I´m using the SimpleWysiwygField in a popup in cms showing html-content of a dataobject. With enabling the function "Insert Image" I see an input box asking me for an image URL. I would change this input box to a more user-friendly version which shows a dropdown-box including all images from the asset-section.
I took a look in the javascript files but I did not understand the current functionality. Can anybody help me?

I´m using dataobject-manager r#521 and silverstripe v2.4.2.

Best regards,

I would like to do the exact same thing. It would be nice to get something working like the "choose exisiting file"-Dialog within Uploadify but there seems to be no method to do so.

Can anyone help us?
