Image field saved as BLOB

Postby reggiepr » Mar 26th, '13, 22:38

Your [HOW TO allow saving and downloading of BLOB files?] ( seems to suggest that we can have a Field of type image that allow to save the file in a BLOB field of a MySQL database.
2. Define these fields in your "file/image" field in a following way:
"save_as"=>"blob", "blob_filetype"=>"blob_type", "blob_filename"=>"blob_name", "blob_filesize"=>"blob_size"

However, the combination does not work. Why does the following code doesnt work in edit/details mode:

Code: Select all

'logopic'=>array('header'=>'Logo', 'type'=>'image',      'align'=>'left', 'wrap'=>'wrap', 'text_length'=>'-1', 'tooltip'=>'false', 'tooltip_type'=>'floating', 'case'=>'normal', 'visible'=>'true', 'on_js_event'=>'',"image_width"=>"50px", "image_height"=>"50px", "linkto"=>"","resize_image"=>"true", "resize_width"=>"640px", "resize_height"=>"","allow_downloading"=>"true", "magnify"=>"true", "magnify_type"=>"lightbox", "magnify_power"=>"3","save_as"=>"blob","blob_filetype"=>"blob_type", "blob_filename"=>"blob_name", "blob_filesize"=>"blob_size"), 

It only works if I use the type=file. I need the image type behavior but with saving in the database instead of the file system.

Any suggestion?

Unfortunately such feature doesn't exist, it works for "file" type only.

Return to “Field type: "image/file"”
