Linking Dataobjects in Widget

Go to End

I'm trying to link some DataObjects to a Widget. In my particular case, I have

	static $has_many = array(
		'Buttons' => 'SocialButton'

in my Widget and

	static $has_one = array(

in my DatabObject.

I'm trying to do this with a GridField, but this fails:

                $fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		$gridField = GridField::create('Buttons', 'Some text', $this->Buttons(), new GridFieldConfig_RelationEditor());//new GridField("Buttons", "Buttons", $this->Buttons(), $gridFieldConfig);
		$fields->push($gridField); //This line causes a Internal Server Error

So, my question is - is it allowed to use a GridField in a Widget? If yes, why is the $fields->push call creating the error? If not, are there any alternatives?

Thanks in advance.
