So i'm dealing with two tables.
in a VisitTable layout, i have one or two portals related to the GraphicsTable, each related by a different factor. One portal would be related by a Date field, the other would be a ClientName field..
My desire is to click on a thumbnail in either one of these portals, and have that selected image be displayed in a separate/larger image window (which could be a container field in the current table, Or another portal? I don't care how - i just need to have it show up)
I don't know the best method for doing this (ie., click thumbnail to have image fillin a separate location). In this particular instance, I don't want this to be a separate window, but to display in a container field view on the current window/layout.
how do I accomplish this?
I am trying to display an image (from disk) in a web viewer.
The following is the calculation entered into the web viewer (by means of a calculation):
data:text/html, <body> <p>Hello</p> <div> <img src="Maths_AS/Questions/q1.png" style="width: 700px"> </div> <p>Good-bye</p> </body> The text displays, but the img tag just produces a small box with an X.
When I use the following in a simple html file and display it using a browser (Firefox, Chrome), it displays correctly. In both cases the file references are relative; both the FMP file and the html file are stored in the same directory, from where the image is referenced.
<html> <head> </head> <body> <p>Hello</p> <div><img src="Maths_AS/Questions/q1.png" style="width: 700px"></div> <p>Good-bye</p> </body> </html> I am using Windows 10 Professional with FMP Advanced v.11.
I would be most grateful for some help here!
Thanks in advance

During and initial sync of ~5200 records from an 'images' table we received this error:
Oct 22, 2016 11:39:39 AM com.prosc.mirror.config.server.SyncServer$3 call
SEVERE: Sync between filemaker8.oda.state.or.us / BeFoodSafe5 (FileMaker Server) and kwiddicombe macOS Desktop BeFoodSafe( username 'developer', running ProAdvanced 15.0.2 on 10.0.1.199, ping time: 215 ms, machine name: 'Developer' )
Last sync failed: com.prosc.sync.AbortException: Failure while recording changes from FileMaker Server filemaker8.oda.state.or.us/SyncImages: 0
Ultimately we removed all records in the Images table and added them back to the spoke table 1000 at a time and were able to get them sync'd to the hub table.
We also routinely received this error but were able to sync again and complete the sync:

we updated from 3.1007 to 3.11 today, and uninstalled and reinstalled MirrorSync as well to no avail.

Hi all, thanks for your help in advance. I am sure there is an easy solution. I'm a self-taught beginner/intermediate user. I use Filemaker Pro 12 and sometimes 14 (depending on where I am working, home or university) on a mac.
PROBLEM: I am using a script to export the full size image (jpg) contents of all records for a particular container field. My problem is that they export as images within text files and I need the original unmodified jpg image. Specifically, they export as filetype "TextEdit Document".
My script uses "Export Field Contents", where I enter the container field followed by a semicolon and $Images. This sends the images to the desktop** just fine, only they are text docs--that's my problem. Note that the script also uses "Get ( DesktopPath )" to name the file, which includes essential details pulled from other fields in the record, such as the record's unique ID. The full script with Loop commands is visible in the attached screenshot.
So, how can I get the images to export as the jpgs they are? Thank you!!
**A separate issue if anyone has ideas!: I tried to get them to export to a particular output folder location on my computer, but I always get an error when I do this and try to export, so I stuck with the default $Images which sends them to the Desktop. Manageable but not ideal.
Disclaimer: I have worked with Filemaker for a few years, but I only have experience constructing simple scripts.
In the database I am working with, each of my records has an image container field where I enter .jpg files. I need to export these jpgs. Because there are thousands of records, I don't have time to export them one by one by right-clicking the container and choosing "Export Field Contents". I need to find a way to batch export the images from this container for all records.
I found this FM forum that seemed promising: http://help.filemaker.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5822/~/exporting-the-field-contents-of-a-container-field
And constructed the script from the instructions:
Go to Record/Request/Page [First]
Set Variable [$filePath; Value: Get ( DesktopPath ) MyPics::Description & ".jpg"]
Export Field Contents [MyPics::Picture; “$filePath”]
Go to Record/Request/Page [Next; Exit after last]
This script "works" for me, so I must have done something right, but it only exports the image from the active record. So, either I did something wrong or misunderstood how the script works. I assumed the loop would perform the script for all records from "first" to "last" but it did not.
Is there anyone out there who perhaps knows what I am doing wrong or knows of a better script I could use to perform this seemingly straightforward operation? I would be very grateful.
