    Auto enter value into container field

    MartinBridges

      If users insert an image in a container field I reduce the size of the file by using the auto-enter calc...

       

      GetThumbnail ( Self ; 600 ; 900 ) )

       

      which works a treat and reduces a 2GB file down to 200MB.

       

      However when its a pdf I get "?" in the container field. Which I gather is an issue in FM13 (FM12 and FM 14 allows thumbnails of pdfs). But I'm not too concerned about that as only a few are pdfs.

       

      So what I want to do is if it's a pdf, then insert the original pdf, and if it's NOT a pdf then GetThumbnail.

       

      So I did the following, which doesn't work. It inserts a thumbnail of any image ok but I still get a "?" with a pdf

       

      If ( PatternCount ( File_Name ; "pdf" )  = 1; "" ; GetThumbnail ( Self ; 600 ; 900 ) )

       

      Any suggestion gratefully received

      Thanks
