Images in the database

Hi All,

Can someone please tell me how I can show database stored images within a template. I've managed to show them
in a new screen with send_data but can't seem to find how and if it's possible to show it in the template. The only thing I've tracked in different references and books
are displaying it on a new page. So could someone tell me if I'm chasing ghosts?

Kind regards,
Jeroen van Doorn

I think maybe Koloa meant file_column rather than acts_as_column?

Both acts_as_attachment and file_column make it relatively easy to upload files (images) and store as blob.

You can find them along with all the other major plugin references at
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/Plugins

Blessings,

Jeff

Nope, I'll look into this. Thanx!

You are 95% of the way there. You need an image tag that will display
the image. Since you already have an action that displays the image,
you simply need to tell the browser about it.

<img src="/my/action/with/the/image.jpg" width="200" height="200"/>

Hope that helps !

Wow! I never thought of that ... how stupid :slight_smile:

Thanx!

How about flex_image

http://beautifulpixel.textdriven.com/flex_image/index.html

I ve been using it and it is very handy to play with images.

Would be another alternative, but I don't need the extra options. So such a plugin would make
my code(base) larger than nessacery. When I need to do image manipulation in the future, I'll definitly will use fleximage

Kind regards,
Jeroen
