Description

Writes images as is into a container.
Please set type you want with GMImage.SetMagick function.
Similar to other write functions, but allows you to use whatever magick type is set for codec.

This function is similar to our specialized functions GMImage.WriteToBMPContainer, GMImage.WriteToGIFContainer, GMImage.WriteToJPEGContainer, GMImage.WriteToPDFContainer, GMImage.WriteToPNGContainer and GMImage.WriteToTiffContainer, but you can specify the codec to use. Image is compressed and passed to FileMaker with filename. Then FileMaker (or our plugin for older FileMaker versions before 13) can detect the type from filename and generate required previews.

Examples

Save an image as PNG:

Set Variable [ $BigImageRef ; Value: MBS("GMImage.NewFromContainer"; Test::BigImage) ]
Set Variable [ $Result ; Value: MBS("GMImage.SetMagick"; $BigImageRef; "PNG") ]
Set Field [ Test::Result ; MBS( "GMImage.WriteToContainer"; $BigImageRef; "test.png" ) ]
Set Variable [ $Error ; Value: MBS("GMImage.Destroy";$BigImageRef) ]
