SS3 confused with getManyManyComponents()

Hi experts,
I can't get getManyManyComponents() working :(
I have extend a page of type product with

public static $many_many = array(
   'Images' => 'Image'   

So now I have a table called Product_Images with the comlumns ProductID and ImageID in my database.
Within the CMS I can attach images to my ProductPage and everything is working fine.

Now I want to access all images of a Product from a Shortcode.
(it has to come from a shortcode and not within the template itself)
I can get the current ProductID with Director::...... or from an argument of the shortcode.
And now I want to retrieve my images related to this ProductID.

$ProductImages = new Product_Images;
$images = $ProductImages->getManyManyComponents('Images', array('Product_Images.ProductID' => $intPageID));

doesn't work.

What am I doing wrong?

TIA Stephan

Hi Stephan,


$product = //get product some how
$images = $product->Images();
foreach($images as $image) Debug::show($image);
