Integrating/Calling Image files on applications.

Integrating/Calling Image files on applications.

  
Hi Everyone,

I need help on integrating/calling image files into my application. These images are pictures of my applications end-users, i wanted to display the pictures alongside the information of the user.

I'm thinking of adding a "picture_path" field to my personnel table and this will contain the complete directory and filename of the user's picture saved on the same server where my application is hosted. 

Is this possible in outsystems? Or is there a better approach I can take?

Thanks!


 
Hi Ellery,

The best way to do that is to have an entity to store the images in the database. The identifier of that entity can be of type "Personnel identifier". (So you don't even have to modify the personnel table)
Then in your screen use a image widget with type "database".

Also, if you download the Directory App you have an example of how to achieve this.
