Can't Display HtmlEditorField

Hi, I have an odd problem. Hopefully a simple one.

I have a popup where I have added a HtmlEditorField, it refers to a database column set to "HTMLText" but all I get in my popup is a simple textarea field. No WYSIWYG buttons or anything.

What am I doing wrong?

class Products extends DataObject {

   static $db = array(
'Product_Name' => 'Text',
'Product_Blurb' => 'HTMLText'
function getCMSFields_forPopup() {

$fields = new FieldSet();
$fields->push( new TextField( 'Product_Name', 'Product Name'));
$fields->push( new HtmlEditorField("Product_Blurb", "Description"));

Any ideas?

It's a simple problem indeed: HtmlEditorField does not work in popups. I don't remember why or where did I found the info. I think that the DataObjectManager module implements a simple HTML field for popups.
