Inserts an image horizontally and vertically aligned as specified.
The image will be loaded when the table is drawn. Therefore, please use an absolute path.
If the image is inserted as a background object, then it will be clipped if it does not fit into the cell boundary. A cell can contain a background and a foreground object.
An image can also be added to the table as background object.
Foreground objects have a strong width and height. That means the cell will be expanded if necessary.
Image formats which support no transparency are inserted opaque. Transparent GIF images are inserted transparent and alpha channels in images will be considered. Images should normally be inserted in the native image color space. To achieve this, set the flag UseImageCS with DynaPDF.Table.SetFlags.
Images can be scaled into the cell as follows:
The parameters Width and Height are not exchanged if the cell uses a landscape orientation.

This function needs a native path. Please use Path.FileMakerPathToNativePath function in order to convert a FileMaker style path to a native path.


Add row and insert picture:

Set Variable [$subrow; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.AddRow"; $subtable)]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetCellImageEx"; $subtable; $subrow; 0; 1; "left"; "top"; 200; 0; Images::Image)]
