I have a page object that has a Enum Field with two slections Sold/For Sale. This field corresponds with a two Page Types MyPage and SoldMyPage. When it's changed I'd like to function much like the Page Type dropdown.

If I call newClassInstance and a write function in onBeforeWrite, won't that cause a loop? In this case since the SoldMyPage is just a direct copy of MyPage, would it be OK to just call change the tyoe using $this->ClassName = SoldMyPage in the onBeforeWrite?
