Dataobjectmanager inside Member decorator?




Community Member, 49 Posts

I have a scenario where I am trying to assign (has_many) subscriptions to a member. Via the CMS, I would like to be able to edit a member in the security tab, and in the popup window have a dataobjectmanager on the "Subscription" tab, which allows me to add subscriptions to the member.

Catch is, I have a DataObjectDecorator for the Member class. Using the code below, I have it setup so the Dataobjectmanager does appear on the subscription tab, but:

A) it is poorly formatted and
B) after I add the first dataobject, the edit member popup errors from there on in:

[User Error] Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'fortemplate' does not exist on 'Member'

Can anyone help me setup this dataobjectmanager on the edit member popup?


class MemberDecorator extends DataObjectDecorator {

   function extraStatics() {
      return array (
      'db' => array(
          'PhoneNumber' => 'Varchar(255)',
            'Status' => "Enum('Active,Disabled','Disabled')",
         'defaults' => array(
          'Status' => 'Disabled'
         'has_many' => array( 'Subscription' => 'Subscription' ));
   public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet $fields) {
         new DataObjectManager($this->owner, 'Subscription', 'Subscription')




class Subscription extends DataObject {
static $db = array(
      'From' => 'Date',
      'To' => 'Date',
'Type' => "Enum('Associates, Full')",
'Amount' => 'Varchar(150)',
      'Status' => "Enum('Unpaid, Paid', 'Unpaid')"
   //Fields to show in the DOM table
static $summary_fields = array(
   static $has_one = array('Member' => 'Member');
   static $defaults = array ();
   //static $default_sort = "DosageDate DESC";
   public function getCMSFields()
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

return $fields;
