Inputting Graphics

Postby jackeagles » Sun Jun 09, 2013 10:53 am

Hi there:

I have recently purchased the HanDBase App and the Forms App Add-on for my Iphone. The database I am creating is a very simple one. However I cannot figure out how to add a grahic/picture field to the properties section.

I am using this app as a product description database and would like to have a pic of each of the products with each record.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jack

Hi Jack,

Thanks for your purchase and your post! The Picture field is actual part of the External field and not it's own field type, so that's where you can easily miss it. You can select an External field type and you'll see options for Photo Picker or Camera fields. In both cases, we don't store the image within the single database file, but rather a file name gets stored in a text field and the external field lets you display and/or retake the photo.

There are two tutorials that may be helpful to you:

Hope that helps!

Hello Dave:

Thank you very much. Your explanation was more than enough to enable me to figure it out. Thanks again (although I am quite sure this will not be my last post!).
