Displaying pictures


This Discussion is public


I am simply trying to figure out how to display images in a form by pulling those images from entries in another form/database.  I sell work-trailers and have built a quote generator that pulls specs from one form, sales tax data from another, and I would like to pull images from a third form/database.  I have used lookups for the other data that I pull into the quote generator, but I am stumped when it comes to pulling and displaying images.

Is this what you are looking for?

Thank you for your reply.  That is what I am trying to accomplish.  I saw that post, but I don't understand where the images are being pulled from nor what type of field one uses to display an image.

The image is stored in another form. Basically, that form has a file upload field which is used for uploading pictures and another text field to name the picture (this could be anything. totally depends on the pictures e.g. product name, location name, ....etc)

Now in the 2nd form, the 1st dynamic field (dynamic drop-down field) is mapped to the text field in the first form so that user can choose a picture by its name. The 2nd dynamic field (dynamic list field) is mapped to the file upload. This field is not really field which you can edit. It is only for displaying purpose. But the important thing is it will reload everytime you change the first field.

Sujeevan, thank you.  I think I see a faint light at the end of a long tunnel; I think I am starting to get it.  I appreciate your patience and expertise.
