I am looking for some samples on the use of the following DataObject::Get command to query the data from database:

$records = DataObject::get($obj, $filter, $sort, $join, $limit);

I need to use this command to code a couple of controller objects but I can't find the details of $obj, $filter etc. A couple of sample codes will help me to use it.

Is there any documentation that I can look into?

If you are looking for API level docs on it you can find it You cannot get controller object - its designed for classes which extend dataobject.

For examples of dataobject get just look through the tutorials / existing code.
