Okay. I,ve read some Tutorials to build Silverstripemodules.
But now i want to try a simple code and it wont work

okay code on testDbase.php

class testDbase extends DataObject{
static $db=array("Field1"=>"Varchar","Field2=>"Varchar");

When i build this, everthing will be created fine. Table named "testDbase" with those Fields
Now i try to write into this table with a simple testcode in a other php file called text.php

require("testDbase.php"); //of course i also require all the other needed classes like DataObject, DB and so on....

$test=new testDbase();


Of course an error occours with "Call to a member function manipulate() on a non-object" becaus $test is an Object but $test->Field1 and $test->Field2 arent.

So. How can i solve that?

You dont need to require anything. If you code is in mysite/code SilverStripe auto loads all your PHP class's. So just having

$test = new testDbase();
$test->Field1 = "Test";

Will work fine. Is your other text.php file a SilverStripe class?
