    I have created a new module and I'm having an Image Field where I'm allowing back-end users to publish multiple images for one item, and it is a very nice feature, and I'm trying to modify the list template "Using Thunder" or by editing it in the back end, and I want to display with the list only one image or the first image from the image list, but with the full item content I want to keep all images, what I have to change instead of this:

    <sf:ImageGalleryAssetsField runat="server" DataFieldName="Image" ImageGalleryMasterViewName="ImagesFrontendThumbnailsListLightBox" />

    Also is there any place that I can deeply understand how to modify the template?
    I know it a user control, but I want more information about Sitefinity "sf:....." controls and controls properties?

    Ok I found one way to do it using code refernce "Integration example for <MyNewModule>", where I need to creat a custome user control, using Thunder:

    // ~/DisplayItems.ascx
    <%@ Control Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="DisplayItems.ascx.cs" Inherits="SitefinityWebApp.DisplayItems" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" %>
    <!-- ScriptManager or RadScriptManager is required by RadGrid, but this tag probably already exists on the Master Template -->
    <!-- <telerik:RadScriptManager ID="RadScriptManager1" runat="server" /> -->
    <telerik:radgrid id="Grid" runat="server" autogeneratecolumns="False">
                <telerik:gridboundcolumn datafield="Title" headertext="Title">

    // ~/DisplayItems.ascx.cs
    using System;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Model;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicModules;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Data.Linq.Dynamic;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicModules.Model;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.Utilities.TypeConverters;
    using Telerik.Sitefinity.GenericContent.Model;
    namespace SitefinityWebApp
        public partial class DisplayItems : System.Web.UI.UserControl
            protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                // Fetch a collection of "live" and "visible" MyNewModule items.
                var myCollection = GetDataItems();
                // Binds the collection of Person items to the RadGrid
                Grid.DataSource = myCollection;
            // Gets a collection of "live" and "visible" MyNewModule items.
            public IQueryable<DynamicContent> GetDataItems()
                DynamicModuleManager dynamicModuleManager = DynamicModuleManager.GetManager();
                Type MyNewModuleType = TypeResolutionService.ResolveType("Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model.WNews.MyNewModule");
                // Fetch a collection of "live" and "visible" MyNewModule items.
                var myCollection = dynamicModuleManager.GetDataItems(MyNewModuleType)
                    .Where(i => i.Status == Telerik.Sitefinity.GenericContent.Model.ContentLifecycleStatus.Live && i.Visible == true);
                return myCollection;

    is there any other way? by modifying list template?
