    Can DataObjects have Controllers? Link to this post


    Can DataObjects have controllers like:

    class SomeObject extends DataObject {

    class SomeObject_Controller extends ContentController {

    and would that controller work the same way the page controllers work?

    I've tried a few different ways of doing this but the methods inside the controller aren't recognized on the page.

    No, a DataObject is just arbitrary data. It doesn't know anything about templates or controllers. You'll have to build a custom page controller to display the content of a DataObject.
