    [SOLVED] Population dropdown field with enum values Link to this post

    Hello, I need to populate dropdown field with enum values I tried:

    $this->dbObject('Status')->enumValues(); as described there http://doc.silverstripe.org/dropdownfield

    class ContactPage extends Page {
       static $db = array(
          "Status" => "Enum('Active, Inactive')",
       static $can_be_root = false;

       static $has_one = array(
          'Photo' => 'Image'

       function getCMSFields() {
          $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
                      new FieldGroup(
                         new DropdownField('Status','Status',singleton('ContactPage')->dbObject('Status')->enumValues()),

    But still getting error that there're no method enumValues

    ERROR [User Error]: Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'enumvalues' does not exist on 'Varchar'
    IN POST /stable/admin/getitem?ID=42&locale=ru_RU&ajax=1
    Line 724 in /home/a2nt/work/www/stable/sapphire/core/Object.php

    [UPDATE]: SOLVED variable 'Status' reserved by SiteTree
