Thanks very much for getting back to me, I have added in another closing bracket that seemed to be throwing a spanner in the works so the code now shows,

$result->push(new ArrayData(array('Folder' => $folder['Folder'], $files => $files)));

I am now getting the following error message,

[User Error] Bad class to singleton() - Files
GET /silverstripe/investor-login/investor-area/

Line 334 in C:\wamp\www\silverstripe\sapphire\core\Core.php

325 *
326 * @param string $className
327 * @return Object
328 */
329 function singleton($className) {
330    global $_SINGLETONS;
331    if(!isset($className)) user_error("singleton() Called without a class", E_USER_ERROR);
332    if(!is_string($className)) user_error("singleton() passed bad class_name: " . var_export($className,true), E_USER_ERROR);
333    if(!isset($_SINGLETONS[$className])) {
334     if(!class_exists($className)) user_error("Bad class to singleton() - $className", E_USER_ERROR);
335       $_SINGLETONS[$className] = Object::strong_create($className,null, true);
336       if(!$_SINGLETONS[$className]) user_error("singleton() Unknown class '$className'", E_USER_ERROR);
337    }
338    return $_SINGLETONS[$className];
339 }

Any thoughts on the problem?

I really do appreciate your help with this, sorry to keep coming back with fresh problems! (I'm midway through a Lynda course on PHP and im diving in at the deepend here!) However, once i get this sorted, it will be somthing i can use again and again, and hopefully understand how/why im gettign these errors!

Yep, that's an easy one. The following line is incorrect:

$files = DataObject::get('Files');

There is no "Files" object, only "File" objects.

Hi Hamish

I'm using this code to get secured files and display on the frontend:

function getViewableFiles() {
          $files = new DataObjectSet();
          $folders = DataObject::get('Folder');
          if(!$folders) return $files;
          foreach($folders as $folder)
               if(!$folder->Secured && !$folder->InheritSecured())
                   if($subFiles = DataObject::get('File', "ClassName != 'Folder' && ParentID = {$folder->ID}"))
          return $files; // Should contain all files that the member can view.

But I have an issue with this code as it is grabbing only last created folder by ID. It means, if I have 2 different users with 2 separated folders, only one user will see files, because I'm getting only one folder. Where could be a problem?

Best regards

You seem to be missing braces after the foreach loop. Probably the cause of your problem because it's looping through every folder before moving to the CanView check - so only the last folder in the set gets analysed.
