Hey There,

I managed to extend the members with an extra class (db table).

// define the db-fields
static $db = array('Adres' => 'Varchar',      
                'Postcode' => 'Varchar',      
                'Woonplaats' => 'Varchar',      
                'Telefoon' => 'Varchar',      
                'Mobiel' => 'Varchar',      
                'Geslacht' => 'Varchar',      
                'Geboortedatum' => 'Date'

// Every profile has one member and one photo
static $has_one = array(
      'Foto' => 'Image'

When i public view the profile i get all field by a $oMember = Member::get_by_id('Member',2);

I also get a Field called FotoID. But how can i view that image?

I tried :

<% control Foto %>
         Foto id = $ID
         <% control CroppedImage(103,105) %>
            <img id="profielImage"alt="<% control Member %>$FirstName $Surname<% end_control %>" title="<% control Member %>$FirstName $Surname<% end_control %>"src="$URL" />
         <% end_control %>
      <% end_control %>

But it doesn't render the image.

Please help :)

This is a annoying little thing ive noticed but you get a ID returned so what you need to do is add another method to use that ID to get the photo and return the file.

so you would need a method like

function FotoFile() {
return ($this->FotoID) ? DataObject::get_by_id("File", $this->FotoID) : false;

Then instead of using $Foto in the Template you would use $FotoFile for the Control.
