I've made a custom form which I want to mail and am using PopulateTemplate to format this mail however I get the following error testing in a wamp environment.:

FATAL ERROR: Object::__call() Method 'populateTemplate' not found in class ''
At line 199 in C:\wamp\www\silverstripe\sapphire\core\Object.php

user_error(Object::__call() Method 'populateTemplate' not found in class '',256)
line 199 of Object.php

Object->__call(populateTemplate,Array)
Email->populateTemplate(Array)
line 168 of ReceptenPage.php

ReceptenPage_Controller->doReceptAanvraagForm(Array,Form)
line 238 of Controller.php

Controller->run(Array)
line 22 of ModelAsController.php

ModelAsController->run(Array)
line 104 of Director.php

Director::direct(/uitproberen/)
line 158 of main.php

Context

This is my code and I can't find where I went wrong, I've made a ReceptTemplate.ss in mysite/templates/email:

function doReceptAanvraagForm($data, $form) {

$email = new Email(
$from = $data['email'],
$to = "mymailadres@gmail.com",
$subject = "Receptaanvraag"
);
$email->ss_template = "ReceptTemplate";
$templateData = array(
"Anaam" => $data["Anaam"],
"Vnaam" => $data["Vnaam"]
);
$email->populateTemplate($templateData);
$email->send();

// Redirect to a page thanking people for registering
Director::redirect('uitproberen/');
}

Which version of Silverstripe are you using?

I think pre 2.3 you had to use new Email_Template instead of new Email. The Email_Template was a subclass of Email.

In 2.3 this has been changed and I think it was all merged into one class Email, so if you're still using an older version, populateTemplate will not be a method of Email.

The docs are already for 2.3, so this is pretty confusing.

I noticed this as well....

It looks like you need to use email_template in 2.2.2 and Email in 2.3 ....
