Got a newbie question,
as am SS and php beginer somehow cant get this function to work.


class GalleryPage extends Page
   static $has_many = array (
      'GalleryImages' => 'GalleryImage'
   public function getCMSFields()
      $f = parent::getCMSFields();
      $manager = new FileDataObjectManager(
         $this, // Controller
         'GalleryImages', // Source name
         'GalleryImage', // Source class
         'Resource', // File name on DataObject
            //'Thumbnail' => 'Image',
            'Name' => 'Name',
            'Caption' => 'Caption'
         ), // Headings
         'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
         // Filter clause
         // Sort clause
         // Join clause
$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Main", $manager, "Content_Caption");
      return $f;

class GalleryPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {   
      public function IsFLV()         
      $res = $this->Resource;
      $ext = $res->getExtension();
         if ($ext == 'flv')
            return true;         
            return false;


what i want to do is to get the Resource(is a file) extension, find out if it is and flv and return boolean.
i know the above syntax isnt right, but cant figure out how it should be.
tried different ways, mostly the $res is empty, or the page wont load at all.

GalleryPage doesn't have a "Resource" object, so $this->Resource will not return anything.

What are you trying to do?

I see that GalleryPage has many associated GalleryImages - is this what you are looking at? If so, you need to decide which GalleyImage you want to test, since it is not a 'one - one' relationship.
