Hi all,

Quick question. I have a page that is listing out all iterations of a data object. Each iteration is associated with one of the page's children.

How would I retrieve the child page association from the parent?


Currently I am using this (very simple) method and iterating through the results in the template file:

public function GalleryList() {
	$GalleryList = DataObject::get('ObjectPeekImage');
	return $GalleryList;

Any help in this would be appreciated.

That's a little confusing. Are you trying to figure out if the page related to ObjectPeekImage is also related to the current page? Or, just get the page related to ObjectPeekImage? Although you say it is related to "the page's children" - so surely you already know the relationship?

Put it this way, if ObjectPeekImage has a has_one relationship with a page (say "MyPage"), surely you can just do:

<% control GalleryList %>
	<% control MyPage %>
	<% end_control %>
<% end_control %>
