Image Data from Livecode

Post by mayfair » Thu Oct 22, 2015 3:16 pm

Good day,

I have seen similar threads but no recent ones and no information on how to "send" an image to quartam reports. I generate QRCodes in my app. I want to print the qrCode related to a record but I cannot send that data to Quartam. Has this been addressed or is there a workaround for it?

Thank you

Hi Nic,

The current solution is to use a field and craft together an htmlText which uses <img src="555000"> to embed an image by name.
That image can be stored in a temporary stack, where LiveCode should be able to find it.

Quartam Reports 2.0 will have the ability to use not only static image paths but also dynamic image paths.
Your question is not so uncommon, so if I find the time, I'll see if I can include a way to use image data so that you wouldn't have to store the image in a temporary file on disk.

Best regards,

Jan Schenkel.
