    I'm creating some controls for my site by following this document http://www.sitefinity.com/help/developer-manual/controls-adding-controls-to-sitefinity.html and so far so good. I've done several so far, now, I want to take to the next level, meaning, when my users click the edit button on the backend, I want to give the ability to add an image and have a multilne textbox instead of the basic textbox that is there by default.

    So, how can I allow them to add an image?
    how can I have it be a multilne textbox instead of the regular textbox?

    I was actually looking at that and trying to figure out how to implement the image portion of it.

    I'm able to add a link via the control designer, however, what do I need to reference to give the ability to add an image from an existing library or upload a new image? I've tried several things and so far no luck
