    Get Image from URL in FM6

    JulianJohnson

      Hi There,

       

      I have a client who is still running FM6 (long story!) and who has a table with field containing a URL to an image on a web server for each record. I need to be able to run script to run through a found set and download the image into a container field in the same record. It's not forever but for about a year untl he is able to migrate everything over to the latest version.

       

      Is there a plugin still around for Filemaker 6 that will do this? He's running on MacOS Snow Leopard.

       

      Thanks

      Jules

          Hi Jules,

           

          I don't know about plugins for this but I do have a suggestion.

           

          I assume the images are all in a folder with perhaps subfolders.

          If you import all the images from the folder into a separate db/table and capture the FileName and Path and Thumbnails as well as the image into separate fields on import, you should then be able to parse/calculate a path that matches the format of the one in the master database. You can then create an import to update the master image records matching the URLs.
