Hi, need some help here with a form which I'm using in the front end to update a dataobject. Basically I'm getting a blank page when I submit my form, I've done some debugging and testing and it seems to be losing the id.

Any ideas where I'm going wrong anyone?

Here is my code:


class CallerDatabase extends Page{

class CallerDatabase_Controller extends Page_Controller{

	public function displayCallEvent(){
		$params = Director::urlParams();
		return (!isset($params['Action']));

	public function displayEditCallForm(){
		$params = Director::urlParams();
		return (isset($params['Action']) && $params['Action'] == 'editcall');

	public function displayIndividualCallDetails(){
		$params = Director::urlParams();
		return (isset($params['Action']) && $params['Action'] == 'viewcall');

	public function CallEvent(){
		return DataObject::get("CallEvent");

	public function getIndividualCallDetails(){

		if($urlID = Director::URLParam('ID')){

			$CallEventID = Convert::raw2xml($urlID);

				return DataObject::get_by_id('CallEvent', $CallEventID);

	public function EditCallEvent(){

		$urlAction = Director::URLParam('Action');

			$urlID = Convert::raw2sql(Director::urlParam('ID'));

			$CallEvent = DataObject::get_by_id("CallEvent", Convert::raw2sql(Director::urlParam('ID')));
			$PersonDetail = DataObject::get_by_id("PersonDetail", Convert::raw2sql(Director::urlParam('ID')));

		$fields = new FieldSet(
				new HiddenField('ID','ID: ', $urlID), 
				new TextField('FirstName', 'First name', $PersonDetail->FirstName), 
				new TextField('Surname', 'Surname', $PersonDetail->Surname), 
				new TextField('Age', 'Age', $PersonDetail->Age), 

			$actions = new FieldSet(
				new FormAction("UpdateCallEvent", "Update")

			return new Form($this, "EditCallEvent", $fields, $actions);
	public function UpdateCallEvent($data, $form){

		$PersonDetail = DataObject::get_by_id('PersonDetail', Convert::raw2sql($data['ID']));

				$PersonDetail->FirstName = $data['FirstName']; // sets property on object
				$PersonDetail->Surname = $data['Surname']; // sets property on object
				$PersonDetail->Age = $data['Age']; // sets property on object
				$PersonDetail->write(); // writes row to database

		Director::redirect(Director::baseURL(). $this->URLSegment . "/?success=1");

	public function Success(){
		return isset($_REQUEST['success']) && $_REQUEST['success'] == "1";
