image controls: can be bound to text database columns, interpreting their content as relative link to the image i91310 feature-info:
Image controls in database forms can now be bound to text columns. Formerly, you could only bind them to columns whose content could reasonably be interpreted as binary (BLOB etc.). Now, when you select a text database column as source for the image control, then it will interpret the content of the respective column's content as URL, and load and display the image pointed to by this URL. Also, the URL might be relative to the document which the image control is embedded into.
I was looking at that before I posted, but there's 2 things. Those macros were written before the 3.1 update, and now with 3.1 I can have a text field that stores the path and retrieves the images without the macro (scroll down to the bottom of the thread). I've got that up and running no problem. The other thing missing from that macro is the part that retrieves the text from the "scientific name" field and pastes that into the file path.
