i have several custom DataFields inside my Page. Inside the templates i can access the default fields by just naming them. Like "$Title" "$MenuTitle" etc.

this works inside Control Loops aswell.

What doesnt work is the same trick with my custom datafields. As soon my pages come inside a dataobjectset it seems the templates cant access my custom fields.

So if i try something like:

<% control Children %>
<a href="$Link" title="$MetaDescription">$myCustomTitle</a>
<% end_control %>

it does not work! As soon i access the page directly like:

<% control Page(mypage) %>
<a href="$Link" title="$MetaDescription">$myCustomTitle</a>
<% end_control %>
it works....

Probably its somethin trivial....

Is myCustomTitle a method on your controller class or on the model? If its on the controller you may not have access to it in a dataobjectset like children as it only stores the model object of the page. To fix this simply move the function from your controller to the model.
