I am trying to add a form to userforms using the code below:


* A dropdown field which allows the user to select a store
* @package userforms
class EditableStoreDropdownField extends EditableFormField {

static $singular_name = 'Store Dropdown';

static $plural_name = 'Store Dropdowns';

public function getFormField() {

//$values = Dataobject::get("StorePage", "", "Store ASC");

return new DropdownField(
'NZ' => 'New Zealand',
'US' => 'United States',
'GEM'=> 'Germany'


public function getIcon() {
return 'userforms/images/editabledropdown.png';


I've run /dev/build and flush, but whenever I visit a page that I've assigned the field to I get this error:

Please implement a getFormField() on your EditableFormClass.

Even though that method is any there.

Any help would be appreciated.

Do you see a backtrace? What class is it being triggered from? As you mentioned, it shouldn't be originating in EditableStoreDropdownField so perhaps it's being triggered elsewhere.
