    Default How to set default for Picture - Image File Reference

    I've looked at similar message, but don't see the answer to this question.

    When you click on the small icon in the upper right corner of the picture (IFR) field, to select the picture, I want to set the default folder to open for selection.

    I've tried setting it in field rules, but without success. I have a variable, var->Pictures, that sets the folder I want to open when selecting a picture.

    Thanks ~ Tom

    Hi Tom:

    If you're clicking on a picture in an IFR field, then the file reference is already saved, but perhaps not in the default location where you want it to be. Maybe tell us a little more about how the picture got saved into that record in the first place.

    Hi Finian,

    Thanks for the response. It suggested the answer. I simply added a default picture, "No file Uploaded.jpg" from the default picture folder. Its only when the field is blank that when I click on the picture icon, it may or may not open the default folder.

    Hope all is going well for you.

    This problem caused me all sorts of grief, Tom.
    Finian came to the rescue with a different approach using Bitmaps instead.
