I am using SS3, but I have used the documentation ( I got it working ofcourse, but I want to use multiple dataobjects, but I dont understand the following sentence.

In case you need multiple contexts, consider namespacing your request parameters by using FieldList->namespace() on the $fields constructor parameter.

Is there anyone, who could help me? This my current code.

public function SearchForm() {
      $context = singleton('CaseItem')->getCustomSearchContext();
      $fields = $context->getSearchFields();
      $form = new Form($this, "SearchForm",
         new FieldList(
            new FormAction('doSearch')
      return $form;

   public function doSearch($data, $form) {
      $context = singleton('CaseItem')->getCustomSearchContext();
      $results = $this->getResults($data);
      return $this->customise(array(
         'Results' => $results
      ))->renderWith(array('Page_results', 'Page'));

   public function getResults($searchCriteria = array()) {
      $start = ($this->request->getVar('start')) ? (int)$this->request->getVar('start') : 0;
      $limit = 10;

      $context = singleton('CaseItem')->getCustomSearchContext();
      $query = $context->getQuery($searchCriteria, null, array('start'=>$start,'limit'=>$limit));
      $records = $context->getResults($searchCriteria, null, array('start'=>$start,'limit'=>$limit));

      if($records) {
         $records = new PaginatedList($records, $this->request);

      return $records;
