Out of curiosity should the folloing work (in a form action)?

      if($member = Member::currentUser()) {
         $form->saveInto($member);
         $member->write();
      }

After submiting a basic form with new TextField("FirstName", "First name", $member->FirstName)
Or do I have to go
$member->FirstName = $data->FirstName;
$member->write();

Right as expected it does work why my tests weren't working was I had a datefield casing issues

$dateField = new DateField('DOB', "Date of birth", $member->DOB);
$dateField->setConfig('dmyfields', true);
