Importing pictures to Paradox

Importing pictures to Paradox

Importing pictures to Paradox

(OP)
Hi,

is there any way to import picures from jpg-files and into a Paradox table?

With Regards

RE: Importing pictures to Paradox


What version of Paradox are you using?

Many .jpg files can be used by Paradox, but not all.

I believe support stops at 24 bit, but it may be overall resolution.

Are you looking for manual import, or programmatic?

Tony, thank you for responding.

I use Paradox 9.0 and want to do it programmatic. If its impossible programmatic I can do it manually as well.

You can fancy it up with filebrowser, or place within a scan for multiple images, but the below is the bottom basics.

CODE

var
  tc    tcursor
  gr    graphic
endvar

if not tc.open(":alias:tablename.db") then
  errorshow()
  return
endif
tc.edit()
if gr.readfromfile("drive:\\fullpath\\image.jpg") then
  tc.insertrecord()
  tc."graphic_fieldname"=gr
  try
    tc.unlockrecord()
  onfail
    errorshow()
    tc.canceledit()
  endtry
endif
tc.endedit()
tc.close()
