In this post, we will talk about how to capture an image using the camera and store it in the FileMaker database. Previously in Windows tablet there is no option to capture the image and store it inside FileMaker.
Initially, we need to create a FileMaker database and place two buttons in a layout. One button is used to open the camera and another button is used to store the captured image in the database.
Step 1 : Create a FileMaker database.
- Create a FileMaker database named “Capture_And_Store_Image”.
- Create a table with a container field and place two buttons named “Capture image” and “Store Image” as given in the below image.
Step 2 : Create a script for “Capture Image” button.
- Open the Script workspace and create a new script named “Capture Image”.
- In the “Capture Image” script enter the following “Send Event” script step to open the camera in the machine as given in the below image.
Step 3 : Create another script to “Store Image” button.
- Before creating the script, create a Batch file to move the latest captured image in the defined folder as given in the following image.
- Now create a script named “Store Image” using the “Send Event” script step run the batch file as given in the below image.
- Now the last captured image is stored in the specified folder as mentioned in the batch file, using the “Insert Picture” script step insert the image into the container from the specified folder in the FileMaker database.
If we implement the above mentioned steps, then we can able to capture the image using a camera and store the captured image in FileMaker database.
