Hi there,

I don't know where to post it to be honest, so I'm posting my issue here. I apologize if it doesn't fit. :)

My issue:
I have a 1 to many relation with a HasManyComplexTableField. Each row in the table is a single project. What I want to accomplish is let upload as many pictures for each project as you wish, in the popup of couse. I realized that the image upload form doesn't let you choose more than one picture. I can do several forms, no problem, but I don't know how many pictures a single project will contain.

I've come with an idea to create a ComplexTableField in the popup, one row will connect with one picture. But not mentioning that the Add button doesn't show under the Table (I have no idea why, did everything the same way I did with the main Table), it seems really complicated and I don't have that much experience and time to try every possible way of accomplishing it.

That's why I'm writing here for your help. I hope there is a decent way of creating such a really commong in my opinion form. Please, if you could explain me a technique of doing it, just few hints, I'd be realy grateful.

Thanks for any help,

Ps. I've searched the archives for my issue, but didn't find anything helpful, maybe missed something.
