when i choose an item from a dropdown it saves and id, but in other page i have to show the literal value of that id ( id=1 name="jhon") i have to show "jhon" in another cms page, how can i do that?

now i have to show the name of the category, not the id, and all i have is the ID, how to get the name of the category based in the id of the category i get from the dropdown

items.php:

<?php

class item extends DataObject{
	
	static $db = array( 
		'itemName' => 'Varchar(50)', 		
		"itemDesc" => "Varchar(100)",
		"price" => "int",
		"catName"=>'Varchar(100)'		
	);
	
	static $has_one = array(
		'cat' => 'cat',
		'page' => 'items'
	);
	
		
	public function getCMSFields_forPopup(){
		$cat= DataObject::get('cat');
		$listCat = $cat ? $listCat = $cat->toDropdownMap('ID','catName') : array();
		
		return new Fieldset(
			new TextField('itemName', 'item Name',10,60),
			new TextField('ItemDesc', 'item Desc',10,150),
			new TextField('price', 'price',10,10),
			new DropdownField('catID', 'Select your category', $listCat )
			
		);
	}
}
?>

items.php:

<?php

class items extends Page {
	static $db = array(
		
	);
	static $has_one = array(
	);
	static $has_many = array(
		'items' => 'item'
	);
	
	public function getCMSFields(){
			
		$cat= DataObject::get('category');
		$catList = $cat? $catList = $cat->toArray('ID','CatName') : array();
		
		
		$f = parent::getCMSFields();
		$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", new DataObjectManager(
			$this,
			'items',
			'item',
			array(
				'itemName' => 'item Name',
				'price' => 'price',

  /* now i have to show the name of the category, not the id, and all i have is the ID, how to get the name of the category based in the id of the category i get from the dropdown
*/


				),
			'getCMSFields_forPopup'
			));
		$f->removeFieldFromTab("Root.Content.Main", "Content");
		return $f;
	}
	
}

class items_Controller extends Page_Controller {
	
	
}
?>
