Can LotusScript be used to import a picture into a document so that when the document is opened you see the both the picture (not just a link) and the other information on the document?
Of course! Here's a snippet:
Dim nudCurrent As NotesUIDocument Dim sFilename As String Dim iTempCount As Long Dim sTemp As String Dim sFileExtension As String Dim wsCurrent As New NotesUIWorkspace Set nudCurrent = wsCurrent.CurrentDocument sFilepath = Input$("Enter the file path:") sFilename = Input$("Enter the filename to import:") 'Get extension If Instr(sFilename, ".") > 0 Then iTempCount = 1 sTemp = Right$(sFilename, iTempCount) While Left$(sTemp, 1) <> "." iTempCount = iTempCount + 1 sTemp = Right$(sFilename, iTempCount) Wend sFileExtension = Right$(sFilename, iTempCount - 1) Else sFileExtension = "" iTempCount = 0 End If sFileExtension = Ucase$(sFileExtension) If (sFileExtension = "JPG" Or sFileExtension = "GIF" Or sFileExtension = "CGM" Or sFileExtension = "BMP") Then Call nudCurrent.GotoField("Body") ?a RT Field Select Case sFileExtension Case "JPG": sFiletype = "JPEG Image" Case "GIF": sFiletype = "GIF Image" Case "CGM": sFiletype = "ANSI Metafile" Case "BMP": sFiletype = "BMP Image" Case Else sFileType = "ASCII Text" End Select Call nudCurrent.Import(sFiletype, sFilepath & "\" & sFilename)
As you can see the hard part is getting the file name and type.
