    URL Syntax for Access to Container Objects




      I am using CWP with FileMaker PHP API, I am trying to get image from container field.


      I am using containerBridge.php



      * ContainerBridge.php




      include 'dbcon.php';


      if (isset($_GET['path'])){

              $url = $_GET['path'];

              $url = substr($url, 0, strpos($url, "?"));

              $url = substr($url, strrpos($url, ".") + 1);

              if($url == "jpg" || $url == "jpeg"){

                  header('Content-type: image/jpeg');


              else if($url == "gif"){

                  header('Content-type: image/gif');


              else if($url == "png"){

                  header('Content-type: image/png');


              else if($url == "pdf"){

                  header('Content-type: application/pdf');



                  header('Content-type: application/octet-stream');





      echo $fm->getContainerData($_GET['path']);




      $url = urlencode($record->getField('Profile_Img'));

      <img src='containerBridge.php?path=".$url."'>


      But not able to show the image at all.


      URL return without urlencode()



      I also try to run it directly in the server with


      It return 404

      FileMaker Server has encountered an error:

      The requested resource is not available.



      PHP is enable

      XML is enable


      Login that I use have the privilege of php and xml


      Container field store as external(open)


      I don't know what is missing.

      I have another server Implementing the samething, and it work perfectly.  


        • 1. Re: URL Syntax for Access to Container Objects

          getField() encodes special chars regardless of field type, so you'd need another function as


          $url = urlencode($record->getFieldUnencoded('Profile_Img'));


          But it looks both worked. getContainerData() seems allowing invalid URL. (like -db=filename&amp;-lay=...)


          Does the record have "noimg.jpg" as content?


          Your show.php is quoted too short but if there is no line between the 2, it is incorrect.

          $url = urlencode($record->getField('Profile_Img'));

          //here should be echo command with starting quote...

          <img src='containerBridge.php?path=".$url."'>
