Hello FileMaker Community,

Here is an issue I am trying to resolve.

I am trying to display the contents of a container field with the contents being externally stored on the server via the web. I am getting back the data, but the container field is not displaying. I am confident that the URL is correct that is echoing back, however I am not seeing an image. I am using Chrome and IE to view the pages and I am not sure if I am missing a plug in or anything, I am absolutely clueless on why this does not work.....

Here is the code:


# create a new search transaction

$request = $fm->newFindCommand('$Layout');

$result = $request->execute();

#Check for errors

if (FileMaker::isError($result))


echo "<p>Error: " . $result->getMessage(). "</p>";



#Get the records and store the results in the $records array.

$records = $result->getRecords();

$record = $result->getFirstRecord();

// Display the container as an images.

echo 'Externally Stored File<br>Path: ' . $fm->getContainerDataURL($record->getField('container')) . '<br>';

echo '<img src="containerBridge.php?path=' . $fm->getContainerDataURL(urlencode($record->getField('container'))) . '">';

Please Help,

Thanks in Advance
