Allowed Actions on Forms

This is the first time I have gotten into using URL parameters to control various events and I am having a few problems.

What I need is to be able to click on a link that opens a lightbox with a contact form inside to contact a specific member.

I have set up my routes.yml file as follows:

Name: popuprules
'contact-pop-up//$Action/$ID': ContactPopUp

My ContactPopUp.php file:

class ContactPopUp extends Controller {
   private static $allowed_actions = array(
   public static $url_handlers = array(
'contactmember/$Action/$ID' => 'contactmember'
   public function contactmember(SS_HTTPRequest $request) {
      $member = Member::currentUserID();
         return $this->ContactForm();
      } else {
         return 'not logged in';
   public function ContactForm(){
      $MemberID = $this->request->param('ID');
      $do = Member::get();
      $do = $do->filter(array('ID' => $MemberID));
      foreach($do as $member){
         $to_email = $member->Email;
      $fields = new FieldList(
         new TextField('Name'),
         new EmailField('Email'),
         new TextField('Subject'),
         new TextField('Phone'),   
         new TextAreaField('Message','Message'),
         new HiddenField('EmailTo', '',$to_email)   
      $actions = new FieldList(
         new FormAction('submitContact', 'Submit')
      $form = new Form($this, 'ContactForm', $fields, $actions);
      return $form;
   function submitContact($data, $form) {
$from = $data['Email'];
      $to = $data['EmailTo'];
      $subject = 'Enquiry';
      $email = new Email($from, $to, $subject);


But I keep getting the result

Action '3' isn't available on class Form.

Where 3 is the correct user ID I want to access.

How do I make this available on the form class? Do I need to add something else to the routes.yml file?

Hoping someone can help.
