I have a DataObject managed by AdminConsole and contains a DataObjectManager where I want to display a page's link in the headers array:

Class FeedClient extends DataObject {

    static $belongs_many_many = array( 'TestPages' => 'TestPage');

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

        $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Main', new ManyManyDataObjectManager(
                'MenuTitle' => 'Menu Title'
                ,'PageLink' => 'Page Link'  /*** headers array: hoping to display the TestPage's link with this but not working ***/
        return $fields;

The TestPage page type:

class TestPage extends Page {
    static $many_many ('FeedClients' => 'FeedClient')
    function getPageLink() {
        return $this->Link();

I realize that problem is that TestPage doesn't have a PageLink data field so based on some posts I read, I created a getPageLink() method and try to specify 'PageLink' in the headers array of the DataObjectManager, hoping it would display the page's link, but the CMS returns an error that says PageLink is not a field, as expected.

Is it possible to display the page's link in the DOM's headers array?
