I have a database table with a column of type BLOB. In this column I have inserted pictures. I simply want to know how to get the picture in the database to show up on a table. I searched around and nothing was of much help.
EDIT: I found a page that seems to talk about what I want to do, but all it says is that I need to “Simply define the Key to the Blob image” but I have no idea what that is, I get the feeling that it is a feature of Ignition, but it could also be a poorly worded reference to a foreign key/ primary key, nor can I find a page that will tell me. This is mentioned in the “image placeholders” section of the page, which seems to be what I want to do, but I can’t find anywhere that actually tells me how to do it. Here is the page I was looking at:
EDIT: After a lot of looking around I found out that the Image Placeholder and the “Key” are a part of the Report Designer, which is a part of the Report viewer. I do not believe that I want to create a Report viewer/ view, so this brings up my main question again. How do I display an Image that is stored in my DB as a BLOB?
EDIT: I just want to know how to display an image stored as a blob.
If there is any way I can make this easier for you, let me know. I want to help you help me.
