Hi There

I am a little stuck at the moment, I have a function (this works ok) that looks like this.

            function Addab()
                $a = 1
                $b = 2
                $c = $a+$b;
                return $c;

my question is how can i get the result and write it to a field in another dataobject?

any help or ideas would be appereciated thank you

How you get the result of that depends on where that function is and where you want to write the dataobject?

To update a dataobject it's a simple task of getting the object, setting the property and calling write()

$obj = Page::get()->first();
$obj->Title = "Test";
