Imaging Seminar FollowUp Upload Images   Link   Email

I have implemented the imaging seminar instructions, to handle displaying images outside the database by creating a field to the image path. Everything works great... until someone deletes the image in the folder. I need some error handling code for when the image is no longer found.  At the moment the database is just showing a debug error and stops everything else.

here the sub routine that handles the image:

Private Sub UpdateImage()

    If Not IsNull(ImageFileName) Then
        ProductImage.Visible = True
        ProductImage.Picture = ImageFileName
    Else
        ProductImage.Visible = False
    End If

End Sub

You can check to see if the file or folder exists.

The other strategy is when a user adds an image to the folder, it is copied up to the "server folder", as shown in the imaging seminar,  and you don't allow deletes.   You only allow a record to be marked as inactive and or require admin approval to delete an image.

Scott, I don't believe that is an option as too many people have access.  I think I need an error handling that displays some default image if the image file is missing and/or has been renamed.  This way reports that call the image based on the path don't just crap out when it can't find the image too.

Thanks for the help.  This was my fix, because I wanted to show an error picture if the original file name was changed or image deleted.

Private Sub UpdateImage()

    If Not IsNull(ImageFileName) Then
        ' Test image exists
     Dim DFE As String
     DFE = Dir(ImageFileName)
        If DFE = "" Then
            ProductImage.Visible = True
            ProductImage.Picture = "\\p7920\Shared Files\Pics\ERROR1.jpg"
        Else
            ProductImage.Visible = True
            ProductImage.Picture = ImageFileName
        End If
    Else
        ProductImage.Visible = False
    End If
    
End Sub
