Im pretty new to SilverStripe, so excuse my ignorance but I cant figure out how to access an image ive uploaded via a custom module ive built.

Ive created the custom module and added to it an extra field in the CMS:

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new ImageField('Image','Upload Image'), 'Content');

ive also added the Image field to the has_one array:

static $has_one = array('Image' => 'File');

Now how do i call that in the .ss file? Is there a pre built function for loading in an associated image similar to $Content

or do i have to call a custom function that i build in the Controller of my module and return the image through it?

if i have to build it custom, what do i need to write in there? i dont have much of an idea..

Some help would be great.

never mind, i just changed the has_one array to:

static $has_one = array('Image' => 'Image');

and called $Image in the .ss file

seems to work fine :)
