Versions 6.8.x and 2003.x
Here is an example on how to dynamically display a picture on a web page.
1. Create a method that puts a picture into a blob and send the blob to the web browser.
` Method: ShowPicture
GET PICTURE FROM LIBRARY(861;$Picture)
PICTURE TO GIF($Picture;$xGif)
SEND HTML BLOB($xGif;"image/gif")
Note: In this example, the picture is extracted from the Picture Library.
2. Insert an img tag that calls the above method in the HTML file.
Once the HTML file is sent from 4D using the command SEND HTML FILE, the picture will appear on the web page.
` Method: SendHTML
SEND HTML FILE("File.html")
Note: despite the use of PICTURE TO GIF, QuickTime does not need to be installed on the machine.
