Hey guys, Having some trouble with a control block and complextablefield. Likely a n00b question but i'm at the point of wtf

$category in the template will display a list of entries but i want to show all the fields from $category. My first time using the complextablefield, so i'm pretty stuck on whats going wrong here.

cheers for you time

DriverHolder.php

<?php

class DriverHolder extends Page {
static $db = array(

);

static $has_one = array(

);
static $has_many = array(
'category' => 'category'
);

function getCMSFields() {
$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Drivers', new ComplexTableField(
$this,
'Title',
'category',
array('Title' => 'Title', 'Description' => 'Description'),
'getCMSFields_forPopup'
));

return $fields;

}
}

class DriverHolder_Controller extends Page_Controller {}

?>

DriverHolder.ss

<table>
<th>Driver</th><th>Description</th><th>Download</th>
<% control catagory %>
<tr>
<td>$Title</td>
<td>$Description</td>
<td>$File.URL</td>
</tr>
<% end_control %>
</table>

You have a typo in your control block "catagory" - could be the cause?
