, rc, prc, args={} ) {
		var actions    = [];
		var objectName = args.objectName ?: "";

			  link      = event.buildAdminLink( objectName=objectName, operation="reports" )
			, btnClass  = "btn-default"
			, iconClass = "fa-bar-chart"
			, globalKey = "r"
			, title     = translateResource( "" )
		} );

		return actions;
