Trouble making a form with a CheckboxSetField

Hey there,

I'm trying to create a extended search form to search in one of my modules. But as soon as i create a CheckboxSetField i get the error : Fatal error: Call to a member function hasMethod() on a non-object in /var/www/empex4/sapphire/forms/CheckboxSetField.php on line 21

I really can't figure out why this happends. I've shrinked the form to virtually nothing and still i get the same error. Here's my code :

class VacatureUitgebreidZoeken extends Page {
static $db = array(
static $has_one = array(

class VacatureUitgebreidZoeken_Controller extends Page_Controller {

   function VacatureSearchForm() {
      // Create fields
      $test = new CheckboxSetField('Werkstatus','Werkstatus',array('Fulltime' => 'Fulltime',
                                               'Parttime' => 'Parttime',
                                               'Oproepbasis' => 'Oproepbasis'));
      $fields = new FieldSet(
      $submitAction = new FormAction('uitgebreidZoekenResults', 'Resultaten weergeven');
      $actions = new FieldSet(
      $form = new Form($this, 'VacatureSearchForm', $fields, $actions
      return $form;

anyone knows what to do?

The problem technically is hasMethod shouldn't be called if the record doesn't exist. And it appears to have been fixed here:

You can add the extra check for $record to your CheckboxSetField.php file to resolve it.

Great! That worked!

I was checking rechecking and doing more checking, did it seem to be a framework failure!

Tnx for the solution!

No problems,

It looks like someone already ran into the same problem you had and resolved it. This fix will appear in the next release of the SS framework.

Thanks for pointing it out!
