check out the api docs for email - there should be a couple methods which you can call like $email->attachFile(yourfilename)

Thank you, willr.
I'll check it and see what can I do.

EDIT: Tell me one thing please. I'm trying to send and attachment with the newsletters.
Is it possible to do like that?

And one more thing, I was going to try to use attachFile, but I don't really know where should I use it (in Email class or Newsletter class).

Hi everyone,

I have some problem with the FileField type. I want to have a link to a single doc file and my code is almost identical to the code of DesignCity in the third post:

class DocumentPage extends Page
   static $db = array(
      'Auteur' => 'Text',
      'ResumeCourt' => 'Text'
   static $has_one = array(
      'lienDocument' => 'FileIFrameField'
   function getCMSFields()
      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextareaField('Auteur', 'Auteur(s)'), 'Content');
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new TextareaField('ResumeCourt', 'Resume Court'), 'Content');
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Document', new FileIFrameField('lienDocument', 'Selectionner votre document'));
      return $fields;

class DocumentPage_Controller extends Page_Controller


When I edit the page in the admin section I get the following error message:

Fatal error: Class 'FileIFrameField ' not found in /var/www/sapphire/core/model/DataObject.php on line 921

I tried to use the FileField type instead and it seem to work. The Browse... button appear in the interface but there is no Upload button. Did I missed something ?

Thank for you help !

PS: Silverstripe is VERY nice ! By far the best CMS/platform around !
