    multiple instanes of class in page Link to this post

    this is a newb question but just cant get it right.

    I have a simple class called resource...
    And i want to use the same class for 2 items in a page.
    ie: I want to use the same class for a slideshow and a scroller component in end page
    I have tried has_many etc but think I am missing the point.
    I always have images shared...

    Since I am a hack I end up duplicating the class.

    surely I can use the same class????

    how to I set this up as obviously will be same table and same page but different...?

    Any help appreciated

    Something like this maybe?

    class MultiPurposeClass extends DataObject{

    class SomePage extends Page {

    static $has_one = array (
    'Scroller' => 'MultiPurposeClass',
    'SlideShow' => 'MultiPurposeClass'

    class SomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

    function SlideShow {
    return $this->SlideShow;

    function Scroller {
    return $this->Scroller;
