i have written a module, that adds a HMCTF to the Page dataobject, so i can use the HMCTF in every object that extends Page. for this, i decorated the Page with DOD.

now i would like to save the id of the active SiteTree object within the dataobject, so i can display only the dataobjects relevant to the site.

and here i'm stuck.
i was trying to add a TextField to the HMCTF with the id i get with $this->owner->ID, but it seems not to work.

my (simplified) updateCMSFields function in the decorator looks like:

public function updateCMSFields(FieldSet &$fields) {
   $tableField = new HasManyComplexTableField(
       "items", // name of the relation
       "DataObject", // my extension of the DataObject
          "field1" => "field1",

can i somehow "inject" a value to the FieldSet returned by getCMSFields_forPopup??

:) update: writing this entry i had an idea, that was the solution....

instead of: "getCMSFields_forPopup" in the updateCMSFields() function, i just created a new FieldSet with the extrax data i neaded...
