There doesn't seem to be anything about how to display my .pdf on the frontend in the docs

http://doc.silverstripe.org/modules:dataobjectmanager
unless I'm missing something

Resource.php
class Resource extends DataObject
{
static $db = array (
'Name' => 'Text',
'Description' => 'Text',
'Category' => "Enum('Brochure, EPC, HIPS, FloorPlan')"
);

static $has_one = array (
'Attachment' => 'File',
'HousePage' => 'HousePage'
);

public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
{
return new FieldSet(
new TextField('Name'),
new TextareaField('Description'),
new DropdownField('Category','Category', singleton('Resource')->dbObject('Category')->enumValues()),
new FileIFrameField('Attachment')
);
}
}

Housepage.php

static $db = array(
???

):
static $has_many = array(
'Bullets' => 'Bullet',
'Rooms' => 'Room',
'Resources' => 'Resource',
'ImageAttachments' => 'ImageAttachment'

);

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();

$manager = new FileDataObjectManager(
$this, // Controller
'Resources', // Source name
'Resource', // Source class
'Attachment', // File name on DataObject
array(
'Name' => 'Name',
'Description' => 'Description',
'Category' => 'Category'
), // Headings
'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields (function name or FieldSet object)
// Filter clause
// Sort clause
// Join clause
);
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Resources",$manager);

.ss FRONT Page

<% if Resources %>
<ul>
<% control Resources %>

<li>$Name $File ?guess </li>
<% end_control %>
</ul>
<% end_if %>

does anyone have any ideas

Its so easy when you know how. I was trying just $Attachment and all sorts.
