Was there an answer to this post? I’m interested to know, and also if there is a way to add an image to a form based on a call to a web service.

Hi Moona, you can add an image to a form using the ‘file attachment’ object, no need for a web service to do this. Also, there is a way to upload an image and pass it to another form. A practical example of this would be a form which holds many thumbnails which can be seen larger when the second form is opened.October 14, 2010 at 2:50 am #5453
Still no answer to tyrell’s question??October 15, 2010 at 4:58 pm #5459

There is no way to display a picture in a form by getting it from an external SQL database via a connection. However if you build an application that dynamically publishes those pictures on a web server and have that URL in the database along with the picture, the form can retrieve the URL and set it as a source for the picture object.
