Insert images into descriptor from Macro

Hello,

in our Website we want to add a new descriptor, but it's content needs to be generated by a Macro. Now the problem is that when we try to include images, the HTML output includes hard links to images (Such as <img src="c:\program files (x86)\MEGA\.."/>)

 

In a website descriptor we can use [Variable=StdFile File="...."/] to make the Website generator copy the relevant image and create a relative link (Such as <img src="../images/appl.gif"/>). This works fine but the Macro-generated images do not get converted. Is there a Macro equivalent of calling [Variable=StdFile File="..."/] in a Website generation context? We want to use this to replace the hard links and create a working website.

Re: Insert images into descriptor from Macro

Hello alros,

 

you can try this in your macro :

 

Sub Generate(oObject, oContext, sUserData, sResult)

  Dim oRoot, oWebsite

  Set oRoot = oObject.GetRoot
  Set oWebsite = oContext.Website

  sResult = "<h2><img src=" & Chr(34)

 

  If oWebsite Is Nothing Then
    sResult = sResult & oContext.StdFileCopy("appl.gif","","")

  Else
    sResult = sResult & oContext.StdPath(1,False) & oContext.StdFileCopy("appl.gif","","")

  End If

 

  sResult = sResult & Chr(34) & " alt=" & Chr(34) & "Softwares" & Chr(34) & " style=" & Chr(34) & "vertical-align:middle;" & Chr(34) & "/>&nbsp;Softwares</h2>"

 

End Sub

Best regards,
