upload photo using file upload


I want to upload image using the file upload UI element .Iam fetching the path of the image and attached it to the source of the image .

But this is not working.....This photo upload is done as a part of ESS developement where the user browses photo,uploads it into the database and reviews it in the iview.

File upload provides browsing facility.In the upload button i should include the code to save the image in the database and in review button the image should be seen in the iview...

Can anyone sugges how to proceed further...???

    You can store the file on the application server using C13Z_RAWDATA_READ/WRITE function modules

    'SCMS_BINARY_TO_XSTRING' will be useful to convert binary to string.

    Hi Thomas ,

    Here, I've used the fileupload component to get the content of file just like the way you described. I've created my own ztable to store files. However i had trouble with the opposite process , converting xstring to a downloadable format and let the user have it without any corruption of file content.

    Do you have any suggestions ?

    • Hi Thomas,

      When i was looking at the examples (WDR_TEST_EVENTS) , i thought i should do conversion by mistake. And i've figured that i should give the MIME , FILENAME and XSTRING content to the filedownload component just like the same as i got. My problem is solved after you said ; "You shouldn't have to do any manipulation to it.". Thanks for your quick answer and sorry for my misunderstanding.
