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.

    searching and studying past posts, (this is my first attempt at images,) the following script works, up to the point of assigning "result" to the image reference object.


    dim this_path as C
    dim bare_path as C
    dim app_path as C
    dim shadowed as L
    this_path=:a5.Get_Path()
    bare_path=:a5.Get_Master_Path()
    if len(alltrim(bare_path)) = 0 then 'if zero, not shadowed
    shadowed =.F.
    app_path = this_path + chr(92)
    else
    shadowed =.T.
    app_path = bare_path + chr(92)
    end if
    result=ui_get_image_filename(app_path + "bellimages\overall\\")
    ui_msg_box("","" + result) 'this displays the correct path and image
    if result "" ""
    parentform:overall.value=result 'this bombs
    end if
    end

    RE: image reference file

    Hi Martin

    This is a script I use to automatically link up 2 image ref fields with saved image filenames in records.
    Works well.
    There may be something in here that you can use.
    Scott Emerick supplied me with the makings of it

        When you say "It Bombs", what exactly happens?

          RE: image reference file

          It doesn't save anything (the field is an image referrence field):

          all I'm basically trying to do is control the path/folder it opens, given the form and object. I am having them save all images as jpg's to specific folders


          here is an amended script, but for some reason it is no longer displaying the jpegs in the folder - and I have to then browse to get them (I think it wants to use bmp's)

          parentform.allow_change(.t.)
          dim app_path as C
          dim shadowed as L
          this_path=:a5.Get_Path()
          bare_path=:a5.Get_Master_Path()
          if len(alltrim(bare_path)) = 0 then 'if zero, not shadowed
          shadowed =.F.
          app_path = this_path + chr(92)
          else
          shadowed =.T.
          app_path = bare_path + chr(92)
          end if
          result=ui_get_image_filename(app_path + "bellimages\overall\\")
          ui_msg_box("","" + result)
          if result "" ""
          t=table.current()
          fld=t.field_get("overall")
          fld.value_put(result)
          end if
          parentfom.commit()

              RE: image reference file

              Scott, just before you posted, I got it to work with this - virtually your script. (The reason the jpgs weren't showing up was because I was in a Copy of the ADB and the paths were no longer correct.) Thanks ever so much.

              within the app folder I hav a folder bellimages with several folders within that - as there will too many jpegs to manage in a single folder - this lets me direct them automatically to the correct folder - saves them the trouble of having to browse, and makes for fewer opportunities to get the wrong images.
