[TYPO3-english] How do you generate a menu where every menu item has its own image, using DAM?

I took a bit of time to reproduce locally the setup I had at the time I 
used this and it's not working for me either anymore.

Toying a bit further I remembered using a function straight from the DAM 
for this. And indeed it can work, but only if you have a single file 
referenced. Try using:

NO.before.cObject.file.import.cObject = USER
NO.before.cObject.file.import.cObject {
	userFunc = tx_dam_tsfe->fetchFileList
	refTable = pages
	refField = tx_dampages_files

If you have several files, the DAM method will return them in a single 
string, comma-separated. So it's still probably possible to work it out, 
by working some more TS magic using split in a further stdWrap.
