Hi fellows

My form contains an image-item, that I want to fill with pictures out of the Windows file-system. The simple way ( copy picture with CONTROL-C and then paste it into the image-item with CONTROL-V ) is already working. Now I want to read the picture-file directly into the item using the READ-IMAGE-build-in and use the Windows-file-browser to get the path and name of the picture-file.
The question is : How can I activate the file-browser in my form and how do I get the filename back ?

Thanks in advance ... Enno

use the following code, I guess you are talking about file dialog window.

** Built-in: GET_FILE_NAME
** Example: Can get an image of type TIFF.
*/
DECLARE
filename VARCHAR2(256)
BEGIN
filename := GET_FILE_NAME(File_Filter=> 'TIFF Files (*.tif)|*.tif|');
READ_IMAGE_FILE(filename, 'TIFF', 'block5.imagefld);
END;
