Could anyone please point me in the right direction to a tutorial or guidance on the following:
How to store images in a TPS file
How to display those images on a form
How to display and update an image each time a new selection in the browse list box is made.
I’ve had a look at storing an image in a BLOB from the help file topic but I’m clearly doing something wrong as I can’t confirm whether the image is being stored in the file. I am able to use the DosFileLookup to update an Image control, but it seems the passing of the image into the BLOB and subsequent retrieval is where I’m going wrong.
I did also take a look on YouTube to see if there was anything there but couldn’t find anything relevant on the search results.
I used BLOB’s many years ago to store images but I discovered quickly that managing images size (size in bytes) became very important due to TPS file size limitations. I used, and still use, Clarion FreeImage to resize images just in case the user tries to upload a huge file. Anyway, just something to consider.
