SWFUpload with MultiForm

I create new records from the frontend and in the first step i would like to upload the images.
I would like to create the record and his relationship only at the end of the process to avoid unnecessary data in the database.

The upload works, and I get the ID of the file.
But how do I save it in my multiFform-Session? Do I use a separate handleswfupload function?

Can i change the SWFUploadControls->$image_class?

I hope you can help me.
Thanks Jörn

Yeah, in your _config.php, just add:

SWFUploadControls::$image_class = "MyImage";

Thanks for your reply.
The class in the files-table is now correct, but how do I get in the form of multi-session?
I still have to use my own swfhandler-function and link it in there?

Shouldn't have to update the handleswfupload().. you have the ID, so there must be a way to store the value in your MultiForm module.. I've never used that module, but I assume it works on sessions. You could do it crudely by using Session::set(), I suppose.

Yes, I'll have to save it in the session, but the ID is handed back again to the Flash.
I must save it before, right?

At the end of the form-step, I will save it from the session in the multi-form.
