I want use a DropdownField input which values are generated from a dynamically table records. So I create a method to generate array for my dropdown value.

I set the field data type to Int ( usually its Enum for static values ). I do the dev/build and ?flush=all, but in my backend form it's show a text input and there is no error message.

I have no idea, why my dropdown automatically change to text input ?? I need help.

Here is my code :


class Cust_UUKategori extends DataObject {
   static $db = array(
      'kategori' => "Varchar(100)"

class Perundangan extends DataObject {

public static $db = array(
'Title' => 'Varchar(100)',
   'Category' => 'Int',
'Subject' => 'Text'

// One-to-one relationship with video files and video list page
public static $has_one = array(
'DocFile' => 'File',
   'PerundanganListPage' => 'PerundanganListPage'

// Summary fields
public static $summary_fields = array(
'Title' => 'Produk Hukum',
'Category' => 'Kategori',
'Subject' => 'Tentang'

public function getCMSFields_forPopup() {
   $titleField = new TextField('Title', 'Judul Produk Hukum');
   $subjectField = new TextareaField('Subject', 'Tentang');
   $aryCat = $this::getmap_uukategori();
   $catField = new DropdownField('Category', 'Kategori', $this::getmap_uukategori());      // new TextField('Category', 'Kategori');
// Video file field
$docField = new UploadField('DocFile', 'Upload PDF');
$docField->allowedExtensions = array('pdf');

// Name, Description and Website fields
return new FieldList(

public static function getmap_uukategori() {
   $Data = DataObject::get('Cust_UUKategori');

   foreach($Data as $row) {
      $ret[$row->ID] = $row->kategori;
   return $ret;
