Upload and display multiple pictures in a page
May I know how to create a layout that can upload and display multiple pictures? (example 20 pictures in a page)
You would create each picture as a container field.. pictures can only be stored in container fields.. Just simply place the container field on the layout and you can click in the container field to insert photo or put a button on the bottom to upload..
And you might want to use a single container field, in 32 related records to store those pictures. Single row portals can be used to display them in the "grid" like you show here.
what do you mean by "use a single container field"?
Thanks for the prompt response. :)
You can create a separate table with a container field .. Link them.. Then put a portal on the layout.. You can create multiple records.. One for each picture
sorry, I don't really get it. Do i need to create 32 container if I have 32 items?
No. You create 32 records. Each record has a single container field.
I have an inquiry regarding the attached picture.
I have created a long list of "Department" and "Category".
I would like to make user work easier by the category will just appear for that particular department after user select correct department.
For example: department will have FOOD, MEDICINE, BEVERAGES, TOYS, HOUSEHOLD etc
And for category, there is a long list of different types of FOOD, MEDICINE, BEVERAGES, TOYS, HOUSEHOLD etc
So, if user select FOOD department, only FOOD list will appear in the category.
Thank you for your post.
Showing only categories based on a department is possible. Rather than laying out the steps here, I recommend reading Knowledge Base Article #5833 "Creating conditional Value Lists":
Let me know if you need additional clarification.
Here are some more links on conditional value lists. The second link is the same one that TSGal has shared.
There's a lot of overlap between the first two links so you can read one and skim the other. The demo file gives you several examples of different conditional value lists so you can examine them to see how they are set up. If you are using FileMaker 12 or later, you can open this demo file from your File menu to get a converted copy of the demo file that you can examine in your version of FileMaker.
The next to last link discusses how to set up a chain of conditional value lists where the value selected in each conditional value list controls the values listed in the next value list and the very last link is a fairly new addition that describes how to use ExecuteSQL to produce conditional value lists that aren't easily possible with the other methods described here.
