Hi Derek, Your DBIx::Class resultsets must have the relationships defined. See http://search.cpan.org/~frew/DBIx-Class-0.08200/lib/DBIx/Class/Relationship.pm See also the HTML::FormFu::Model::DBIC docs for how to define your form for each of the different types of relationships (so it knows how the form fields relate to the DBIC rels and columns) http://search.cpan.org/~pshangov/HTML-FormFu-Model-DBIC-0.09002/lib/HTML/FormFu/Model/DBIC.pm If you have further problems, you'll probably be better off posting to the html-formfu list http://lists.scsys.co.uk/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/html-formfu Cheers, Carl _______________________________________________ List: Catalyst@lists.scsys.co.uk Listinfo: http://lists.scsys.co.uk/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/catalyst Searchable archive: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/ Dev site: http://dev.catalyst.perl.org/
