Hi Jim, my heartfelt condolences because of your deceased MacBook Pro, especially. as the same happened to mine at the beginning of this year. A real pain in the backside to restore everything to a new computer, strings, serials, etc.
Right now I am struggling to make a picture database work and although I follow the instructions given in “240 Image Display” I just can’t make it work. Maybe you can help without your laptop as well, if not, I’ll wait patiently until you get it.
I have a photo hardware database which I converted from Pro 6. There it worked for a long time without problems. In Pano X I made a new form “Big Pix” where the images of the hardware are supposed to appear.
I created an “Image Display” object in this form and in its Formula window I put:
"/Users/isza/Documents/primary Docs ƒ/Photo/Photohardware ƒ/Photohardware-jpgs ƒ/"+BIG PIX
which is the full pathname + the field BIG PIX which contains the individual image titles in each record,
e.g. AsaPentax LX 53497.jpg or AgfIsolette I35944.jpg
The folder Photohardware-jpgs ƒ is in the same folder Photohardware ƒ as the Pano X database, so this full pathname would not even be necessary, but it won’t work neither with the full pathname nor with the shortened one.
The image titles are one-of-a-kind, there is no repetition there.
What am I doing wrong?
