Form doesn't run desired action

I currently have a form which is supposed to edit an existing member when it is run. However when I press submit, rather than running the function, it runs the default action defined in the form which is a non-existant page ( The code is here:


class ProfilePage extends Page {

class ProfilePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {
   static $allowed_actions = array(
   public function ProfileForm() {
      $fields = new FieldList(
         new TextField('FirstName', 'First Name'),
         new EmailField('Email', 'E-mail'),
         new CountryDropdownField('Country', 'Location', null, 'NZ')
      $actions = new FieldList(
         new FormAction('SubmitProfile', 'Submit')
      //$validator = new RequiredFields('Name');
      return new Form($this, 'ProfileForm', $fields, $actions);
   public function SubmitProfile($data, $form) {
      $member = currentUser();


It doesn't seem to recognise the SubmitProfile function... Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here? Thanks in advance :)

Edit: *facepalm* Solved it. Was trying to use the currentUser function by itself, had to access the Member class first.
