I am using SS3, but I have used the documentation ( I got it working ofcourse, but I want to use multiple dataobjects, but I dont understand the following sentence.

In case you need multiple contexts, consider namespacing your request parameters by using FieldList->namespace() on the $fields constructor parameter.

Is there anyone, who could help me? This my current code.

public function SearchForm() {
		$context = singleton('CaseItem')->getCustomSearchContext();
		$fields = $context->getSearchFields();
		$form = new Form($this, "SearchForm",
			new FieldList(
				new FormAction('doSearch')
		return $form;

	public function doSearch($data, $form) {
		$context = singleton('CaseItem')->getCustomSearchContext();
		$results = $this->getResults($data);
		return $this->customise(array(
			'Results' => $results
		))->renderWith(array('Page_results', 'Page'));

	public function getResults($searchCriteria = array()) {
		$start = ($this->request->getVar('start')) ? (int)$this->request->getVar('start') : 0;
		$limit = 10;

		$context = singleton('CaseItem')->getCustomSearchContext();
		$query = $context->getQuery($searchCriteria, null, array('start'=>$start,'limit'=>$limit));
		$records = $context->getResults($searchCriteria, null, array('start'=>$start,'limit'=>$limit));

		if($records) {
			$records = new PaginatedList($records, $this->request);

		return $records;
