    How to see pictures in containers when my database has been transfered on File Maker Go ?

    ebee75

      Bonjour,

      je n'arrive pas à visualiser mes photos sur mon Ipad (FileMager Go 15) alors que tout fonctionne sur mon PC :-(

      J'ai essayé plein de manière différentes mais ça ne fonctionne jamais (photo dans le container, lien externe, import etc...).

      Il s'agit tout de même de 900 photos spécifiques (une collection de cartes postales) que je ne veux pas mettre dans l'outil "Photos" de IOS...

      Idéalement, j'aimerais avoir un dossier spécifique sur mon Ipad et que ma base aille piocher la photo et l'affiche directement dans le container qui contient une rubrique avecle nom de la photo...

      Comment faire SVP ?

      Merci d'avance de votre réponse...

      Eric B.

      Hello,
      I can not view my photos on my iPad (FileMkaer Go 15) when everything works well on my PC :-(
      I tried many different ways but it never works (photo in the container, external link, import etc ...).
      It is still 900 specific images (a collection of postcards) I do not want to put in the tool "Photos" for iOS ...
      Ideally I would have a specific folder on my iPad and my base to go pick the picture and displays it directly into the container which contains a section with the name of the photo ...
      How to do please ?
      Thank you in advance for your response...

          Thank you for your post.

           

          If you are going to put a file on your iPad, make sure you first save the file as a self-contained copy, and then copy the new file onto your iOS device.  This is because FileMaker Go cannot read database files that store data externally.

           

          For more information, see the FileMaker Go Development Guide at:

           

          FileMaker Go 15 Development Guide

           

          Expand the section "About file transfers", and look at the paragraph beneath "Transferring a file with container fields that store data externally."  It says,

           

          "To transfer a file with container fields that store data externally, you must first embed the container field data. In FileMaker Pro, use the Save a Copy As command and choose self-contained copy (single file). Then transfer the copy, not the original file."
