How do I get the "$ShWidth" to display inside the control the first one outside is fine but not inside the control....
I want the width the same for every li the other info is variable etc.

I have this in my template:

SlideshowPage.ss

<ul>$ShWidth
				<% control Slideshows %>
				    <li <% if First %>class="show"<% end_if %>><a href="http://$ShLink"><img src="$SlideshowImage.URL" width="$ShWidth" alt="$ShTitle" /></a></li>
				<% end_control %>
				</ul>

SlideshowPage.php

<?php
class SlideshowPage extends Page
{
	
	 static $db = array(
	 		'ShWidth'  => 'Int'

   );
	
	static $has_many = array (
		'Slideshows' => 'Slideshow'
	);
	
	public function getCMSFields()
	{
		$f = parent::getCMSFields();
		
	    $f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.SlideshowConfiguration", new NumericField('ShWidth','Slideshow Width (pixels)'));
		
		$manager = new DataObjectManager(
			$this, // Controller
			'Slideshows', // Source name
			'Slideshow', // Source class
			array('ShTitle' => 'Title', 'ShLink' => 'Image Link', 'Thumbnail' => 'Image'), // Headings
			'getCMSFields_forPopup' // Detail fields function or FieldSet
			// Filter clause
			// Sort clause
			// Join clause
		);
		
		$f->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.Slideshow", $manager);
		
		return $f;
	}

}
class SlideshowPage_Controller extends Page_Controller
{
}
?>

Slideshow.php

<?php
class Slideshow extends DataObject
{
	static $db = array (
		'ShTitle' => 'Text',
		'ShLink' => 'Text',

			);
	
	static $has_one = array (
		'SlideshowImage' => 'Image',
		'SlideshowPage' => 'SlideshowPage'
	);
	
	
	function Thumbnail() {
	$Image = $this->SlideshowImage();
	if ( $Image ) {
		return $Image->CMSThumbnail();
	} else {
		return null;
	}
}
	
	public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
	{
		return new FieldSet(
			new ImageField('SlideshowImage','Slideshow Image'),
			new TextField('ShTitle','Title'),
			new TextField('ShLink','Image Link')
		);
	}
}
?>

Thanks!

You need to use $Top.ShWidth. $Top breaks out of the control and references back to the page your on.
