I have a FamilyPage and a dataobject "Jobs"

In FamilyPage I can create the DropDown:

function getCMSFields()

   {

      $fields = parent::getCMSFields();

$jobsob = DataObject::get('Jobs');
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Band5', new DropdownField('JobTitle', 'Jobs', $Jobsob->map()));

The dropdown works, except it show every job in the dataobject (which it should).

I can manually get the correct ones using:

$jobsob = DataObject::get('Jobs', 'FamiliesID = 226'); // I know 226 is the ID of one of the FamilyPages
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Band5', new DropdownField('JobTitle', 'Jobs', $Jobsob->map()));

How do I replace "FamiliesID = 226" with the ID of the FamilyPage that I am currently in?

Thanks,
Brian

$jobsob = DataObject::get('Jobs', "FamiliesID = {$this->ID}");
