      Updating images in container fields

      Post

      Hello, I have a FMP application running under Windows. The application displays images in container fields. To make the app display the actual image instead of the file location, I had to paste the image into the corresponding container field. So far so good.

       

      However, when the app is fully used, there will be hundreds of images to display, and they will all be changed every month. Is there a way automate the image refresh of all the container fields? 

       

      Thanks.

          If you copy the picture from the clipboard into the Container field, you will not have a reference to the file.  If you Insert the picture, the file reference is kept.  Therefore, if you have a new picture that overwrites the old filename, FileMaker will then display the updated image.
