hello everyone

i'm using a nested set to manage a tree ( a User can have an another user as 'parent' ) , so i created a costum column for User object to show 'parent' on the list and it works fine , it's ok also for adding new object ( new User with a parent reference ) , my problem is for editing a User : changing the parent has no effect , i can't see where is the problem.

UserForm.class.php :

class UserForm extends BaseUserForm
public function configure()
$this->setWidget('parent', new sfWidgetFormDoctrineChoice(array('model'=>'User','add_empty'= >true,)));
unset($this['parent_id'],$this['root_id'],$this['lft'],$this ['rgt']);

$this->setDefault('parent', $this->getObject()->getNode()->getParent());

public function doSave($con = null){
//save record itself
//if parent specified ,add/move this node to be the child of that node
$parent = Doctrine::getTable('User')->findOneBy('id', $this->getValue('parent'));
//if no parent was selected , add/move this node to be new root in the tree
$categoryTree = Doctrine::getTable('User')->getTree();
$this->getObject()->getNode()->makeRoot($this->getObject()- >getId());

class User extends BaseUser
public function __toString()
return sprintf('%s', $this->getNom()." ".$this->getPrenom());

public function getParent(){
$parent = $this->getNode()->getParent();
return $parent;

thx for help
