Hello, I need to populate dropdown field with enum values I tried:

$this->dbObject('Status')->enumValues(); as described there

class ContactPage extends Page {
	static $db = array(
		"Status" => "Enum('Active, Inactive')",
	static $can_be_root = false;

	static $has_one = array(
		'Photo' => 'Image'
	function getCMSFields() {
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
						new FieldGroup(
							new DropdownField('Status','Status',singleton('ContactPage')->dbObject('Status')->enumValues()),

But still getting error that there're no method enumValues

ERROR [User Error]: Uncaught Exception: Object->__call(): the method 'enumvalues' does not exist on 'Varchar'
IN POST /stable/admin/getitem?ID=42&locale=ru_RU&ajax=1
Line 724 in /home/a2nt/work/www/stable/sapphire/core/Object.php

[UPDATE]: SOLVED variable 'Status' reserved by SiteTree
