Linking Shape Field To A Diagram / Image File

Linking Shape Field To A Diagram / Image File

Hi

 

A Shape can be configured to support a number of fields which are used to display attribute or collection values in various parts of the Shape.

 

Is there any way in which an individual field can be tied to an image file (e.g. a png, jpeg or some other format) so that an image is placed dynamically in the field container in the Shape rather than text? (I can't find anything that may be possible in any of the API documentation - shape, java, VBScript or decompiled JAR files)

 

(I am not looking to display an icon associated with the parent object class.)

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Linking Shape Field To A Diagram / Image File

Hi David,

 

I dare say no but the solution would be to have several shapes and these shapes will be chosen according to a context (properties and or links).
I am not able to find the documentation about it in HOPEX but here is 3 links about this idea:

Re: Linking Shape Field To A Diagram / Image File

Thanks for looking at this. I need something that actually generates an image based on a diagram, which means that a pe-defined shape probably can't meet the need.
