Method for uploading multiple images by passing database field value
How Can we bulk upload images into a Crystal Report in run-time ? We use Crystal 2013 to generate our reports in an ERP system.
1) User will upload multiple images into an ERP system for a Sales Order (for example: 5 images uploaded for Sales Order 12345)
2) All the image locations are stored in the database (SQL Server)
3) Requirement -> Based on the Sales Order field(Image location) value -> When we run a report in the system, the following should happen
They should be in the form of either:
a) 1 photo required (centre justified)
b) 2 photo’s required (side by side)
c) Both a and b
Also, how can we specify the defaults when displaying multiple images on the crystal?
i) Picture format (Portrait/Landscape)
ii) Dimensions(Width, Height), Scaling
iii) Re-sizing, Cropping
Please let me know if there is any method in Crystal for uploading multiple images or Is it too complicated?
