Image control in a Background

Hi

I am trying to understand the usage of a image control when it is used in a
group background:

The issue: when I add a image from the IOS library to the BG image control
in the background it replaces the current card image and all other images
in all card backgrounds in the stack that uses that image control.

So, here is my question; when I set the special folder path and the card id
and put the last image in the control of that card ID on openCard, why
would it replace all of the images in all of the cards?
- Is there a special way to Set the image from the Photos folder in the
script?
- Can the image control be used in a group background?
- It was suggested to use a custom property to set the image for the image
control. But, I cannot find any examples of where to script the custom
control for this purpose.
- I read about the custom control, searched the dictionary, viewed all of
the RunRev lessons on using the image control, and the User Guide, the IOS
reference document. I still have not found the answer to the issue I need
to solve.

Thank you

Vaughn Clement
