Hi guys,

I'm wanting/wondering if I can use the upload field on a parent object to save into a child object's image relation.

I have an ItemPage which has_many StoryItem which has_one Image
There are a few optional fields in StoryItem, so for simplicty I would like the awesome upload field on the ItemPage to drag and drop into.

I tried supplying Stories.Image as the $name when creating new UploadField(), no go though. Am I dreaming?

Using gridfield is fine too, just not quite as fast.

I'm currently in the process of upgrading a site from 2.4 to 3 where I had a working solution. I'll keep you posted as I should be tackling that section this week
