I have created several dataobjects that ia wish users to edit from the front end. I can get the ComplexTableField to display the list of DataObjects associated with the user's account, however I can not get the front end forms to allow adding and editing. Any Thoughts?


public function libraryDocuments()
$fdo = new ComplexTableField(

$fields = new FieldSet(array(
new HiddenField('ID', ''),

$actions = new FieldSet(array(
new FormAction ('saveLibraryDocs','Save'),

//$actions = new FieldSet();

return new Form($this, 'libraryDocuments', $fields, $actions);

Off the top of my head, I'd say the Page_Controller doesn't have access to those controllers. I know I've used ComplexTableFields in the front end, but I've always removed those functions. Have you tried specifically setting the permissions?$permissions

I was able to get this working, it was a simple permissions issue on the dataobject. I neeted to implment PermissionsProvider and add the can(?) Access to the dataobject in question.
