I have a form with image controls. I can populate these image controls at runtime by right-clicking them, which pops up a menu to insert an image (and remove an image if there is already an image. ). I do not want to save the images themselves in the database, I only want to save their url’s. When I insert an image, the image control writes the url of the image to the table. Currently, my images are stored in a subdirectory of the database, and the url’s are written as a relative path (relative to the location of the database). This however breaks other functionalities like passing the url to an external image viewer. This requires the absolute path. How can I force base to write the url’s as absolute paths? In other instances, the relative path might be preferable, so idealy I hope to find a switch to determine whether url’s are saved as relative or absolute paths.
