Happy Easter! Hope every one of you gets a chocolate egg.

Quick question about the scaffolded has_one Image field in ModelAdmin... Shouldn't it automatically be setting its allowedExtensions property to those of image files? Cos mine doesn't - it's stuck on All files. I've tried this:

		$image = new ImageField('Image');
		$image->allowedExtensions = array('jpg', 'jpeg');
		$fields->replaceField('Image', $image);

Which doesn't work, and I've also tried replacing the field with a SWFUploadFileIFrameField with this code:

		SWFUploadConfig::addFileTypes(array('jpg', 'jpeg'));
		$fields->replaceField('Image', new SWFUploadFileIFrameField('Image','Upload an image'));

Which throws:

Fatal error: Class 'Image_Uploader' not found in C:\xampp\htdocs\wag\swfupload\code\SWFUploadFileIFrameField.php on line 47

What am I missing?

Anybody? I'm a little stuck and I know my client will break this unless I can fix it!
