ProIV 4.6

Is it possible to display images within PRO that reside on the server itself? Some variation of the #A = SYSTEM ?

Many Thanks

Not sure what you want with these images. It they need to appear on the proiv client, they would have to be accessible by the proiv client. If you don't want these images to be stored on the local pc, you would have to make a network mapping available so the proiv client can reach them. I don't think the performance of that will be very good.

Wim's question is definitive in that we need to know what you are trying to achieve before we can best answer the question. Another very important piece of information is the operating system of the server where the images that you wish to access are stored (UNIX/LINUX or Windows) as that will be significant in the solution.
Things should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler

The short answer is 'Yes', there are a few ways to accomplish this.

However, as the others have indicated, it would be very helpful to have a better understanding of what you are trying to do.

I suspect that you may be interested in using CLIENT.GETPATH to find the temporary directory on the workstation; CLIENT.SEND to send the image file to the workstation; CLIENT.EXECUTE to view the image with either a named application or the default application based on the file extension.

If you, however, you "know" that the image is located within a directory on the server that every user could see, you can use CLIENT.EXECUTE without moving the image to the local workstation.

Best of luck,
