I would like to take a picture in Filemaker go and have the Image name to be a Custom Name. Images are often Exported from the Solution and I would like a simple name to go with the Exported Image. Not the Native IOS format , i think its, Date& Device,&...
Problem: My current work around has 2 Containers using Base64 decode and encode to rename the Container. I end up having original container and a new renamed Container. I would only like to have 1 Container due to harddrive space.
I do want to use a 3rd party paid plug in.
I do not want to use a External Computer, and I would like it to be not in a script, so no;
Set Variable [ $file ; "file:" & get(documentspath) & "yourFileName" & ".jpg" ]
Export Field Contents
I understand that a script could run if the Solution was used a Desktop to Import of images. The imports could be flagged and run a script based off the flag data to rename. This is not what I'm looking to do.
My current Solution I have a button that Inserts from Device, a picture from the Camera, into a Container name "Photo Container"
That Container is Displayed on screen
I have a Calculation Type name "Extension" that Grabs the File Extension from the Image name;
a = GetContainerAttribute ( photo container ; "filename" ) ;
RightWords ( Substitute ( a ; "." ; ¶ ) ; 1 )
I have a 2nd Container Field named "Photo Container Rename" with the Following Calculation to changes the name and adds correct Extension. ID is Auto Enter Serial Type
Base64Decode ( Base64Encode ( photo container ) ;id&"." & extension)
This Solution gives me Two Images the Original and the Rename.
Due to hard drive Space I would like to have 1.
Suggestions? A Way to combine all my calculation fields into ONE the Original/First Container "Photo Container"?
Thanks in Advance
