    I am creating a field control and would like to simply display the ID of the current content item being worked on (the item that is bound to the field control). I cannot find a reference to the content item anywhere in "this" or "container". Any ideas on how to get this?

    public class ControlUsage : FieldControl
        protected override void InitializeControls(GenericContainer container)
            this.TextBoxControl.Text = //CURRENT CONTENT ITEM ID???

    Hi Basem,

    I have studied our current implementation, but unfortunately there is no easy way to get the desired object's ID to display. You can use the OriginalContentID property for the item, however there is no suitable event to bind to, from which you can extract the temp version of the item.

    All the best,
