TreeDropdownField showing Admin instead of Site Content

I am trying to create a drop down menu that displays the pages on my site... but when I use 'TreeDropdownField' it gives me a list of site admin ... not the pages.

Is there anything I'm doing wrong here?

static $has_one = array(
      'BoxTree1' => 'SiteTree'

function getCMSFields() {
      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Box1', new TreeDropdownField('BoxTree1','More Link'), "SiteTree");

From memory I think it's like this:

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Box1', new TreeDropdownField('BoxTree1ID', 'More Link', 'SiteTree'));

Uh oh... now I have a new problem... how do I return the URL from a selection? It seems to be returning an ID.
