Hi,

I'm having some difficulty with displaying a dataobject on my page. All I get is a 404 Page not found.

The function I'm using in my controller is this:

class DataBaseResults_Controller extends Page_Controller{

   public function init(){
      parent::init();
      $params = Director::urlParams();
      Requirements::css("DataBase/css/callerdatabase.css");
      Requirements::javascript("jsparty/jquery/jquery.js");
      Requirements::javascript("DataBase/javascript/jquery.tablesorter.min.js");
   }

   public function ResultsView(){
      $params = Director::urlParams();
      return (isset($params['Action']) && $params['Action'] == 'viewcase');
   }

and in my template:

<a href="{$Top.Link}viewcase/{$ID}"mce_href="{$Top.Link}viewcase/{$ID}" title="Go to the $Title.XML page" class="$LinkingMode levela">View</a>

      <% if ResultsView %>
         <% if getDisplayResultsDetails %>
         <% control getDisplayResultsDetails %>
### display results here ###
         <% end_control %>
         <% end_if %>
      <% end_if %>

I've used this method before in earlier versions of Silverstripe and can't understand why this won't work, any ideas where I'm going wrong?

do you have the appropriate director rule for DataBaseResults in your _config.php?

No, never had to do this before, what does this entail?

What version of Silverstripe are you running? If this method is called when a custom action is used in the URL, you will need to add the 'allowed_actions' static to your controller (as of 2.4).

Also, it maty sound silly, but is the page you are trying to access named correctly and of the DataBaseResults type? Also, I am guessing you also have a Page extension that goes with that controller extension?

Also, could you include the code for: getDisplayResultsDetails()? The error might be related to that?

Cheers,

Guys, thank you so much!

I knew it would be something simple, yes it turns out I'd not set the "allowed actions", something I have not looked at in SS2.4.

Thank you again!
