The result value which you can assign to a container field.


Returns the result of the transaction as PNG image.
Make sure the data is a PNG. The plugin does not verify whether result is a PNG file. But if it is one, it sets size properties and creates a preview JPEG so FileMaker can preview it.
Version 5.2 and later can use the filename from URL if you don't provide one yourself.

See also CURL.GetResultAsContainer.


Load a PNG file from URL into container:

# start new transfer
Set Variable [$curl; Value:MBS("CURL.New")]
# set URL
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("CURL.SetOptionURL"; $curl; "")]
# run transfer
Set Variable [$ErrorCode; Value:MBS("CURL.Perform"; $curl)]
# get result as PNG for field and debug messages:
Set Variable [$Result; Value:MBS( "CURL.GetResultAsPNG"; $curl)]
Set Field [test::MyContainerField; $Result]
Set Variable [$DebugMessages; Value:MBS( "CURL.GetDebugMessages"; $curl)]
# cleanup
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("CURL.Release"; $curl)]
