In the Page.php file - this is all working

public static $has_one = array(
"BackgroundImage" => "Image"
);

$fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Content.OptionalHeaderImage", new ImageField("BackgroundImage", "Background Image:"));

---

In my template, I would like only the image path, but the system return this...

background-image:url(<img src="/assets/Backgrounds/blue-star/bg-body.jpg" alt="blue star" />);

How do I get just the path and file only?

Got it.

$BackgroundImage.URL

Add the .URL onto your control and it returns only the path.

On another issue, can I refine this even further?

What I need now is just the file name only?

/assets/Folder/filename.jpg

I need the "filename.jpg"

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Nope! It would be nice if it were that easy.

All it did was remove the first /

$name.URL = /assets/

$name.Filename = assets/

Sorry Steve, I should verify before posting. Try: $BackgroundImage.Name

Any ideas where tosearch to put a javascript path together?

formbgimagename = "form-bg-blue.png";
formbgimagesmall = "style="+"background-image:url(assets/Forms/Small/"+formbgimagename+")";

This doesn't work.
