I'm removing the upload folder selection & manually setting the upload folder on the DOM popup for a dataobject. Code below:

public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
		$upload = new ImageUploadField('Image');
		$upload->uploadFolder = 'Photos';
		$f = new FieldSet(
			new TextField('Title'),
			new TextareaField('Description'),
		if($this->ID) {
			$f->push(new DropdownField('PhotoAlbumID', 'Attach to a Photo Album', $this->profileAlbumsDropdown()));
		return $f;

When you're creating a new object, the upload folder selector is visible. However after saving it, then clicking to edit it in the DOM again, the folder selection is hidden, just like it's supposed to be. What gives?? Why is it displaying the selector at first, but not after creation?

I quickly discovered that because I'm using an ImageDOM, the initial creation of the object uses the DOM's default upload folder, while editing the object later on uses the ImageUploadField's upload folder. Weird.

The solution was to also set the upload folder on the ImagDOM, however I don't think there's a method for removing the ability to change/select the upload folder.
