On a form, I would like to display the gif activated. I have created a container field and dropped the gif in. When the form is open, it shows the name of file but no contents and animation. What am I doing wrong?
Do you set the container field as "interactive"?
But I saw same image not animate sometime.
As far as I know, Filemaker container fields do not support animated gif files.
One alternative could be to place your animated gif onto a web page, copy the web page url, and then use the web viewer tool to place the object where you want it on your layout and paste the url into the web viewer, you will then see your animate gif playing.
Yes, I never heard that is supported, but I wonder doing it partially worked. It is not so surprising since PDF is showed in container using browser plug-in, but gif?
You can view container contents with web viewer using data: URL, don't need web page.
correct! here are some links with more information on how-to (both of these are frequent posters on this forum!):
Thanks, Mike Duncan!
