In Silverstripe 3, how can I run custom SQL and return the result for handling in my template? So far, I have:

function getListings(){
$sqlQuery = new SQLQuery();
$sqlQuery->setFrom('ListingCategory_Listings');
$sqlQuery->selectField('*');
$sqlQuery->addLeftJoin('Listing', '"ListingCategory_Listings"."ListingID" = "Listing"."ID"');
$sqlQuery->addLeftJoin('SiteTree_Live', '"Listing"."ID" = "SiteTree_Live"."ID"');
$sqlQuery->addLeftJoin('ListingCategory', '"ListingCategory_Listings"."ListingCategoryID" = "ListingCategory"."ID"');
$sqlQuery->addLeftJoin('File', '"ListingCategory"."IconID" = "File"."ID"');

$result = $sqlQuery->execute();
//return $result;
//$dataObject = new DataList();
$dataObject = new ArrayList();
foreach($result as $row) {
$dataObject->push(new ArrayData($row));
}
return $dataObject;

}


However, this is giving me the error:

Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'fortemplate' does not exist on 'ArrayList'

What am I doing wrong here and how can I get the result of this query into my template?

You can't simply use $Listings since as it says, it hasn't got a clue how to 'output' that to your template.

Make sure you have your template like <% loop $Listings %>..<% end_loop %>
