As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

Does anyone know of a way to link to images in a Grid cell?

The Grid object being an ocx (aka active-x) control, I doubt that this will be possible.
You might get it to work with an htmltable object. One of the stack fields that you put into the htmltable should then contain the html-code to call the image.
Never tried it, but it may actually work.

I would have bet that this wasn't possible. And, I'm really not sure of the ramifications, but here is the code:

function OnButton1_Click ( ) {
index = Form1.Grid1.AddBitmap("c:/ibi/apps/appname/pic1.bmp");
Form1.Grid1.GetCell(1,1);
Form1.Grid1.SetColWidth(1, 300);
Form1.Grid1.SetRowHeight(1, 300);
Form1.Grid1.CellSetBitmap(index);
Form1.Grid1.SetCell(1,1);
Form1.Grid1.RedrawAll();
}

You use the AddBitMap command to get the image. I then resized the cells to make it look right and redrew the grid. The image DOES appear in a gridcell. It is a bit grainy and I am not sure if there is another way to resize it, but here is the jumping off point.

Thanks bud -- I missed the AddBitmap command in the help file.

Presumably I can use something other than the disk directory structure to reference it? I'm guessing that is just how you prototyped on your laptop.

I've done a lot of digging on tech support and on UG's site and it appears that referencing a bitmap on the server (which is likely the only useful thing to do given WF Maintain's architecture) is out of reach. All of the example source code shows only references to the local hard drive.

If anyone comes up with a solution to this I am all ears.

It is very limited but it does seem that you have to have the hard coded path to the drive. I tried APPROOT and server name without any luck. Sorry.

Is there anyway you could use an HTMLTable instead of a grid? I have techniques that allow you to make selections and additions into an HTMLTable. That handles images without a problem.

Also, we are working on replacing the old Active-X grid with a new JavaScript one, but this is still some time away til production.

For the moment I am committed to the grid for this app. I can change the look of my interface a bit and introduce a simulated text hot-link instead, but I had a column where a check mark would have been exceptionally useful.

I even tried referencing the server via a file:// connection but it did not take.

John,

Using a check box inside the grid cell may not be as pretty as a checkmark image, but it should work.

While I haven't used the grid cell check box feature, I have used the dropdown feature inside the cell and it works fine.

Perhaps you could find a check mark as a character in a font set, and eliminate the image issue.

But then, the issue would be if the font was available to all your applications users. Smiler
