Hi Experts. I would like to create an app using SQL Server or Share point where the user can log a software bug but also easily include a screen dump (or multiple screeb dumps) from a PC desktop. I have done some research and found you can paste such images into a RichText edit box, and I have tried this, it works on Firefox (but not Chrome) but I have no idea how to save the image. Is this the right way to go, or should I go for logging images directly into SQL binary fields - which is lengthy if you have to make an itermeadary jpg file , or using a share point document library (which may hit limitations or be slow)?
Has some one done something like this before? I beleive this would be valublle to everyone in the community and software developers generally. So if you have any experiance or wisdom to share I would be gratefull if you would share it.
Hi @CliveMM ,
Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?
Do you want to save image back to your SQL Server or SharePoint list?
Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think you could save the image data back to a varchar(max) column in your SQL Table directly.
Please check and see if the following video would help in your scenario:
Note: The varchar(max) column has better performance than an image field in storing image data.
In addition, you could also consider store the image data back to a Multiple Lines of Text type column in a SP List directly without storing image into a SP Library.
Please check and see if the following solution would help in your scenario:
