    Capturing the "File cannot be found" within a calculation

    PeterWindle

      Hello all,

       

      We're all familiar with container fields that have a reference to an image/file, when the file is removed/moved, you get the message in the container field indicating that the file cannot be found.

       

      This is great, except that I would like to display the image in calculation field and display a generic default icon if the image cannot be found.

       

      The question is, what do I use to trap the "Image cannot be found" condition?

       

      I have tried a number of things so far, but nothing I have tried seems to work...?!!

       

      I have tried VerifyContainer, isvalid, patterncount(field,"The file connot be found)

       

       

      This is using FileMaker 12...

       

      Am I simply barking up the wrong tree...?

      Any suggestions?
