Hello all,

i have a control in a template like this:

<% control Images %>

<% end_control %>

the control iterates a list of images. each object is type of Image (standard silverstripe class)
actually i would like to output the image like this inside the control

<% control Images %>
<% end_control %>

of course this is not working because I think I can only access properties of an object inside of a control. Image is not property of image. but can I somehow output the object itself? by using something like $this ...? i need it to say $this.SetWidth(100)

thanks in advance,

If you are inside that control, and each item is an image object then you don't need this. You can just do $SetWidth(100)
