Mediapicker Field - alternative text

Topics: Customizing Orchard
Oct 13, 2011 at 4:42 PM


When using a mediapicker field, the user can browse the media library and select and image.  At the same time they can enter a piece of text for the alternative text for that image.

Is there a way to get the value of the alternative text for an image that has been chosen with a mediapickerfield? It only seems to expose URL and Name fields.

I could add another textbox field but don't really want to do that.
