Hey Guys,

Need a little help.

I want to use the DataObjectManager because I have a lot of text fields and NOT EVERTIME A FILE. Or is it possible to use the FileDataObjectManager with optional Fileupload?

Here is my code:


class DataLinks extends DataObject
static $db = array (
'Author' => 'Text',
'Quote' => 'HTMLText'

static $has_one = array (
'DataLinks' => 'Links',
'Attachment' => 'File',


public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
return new FieldSet(

new TextField('Author'),
new TextareaField('Quote'),
new FileIFrameField('Attachment')


--------------------- and ------------------

class Links extends Page {

static $has_many = array
'DataLinkss' => 'DataLinks',


function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Testimonials", new DataObjectManager(
array('Date' => 'Date','Author'=>'Author','Quote' => 'Quote'),
return $fields;

class Links_Controller extends Page_Controller {

Here is the error:
[User Error] Couldn't run query: SELECT "DataLinks"."ClassName", "DataLinks"."Created", "DataLinks"."LastEdited", "DataLinks"."Author", "DataLinks"."Quote", "DataLinks"."DataLinksID", "DataLinks"."AttachmentID", "DataLinks"."ID", CASE WHEN "DataLinks"."ClassName" IS NOT NULL THEN "DataLinks"."ClassName" ELSE 'DataLinks' END AS "RecordClassName" FROM "DataLinks" WHERE ((getCMSFields_forPopup) AND ("DataLinksID" = '100')) ORDER BY Created DESC LIMIT 10 OFFSET 0 Unknown column 'getCMSFields_forPopup' in 'where clause'

Plz help...

Yeah, I ran into the same problem on a recent project, and I'm going to be adding in that feature to that FDOM has two action buttons -- "upload" and "add".. That way a user could provide an uploaded resource or just hit "Add" if they want to use an external link.

Well you could always just use a regular DOM..
