Auto enter value into container field

Question asked by MartinBridges on Apr 17, 2016

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

Martin
