How can I sort DataObjectManager items displayed in the administrative area by date?

Here is my code:

class FeaturedAuthorScheduleItem extends DataObject
{
   static $db = array (
      'Date' => 'Date',
      'Author' => 'Text'
   );

   public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
   {

   $AllMember = DataObject::get('Member');
   $Emails = array();
   foreach($AllMember as $Member) {
    $Emails[trim($Member->Email)] = trim($Member->Email);
   }
      return new FieldSet(
         new CalendarDateField('Date','Date (Day/Month/Year)'),
         new ListboxField('Author',"Author's Email Address",$Emails,0)
      );
   }
}

?>

and

$obj = new SiteConfig_DataObjectManager (
$this->owner,
'FeaturedAuthorScheduleItem',
'FeaturedAuthorScheduleItem',
array('Date'=>'Date','Author'=>'Author'),
'getCMSFields_forPopup'
);
$obj->setSourceID($this->owner->ID);
$obj->setAddTitle("Featured Author Schedule");
$obj->set_popup_width(630);
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.TopRow.FirstColumn", $obj);

The sort clause is the 7th argument of the DOM constructor. (8th for a FileDOM).

Thanks, any idea why this would give me a parse error? Am I putting the argument in the wrong place?

$obj = new SiteConfig_DataObjectManager (
$this->owner,
'FeaturedAuthorScheduleItem',
'FeaturedAuthorScheduleItem',
array('Date'=>'Date','Author'=>'Author'),
'getCMSFields_forPopup',
, null
,'Date ASC'
);

I found the problem. I had to replace

null

with

''
