Containers with WebDirect

I added a container field to my app for student photos. Students have place they can log in using WebDirect to see their credits at any time and I want to make it so they can update their own photos on the phone.

In the security panel I don't let them edit their own records, so I created a 1-to-1 join with a new table which has the photo container. In the desktop version of the app when logged in as me I can paste images in there.

On the iPhone when I log in as a student I can't seem to edit the field at all. On the desktop when logged in as a student I can drag an image there, but I when I right-click all the options are greyed out.

Is this expected behavior. I had expected if a student goes to this field on their phone and clicks on it they would have the option to upload an image from their library or take a photo or upload a file.

Probably best to script the interaction. It will give them a better experience and give you more control over the process.

Thanks, I hadn't heard anything so I posted to the Claris forums and someone suggested the "Insert from Device" script step, which is exactly what I needed but couldn't find.

Probably worth recording the script name here for next person searching for it. :slight_smile:
