Hi all,
I am having an issue to access some method from controller class within loop through.
This is what I am doing

class SamplePage extends Page {

	private static $has_many = array(

		'SampleDataList' => 'SampleData'		



class SampleData extend DataObject {

	private static $db = array();

	private static $has_one = array(
		'SamplePage' => 'SamplePage'


	private static $many_many = (
		'OtherPages' => 'OtherPage'


class OtherPage extend SiteTree {

	private static $belongs_many_many = array(
		'SampleDatas' => 'SampleData'


class OtherPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

	public function SomeMethod() {


in template created for 'SampleData' (dataobject as page)

<% loop $OtherPages %> <% end_loop %> I can able to access Title, Content etc. of OtherPage.

But how do I access SomeMethod()
