I'm trying to get a custom DOM action working that sets one, and only one, of the objects in the DOM to 'current.' I feel like I've done everything correctly, and I'm not getting any errors, but the objects' property isn't changing. Any clue what I might be doing wrong? Here's the code:

In Location (the dataobject class):

public function customDOMActions() {
      $title = $this->Type ? "Current" : "Past";
      return new DataObjectManagerAction(
         $title,
         "InternationalPage_Controller/toggleCurrent",
         "refresh"
      );
   }
   
   public function toggleCurrent() {
      if($this->getField('Type') == 'currLoc')
         $this->setField('Type', 'pastLoc');
      else
         $this->setField('Type', 'currLoc');
      $this->write();
   }

And in InternationalPage (the parent page):

class InternationalPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
   static $url_handlers = array(
      'toggleCurrent' => 'handleCurrent'
   );
   
   public function handleCurrent() {
      $locations = DataObject::get('Location');
      foreach($locations as $location) {
            $location->toggleCurrent();
      }
   }
}

You're going to need to provide more information. What is happening with the request? Are you sure it's hitting that controller? Can you put some output in that function and check the response?

I'm getting a 200 from both the GET and the POST from the controller, so I think that part is working correctly, but I'll try to throw in some sort of output into the function when I get home to see if it really is.

Thanks for responding.

Ok, now I'm getting a status:cancelled from the controller. I haven't been able to get the controller to return any output, so I'd guess I've broken something.
