Images from BLOBs

Gen 8.5 introduces the ability to define BLOB (binary large object) attribute views and to store and retrieve them from the database. Rapide has been enhanced to allow images stored in blob views to be displayed on the window design, either as single images or as columns in a listbox.

A future enhancement to our mobile API will allow a picture taken on the device camera to be stored in a BLOB view as well.

How would your application benefit from the ability to dynamically display graphical and image data with the images stored in the database or dynamically loaded from image resource files? Let us know!
