Hi,

in my form, I tried to add new record with many-many relations using checkboxsetfield, but it returned the error "[User Error] Uncaught Exception: ManyManyList::add() can't be called until a foreign ID is set".

Anyone know what does it mean and how do I solve it?

By the way, I m using SS3 beta 3.

Many thanks.

I have found a way to solve it - that is to write once before save and rewrite. But I don't feel like this is the proper way to do it, can anyone advise me on this? Thanks.

....
$Event = new Event();
if ($EventID == 0) {
$Event->write(); //write the event once before save would solve the problem
} else {
$Event->ID = $EventID;
}

$form->saveInto($Event);
$Event->write();
...

The code is at the Page controller where you add your object, you may check out the structure of the codes in silverstripe tutorial http://doc.silverstripe.org/framework/en/tutorials/3-forms, my codes is as shown below:

class EventAddPage_Controller extends Page_Controller
{
...
public function doFrontEndForm($data, $form)
{

$Event = new Event();
$Event->write(); //for adding new record, it will have error when it comes to many-many relations if without write once before save

$form->saveInto($Event);
$Event->write();
}
...
}
