Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

    Here is the project for anyone to try. The two images are in the zip file, but not necessarily in the right folder for publishing.

    Re: Image Reference File Question (Web Reports)

    Well I'm embarassed, but I cannot get it to work. I've copied my image files to my where my data resides, what is referenced with [PathAlias.ADB_Path].

    I went remote to my server, opened the table and corrected the filenames to point to the images that did appear in my data location. I had to correct the filenames because my local system has a different folder structure as my server. But the images now appear in the table, on the server. Then I run the report and get just the field name where the images should appear.

    It works on the local system, it works published to Localhost, it does not work on the server. My version is not current, but it is past the 1923-3234 patch that updated how image reference fields behaved on the web.

    I see it, a series of header graphics! By the way, since this is on the ATG Web Template, did I give you the update that lets you put a different header image on each page?

    The code:
    Code:
    dim filter as c 
    dim order as c 
    Filter = ".T."
    Order = ""
    Dim filename as c 
    filename = session.session_folder + "tempreport.pdf"
    filename = report.saveas("web_banners@[PathAlias.ADB_Path]\web_banner_text.ddd","pdf",filter,order,filename,.f.)
    if file.exists(filename) 
    	currentform.RedirectTarget = session.session_url + "tempreport.pdf?" +  time("hms3")
    end if

    As for the error the temp.pdf does not clear - need to take a look.

    Give it a go now - I've restarted the WAS.

    Nothing special about th code all from the genie.

    Open your table, right click the image, see where it points to, if it's not in or under the data table folder it won't work.

    I get an error when I run the report, but I believe you. Can you just send me the table/report/dialog involved in this. I can't get it to work and its a vital last step of a near complete project.

    Yep it works...

    http://117.74.99.4/wt_ozsaver/web_sample.a5w


    The above is a report that has a field called image from a table. The images in the image reference field are located in the:
    webroot\Project_Name.WebProjects\default.WebProjects\images\banners

    Location

    I don't see that this fixed anything. I still cannot get an image to appear in a PDF report when run on a WAS server. It works at localhost, not on the server. Has anyone made this work?

    We had added a fix and it should be in the next release build. You can now have the same image in the grid and detail without any problems. If you use image file reference fields, we also found a problem. If you didn't specify an alias for the image path in the component, the system might not find the linked image if it was in the database folder or a subfolder under the data. The system now will add the alias to the database folder as a default. If you specifed a full path in the image file reference, that will still work.

    Jerry Brightbill
    Great news! I had wondered why there were problems with our news pages until I realised it was to do with the same image being used twice in a grid.
