CDM - Image Loading / Saving (Patch)

HI PG:

 

Appreciate and thanks for such an excellent effort in bringing CDM to us in the shortest time.

 

Integration of CDM & Excel Cloud will be the best answers to Data-Sensitive Organization when creating Productivity Apps, Sales Apps, etc. Since CDM is within the control of Azure services, security will be much assured.

 

Data exchange (Refresh and Publish) with built-in Microsoft PowerApps Add-ins (Excel 2016) are highly appreciated, though strong internet connection is needed.

 

Most of the existing Apps's syntax remains untouched, with minimum amendment of Tables -- (to) Entities.

 

CDM Tutorials are well explained of the application. So far, this is the most complete explanation at the very initial stage.

Nonetheless, would PG clarify on:

1. Image saving (Patch)

2. Images Uploading (from Excel)

 

1. Image Saving (Patch)

- This is possible with the use of Create App from CDM Data where SubmitForm can easily save images into CDM Cloud

- However, in most of the case, I am writing my own and use Patch(Entity, Defaults(Entity), {Title: ..., Image: AddMediaButton1.Media}). Nothing Patched / Saved.

Can PG explain the method of saving using Patch.

 

2. Images Uploading (from Excel)

- Most of the time, we may have bulk photos to be uploaded frm C:\uers\Pictures\X1.jpg, X2.jpg, ...which are listed in one of th ecolumn under image [image] in Excel

- How can we Upload to Entity under IMAGE field into CDM Cloud?

(This should should expedite works esp for those making Apps for Catalogues, Schools Biodata,...where we need to upload photos)

 

Once again, my appreciation to the team's hardwork and speedy response to most of the questions.

 

Best wishes.

 

Hong
