I'm taking another crack at developing this.

Following the tutorial at I've got my console page showing that I can add menu options to etc.

What i need now is to build a form on the right to select a CSV file and upload it. I'll then work through the csv and
* parse the data (easy)
* add each row to the data table objects
* save

Are there any examples of this being done? I'd love to shorten my learning curve by seeing how others have done it.



ps: using ulist in this post gave very unexpected results!

Here's an example of what I need to know...

<% control Items %>
	<li id="record-$class">
	<a href="admin/rents/show/$ID">$Title</a>
<% end_control %>

How do I add to the Items array? I've ended up hardcoding it but it would be good to work it properly.

edit: just reviewed the forums code and seen that the Items array is ignored in favour of a coded tree
