Finding record or container field size
Is there a function or other way to determine the size (bytes, KB etc.) of the data in a container field? Alternatively the size of an individual record would be fine as well.
If the data is inserted directly into the field (not store by reference) and not inserted as an object, Length ( containerfield ) will return the number of bytes.
If it is anserted by reference as a picture, getvalue ( ContainerField ; 1 ) will return the size of the picture in pixel x pixel format.
