I'm trying to use getReportField to display a ComplexTableField but i'm having a very hard time figuring out how to do it.


* An extension to {@link SSReport} that allows a user to view all, booked, and not booked reports

*Gets all Rental Requests
class AllRentalRequestReport extends SS_Report {
		function title() {
			return 'All Rental Requests';
		function description() {
			return 'All Rental Requests';
	function getReportField(){
		$CTF = new ComplexTableField(
				'All Rental Requests Report',
				$fieldList = array(
					'ID' => 'ID',			   
					'FirstName' => 'First Name',
					'LastName' => 'Last Name'
		return $CTF;


BookingFormSubmission is a class that has several fields, nothing more

* Custom class used to process Booking request form

class BookingFormSubmission extends DataObject {
			static $db = array (
				'FirstName' => 'Text',
				'LastName' => 'Text',
				'Email' => 'Text',
				'PhoneNumber' => 'Text',
				'ArrivalDate' => 'Text',
				'DepartureDate' => 'Text',
				'Guests' => 'Text',
				'AdditionalQuestions' => 'Text',
				'Booked' => 'Boolean'


I can't get the ComplexTableField form to show up in the CMS. I believe I am doing something wrong with the ComplextableField constructor but just not sure how to make it work correctly. Any guidance would be nice.

I've already tried looking at and but still confused.

Thank you
