    ManyManyComplexTableField Changed in 2.3 Link to this post

    I've upgraded a site that uses a ManyManyComplexTableField on a frontend form. It worked well in the past (2.2.1?) but now fails with an error:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function Categories() on a non-object in C:\Program Files\xampp\htdocs\bigimage\sapphire\forms\HasManyComplexTableField.php on line 85

    After some digging around it looks as though it relies on $this->form->getRecord() returning an object (without checking if it does), I tried to set the record to the dataobject being represented and got further errors from Form.php.

    I'm not 100% sure on what its looking for and why so I'm not sure what to give it (if that makes any sense).

    Has the process for using ManyManyComplexTableFields been changed or has it been broken?

    Cheers,
    Nick

    Ok I think I've fixed it, AFTER the form has been constructed you need to call loadDataFrom($object) where object is the dataobject that the manymanycomplexttable field represents. It still doesn't seem to properly load the currently selected items, but that could be due to being in the middle of a multiform.
