I try to add some complex fields to the popup which appears when an entry is added or edited.

In detail, I try to use HtmlEditorField, ImageField and TreeDropdownField. As I read in another topic this isn't working that way I want it, so I want to ask if there is another way to use such fields in the form used by ManyManyComplexTableField.

imagefield should work, htmleditorfield definetly doesn't, and not sure about treedropdownfield.
good luck!

Sorry to dig this thread up but I've got a related question.

I'm trying to put a FileIFrameField inside a ManyManyComplexTableField pop up.

When I click add I get a notice saying:

"Notice: Trying to get property of non-object in /public_html/sapphire/forms/FileIFrameField.php on line 18"

Which isn't a big deal but then when I save for the first time the FileIFrameField does this:

"FATAL ERROR: Disallowed action: 'images' on controller 'CMSMain'
At line 121 in /public_html/sapphire/core/control/Controller.php"

The weird thing is if I close the popup and then click the edit button to bring the pop up back I can use it fine, this isn't really too cool for the client though.

Does anyone have any ideas? I can post code if required.

Thanks in advance!
