Using LO Base to display images from a MySQL Database

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 x64, MySQL Server 5.5, and Libreoffice My latest project required me to add image support to one of my tables. I used MySQL Workbench 6.0 to add the field (LongBlob) to the table, and I used the “Open value in editor” option to populate the blob fields. I use LibreOffice Base to access my data. Can I populate an image object in LO with the photos in the MySQL DB with an SQL query? Thanks.

Not sure how well LO v4.2.8.2 handles LongBlob.

Just tested on Xubuntu 16.04, MySQL Server 5.7 using LO v loaded images in MySQL Workbench and used form wizard to create form in Base. No problem with images.

Not sure why you mentioned query.

Edit: Ran with a query and same results.

Edit (9/11/16): Doesn’t matter, text, blob. table, query (this is through a Query) - see sample change to show blob and text.

The reason I mentioned query is that I need to retrieve textual data as well as image data and display them on the same form.
