Instead of using aplugin, setup a button called view image that's attached to a script.
Set the script to export the container field to a folder and open it:
Here's the script i use
Set Variable [$temppath; Value: Get ( TemporaryPath )]
Export Field Contents [Table::ContainerField; "filename'; Automatically open]
Once the field is exported it will open with the default program associated with the file type.
Sorry, I was away and could not reply earlier.
Thanks for you help.
Is there a simplier way rather than exporting it? I too have this problem. On my ipad the container opens by simply clicking it and selecting view. I previously used SuperContainer and you could just click it but with all the Java updates it routinely would not work unti a fix was done. Also FP container storage is so much better now.
If you are using FM12 all you have to do is in layout mode select your container field and your Inspector / Data tab down the bottom in Data Formating choose Optimize for "interactive content" make sure your container field size is big enoughto be able to view contents and scroll.
Pre FM12 you could achieve the same thing using a web viewer
I to am having the same issue. in FM11 MSWord, Excel files could be saved and simple opened via double clicking the container, for some reason I can't get this to happen in FM12 ADV.
