PDF in container field shows as icon

In order to show a thumbnail of the first page of a pdf I defined a container as "static" on a layout. But a pdf-icon is shown in the application in instead of a thumbnail.


When I change the container to "optimized for interactive content" everything works. But this is not what I want, namely just a preview of the first page of the pdf.


The WebDirect manual says on page 17 : "By default, container fields are optimized for static content. Web users see either a static graphic or a link to the container field object."


I can not find where is specified what makes that the static graphic is shown or when the icon shown.


Application is on FileMaker server accessed by WebDirect.


Hope someone can help,
