Hi there,

I am trying my hand at some front end forms and i have created a dataobject called Customers.
I can list my customers with the following code in the front end:

// Display list of customers
function ShowCustomers() {
return Customer::get();

But how do i delete a customer? At the moment i have this:

// Delete customer
function DeleteCustomer() {
$SQL_id = (int) $this->ID;
echo $SQL_id;
$page = DataObject::get_by_id('Customer', $SQL_id);

To delete an object simply called delete. $obj->delete()

Thanks Willr,

I did the following and it worked for deleting a record in the customer.php dataobject
//Set permission to allow deletion function below
public static $allowed_actions = array ('delete');

//Delete customer when the following is typed in URL: customer/delete/10 (the record to delete)
public function delete ($request) {
$param = $request->allParams();
$delparam = $param["ID"];
