Embedding Screen shots into Text Field

Avatar

15-07-2008

I have a user who wishes to embed screen shots (images) within a (large) text field. The field automatically flows (expands to fit the text) OK, but now they want to include images in the narrative.



If this is not possible, then is it feasible to write a JavaScript routine to create an image control on the fly, populate it with the image on the clipboard and then position it over the text field?

A text field is used to capture text not images. An image field can be used to capture an image (but not from the clipboard). Note that these are two separate fields. You cannot do what you want the way you have described it here.

Uh oh. so it's not like the RTF supported in WordPad.

That's a problem.
