Has someone Testdatabase with extra database for images available?
There are info's here how to manage that, but I am not capable enough
to develop such a database. Do not see it in the gallery.
I need database with attached foto for each record.

Go to the HanDBase web page, not the forum.

Go down and look for the "Free Downloads" and go there.
Do a "Keyword" search for "Flash Cards"

Go down that list and check out the "Flash Cards Photo"
It is a zip file with the PDB file, and the form file and a text file that explains some things. So download it on your desktop and then get it to your device.

With a little tweaking of the names on the forms you can use it for anything.
While in the database, ask to take a photo associated with information,
or use a photo from your camera roll, etc.

Let me know if you need help.

Wel we are about 11 years further in time after HanDBase mentioned they had to work on the field
that should bring us to the photoimage connect with the used record.
I have used it in the Palm days but still impossible In Android.
But I need some photo's connect with HandBase records!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There where suggentions on the forum for this but I did not work for me.
So dump HanDBase and look for the app that has the photo field working?
No not yet because I work many years with HanDBase and know how to handle it most of the Time.
So this morning I tried a simplistic approach.
I added the Unique field, that generates a ascending unique number to every record.
Even when I later remove records, only the unique number of that record is remove the other
records keep there unique number. I write down the unique number of the record where the
photo must be with connected.

Now I switch to to the camera take the foto. I go to the installed "Galleij app"
Select the photo and store it in the special made Map HanDBase photos.

I have to rename the Photo from for example IMG_2021100409-142254336.jpg to IMG_48
48 is the unique field number.
I can make a lot of photos in that map and find easyly the desired photo with entering the
unique fieldnumer in the search function. Even more photos can be connect to that field
by give them the number 48-1, 48-2 etc.

So at last I have a (complex) method to connect a photo to a HanDBase record.
Not so nice perhaps, but after weating for more then 10 years on Dave's solution
you have to do something to solve the problem.

Are ther others who have a more direct method to solve the Photo field problem?
