I'm migrating from 6i
I have some images to display, let's say logos and such, which in c/s I loaded with read_image_file into an image_item.
Now, in the 11g version, I've put all that logos in a jar, as the read_image_file is now relative to the weblogic server, not the forms client.
So, I'm changing this code:
Read_Image_File ('H:\mypath\logos\mylogo.tif', 'TIFF', 'block.image_item1');
synchronize; -- now this is neccesary
Read_image_file (file_name => 'aenor.gif', file_type => 'url', item_name => 'BLOQUE.LOGO1');
after converting my logo to gif and putting it inside a jar (which I load properly in formsweb.cfg).
I see the image, but,
If I set sizing style property to adjust, the image appears very tiny inside the image_item .
If I set that property to crop, the image crops as expected (the gif is bigger than the item).
Any hint or workaround (other than resizing the gif)?
The URL option does not support scaling.
Consider what Francois suggested in this other post: Display an static image
