I like to add gender (or a salutation) to the customer's address. While the gender already for a customer exists, I thought I can simply reuse it but somehow I get stuck at the source model which should populate the values for the gender dropdown.
Problem: The field "Gender" appears as drop-down in my customer address section in the admin backend but has no options which I can choose.
So here a summary of what I did. Basically, I followed the steps at these 2 pages:
But I didn't extend the model for the customer's address, because I think it is not necessary?
$setup = new Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Setup('core_setup'); $setup->addAttribute('customer_address', 'gender', array( 'type' => 'int', 'input' => 'select', 'label' => 'Gender', 'global' => 1, 'visible' => 1, 'required' => 0, 'user_defined' => 1, 'default' => '0', 'visible_on_front' => 1, 'source' => 'eav/entity_attribute_source_table', )); Mage::getSingleton('eav/config') ->getAttribute('customer_address', 'gender') ->setData('used_in_forms', array('adminhtml_customer_address')) ->save();
While I am "reusing" source model "eav/entity_attribute_source_table" from the customer gender I thought it would be automatically populated with the options. But it is not the case. Any ideas what I missed or need to be modified? Thank you in advance.
