    Dropdown causes javascript parse error Link to this post


    I have added the following code to a new page type in an otherwise stable CMS project:

    function getCMSFields() {
    $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
           new DropdownField(
             'Please choose a member',
             Dataobject::get("Member")->toDropdownMap("ID", "Surname")
    return $fields;

    I have also tried adding the dropdown to the Main tab. The db field referred to is defined as

    public static $db = array(
          'memberID' => 'int'

    Unfortunately when I now try to Save or Save and Publish i land up with a Javascript Parse Error. I have tried running in dev mode and don't get any errors or warnings before taht point.

    Should I report this as a bug or am I doing something dumb?
