Creates a new image view inside the window with the given rectangle.

Component Version macOS Windows Server FileMaker Cloud FileMaker iOS SDK
ImageView 7.4 Yes No No No Yes

MBS( "ImageView.CreateWithSize"; WindowRef; x; y; w; h )

Parameters

Parameter Description Example value
WindowRef Window Reference is the unique OS level window ID. You can obtain this by using the Window.FindByTitle or Window.FindByIndex functions. Pass zero to access the frontmost window. 0
x The left coordinate in the window. 0
y The top coordinate in the window. 0
w The width of the image view in the window. 100
h The height of the image view in the window. 100

Result

Returns image view reference number or error.

Description

Creates a new image view inside the window with the given rectangle.
Use ImageView.Release later to destroy the image view.

If you use a register (tab controls) on the window, be aware that the image view actually is in front of the register (tab controls). So you need to check in the script which register page is current and should show what image view. Or by a trigger you turn the visibility on and off.

Image view reference numbers are starting at 74000 and counting up for each new image view.

Examples

Create image view with size:

# Query size of image
Set Variable [ $Image ; Value: MBS( "GMImage.NewFromContainer"; ImageView::ImageContainer ) ]
Set Variable [ $w ; Value: MBS( "GMImage.GetWidth"; $Image ) ]
Set Variable [ $h ; Value: MBS( "GMImage.GetHeight"; $Image ) ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS( "GMImage.Destroy"; $Image ) ]


# We play half size for retina screen resolution
Set Variable [ $h ; Value: Round($h/2;0) ]
Set Variable [ $w ; Value: Round($w/2;0) ]

# We play half size for retina screen resolution
Set Variable [ $$ImageView ; Value: MBS("ImageView.CreateWithSize"; 0; 100; 100; $w; $h) ]
Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("ImageView.SetImage"; $$ImageView; ImageView::ImageContainer) ]
