Check box to add picture

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a check list in Excel and I want to create it in filemaker 8 adv.

I thinkt the check boxes would be a good choice. Depending on the check box I would like to have more than onle text showing up on the print layout.

Is it possible that a selected check box let a picture appear in the print layout?

Thanks,

Welcome to the Forums,

Yes, it is possible to display text or images by selecting a checkbox.

Create a text field, ShowImage_t, formatted with an attached value list as a checkbox.

Create a global field (container), Image_cg, to store the image to be displayed.

Create a calculation (container) field, DisplayImage_cc, to display the image if the value of the checkbox text field is true.

DisplayImage_cc = Case( ShowImage_t = "Yes" ; Image_cg )

To do the same with text, remove the value list formatting from the field and it will show the value selected in the checkbox.

Mark,

thanks for your fast response!

As you can I'm a very beginner!

I tried your solution and somehow I can get it to work. My guess is that I can not follow your step with my knowledge.

Would it be possible to send me a small file or break down the step a little bit further.

Thanks a lot!

ShowImage_cc is a calucation field. It can only use the calculated result. To add a different image to the Image_cg field, use the Insert menu items or right click on the field and select the appropriate option.

For more information, review the Help system on field types.
