How can I call a function of the parent of the actual class inside my template.
This try failes miserably:

<% control $Parent.MyFunction() %>
... doe doe doe ...
<% end_control %>

<% control Parent %>
// code in here is now working with the parent of the current page
<% end_control %>

Hope this helps,
