  1. Hello, We have a solution to store pictures(JPEG and NEF) from a photographer. I am trying to mass import the raw files(.NEF) into containers but I have an error message saying 'This file could not be translated using the selected file type'. It is possible to drag and drop or File->Insert the file into the container directly but I can't import them from the folder. Is this impossible to import files from folder with extensions other than the basic ones? (jpeg, pdf, jpg, png etc) Thanks!
  2. I have a simple contact solution with just a table. I need to import my contacts pictures from a folder. All pictures have been named using an ID, which matches the ID field on the contact table. Please how do Import these photos so as to match the ID field . I am familiar with importing from csv and excel files but not this one. Thanks.
  3. Hi, I am trying to develop a simple POS but I am struggling with getting the standard layout for this kind of developments. Basically would I would like to achieve is to create a panel that would show the pictures of all products available, and when clicking on any of the pictures, the related item will go into the invoice_line_item. I have seen this functionality not only for POSs, but also to show all attachments related to one account. There were a button that says "add new attachment" and when added into the container, it will show in order in grid style panel situated just above. I have been able to create such a panel with individual buttons created from 1:1 portal which shows only one specific id_product related picture. However, since each button should have its own script I am finding it challenging when trying to do it for more than 100 products. So my question would be if there is any build-in feature that would show the content of a container on a clickable grid panel. The importan thing here should be that if a new product /record is created, its picture (container field) should be added to that panel, in oder words, the panel is feed automatically each time I add a new product. Any ideas how to do this? I am attaching a picture of someone else work that shows something similar to what I would like to learn how to do. Thanks a lot!!! docasar.
  4. Posting Barcodes

    Hello Forum, I'm working on a solution that runs through WebDirect so users with devices other than iPhones can view and make changes to the database. However, they need to be able to input barcodes straight from the camera of the phone. We are using the "Insert from Device" function for devices using Filemaker Go, but I haven't been able to find an equivalent (or end user friendly) alternative for WebDirect. The closest we've come is using a BarCode scanner app, copy the digits, and paste them in the field. Is there any script or setup that will allow us to link the field to the devices barcode scanning app so that the scanned barcode populates the field? Thanks in advance!
  5. I have a table of pictures related to jobs, and currently I have a layout where my users add a record and they insert a picture into the container field. This works fine, but the process is slow, as they must add each picture one at a time. Is there a way to do a multi-select of pictures from the Camera Roll to add multiple pictures at once?
  6. I've got a layout for a report with long text fields, so those fields slide up to get rid of the white vertical space between them. At the end of the report there is a portal that displays a bunch of pictures related to the current record. Because of the sliding fields, the portal may start at any position of the page, and very often this means that one of portal pictures will be cut by a page break. Is there a way to control that a portal row doesn't get split between different pages? Thanks!
  7. One of my tables has a container with pictures in it. The pictures (mostly .jpg not that it matters) all showed up just fine. I moved them to external un-encrypted storage and now the container shows the file but not the picture. If I close the DB on the server and open the DB locally the pictures all show up correctly. Once I mount the DB with the server, all clients see the file in the container but not the picture. Any new records/pictures added show up just fine. I would like to get all the records to show the files as a picture like it was before I moved them. Note: I’ve done this with two other containers in different tables and they maintained their picture status. Don’t know why this one acted differently but I need to fix it. Thanks for any help,
  8. Hi, I inserted hundreds of pictures to my database but forgot to check the "store only a reference to the file" box. Now my database has a 10GB size. :-( Is there a simple way to change all those pictures "status" (from embedded to referenced) in a single move or do I have to delete each individual picture and insert it again as a reference?
