Has anyone come up with a good solution for storing and recalling/displaying images that doesn't involve system.file.readFileAsBytes() ? We are currently using a very similar system to the one discussed in the below thread from 2012:
That is to say, we just store and recall the varbinary data using an SQL Server table. But I am finding this is really slow and seems kind of archaic. Another thread I found online recommended using Azure file storage along with SQL Server. Can I just get Ignition to save an image file directly into a drive folder and recall it as needed using the filepath? Or is that impossible / bad practice?
I'm also wondering about snapping pics using a phone camera directly within a Perspective app. I could only find info on the file upload component in Android; nothing for iOS. Our employees have iPhones and Androids so I want a solution that works for both.
This is for things like maintenance/service requests, safety alerts, and so on.
