Perhaps I'm missing something here, but the docs state:

/* Delete this data object.
* $this->onBeforeDelete() gets called.
* Note that in Versioned objects, both Stage and Live will be deleted.
* @uses DataExtension->augmentSQL()
public function delete() {

However, on a versioned DataObject delete() is only removing from the base table and not _Live table.

The delete is being invoked by a GridFieldConfig_RecordEditor.

Are the docs incorrect here, do I need to do an onAfterDelete hook to ensure it's actually deleted from both stage/live tables?

Hi @nzphoenix,

Do you get any solution on that, I am facing the same problem when I tried to delete dataobject from model admin.

Can't fully remember what the solution was here I'm afraid! I think we probably came up with a workaround.
