How do u save an image in a record. So as each record in a file can have  a different image to help the user to confirm that the correct grass has been found.

RE: saving images

Hi Foxstudent,
  Check out the APPEND GENERAL command in the help file.

FWIW, and this is only my preference, but I never use General fields. If I have a need to reference an outside file for each record, i.e. an image,spreadsheet,etc., then instead of using a General field to store the actual object, I use a memo field to store the path to the file.

RE: saving images

Hi Foxstudent,

I fully support Jon in saying the best way to handle graphic and other such files is through a reference to an outside file.

You could try the Kodak Image Edit Control as an alternative means of displaying your images.

It's scrollable with a zoom facilty, will flip, rotate, print etc.

Documentation is sparse but there is a downloadable example at the UniversalThread website in the files section, under the title of "Wang" or similar.
