Can you in an iview select an image file from KM and see thumbnails?

Hi you all!

The above question isn't quite comlete, it's a part missing: "Can you in an iview select an image file from KM and see thumbnails in the selection dialogue?"

Background: If you want to upload a picture into the KM you first choose "Folder > New > Upload" and then you press "Select". Then an ordinary Windows selection dialogue opens up. Here you can choose if you want to see the content as icons, a list or as a detailed list.

Problem: If you in an own developed iview wants to select an image file from KM to use in your application/iview, and further more wants to see the files as thumbnails in the selection dialogue, how do you do that? Is it possible to do by standard features or is it possible to do at all?

Best regards

Benny Lange

      Hello Benny,

      you could use xml forms, where you have several documents with the pictures of the employees on each document, then display those forms as a grid list simulating thumbnails, then the user could pick any employee by the picture and access other informations stored on the documents. Bad part is that it's necessary to input all the data into the newly created xml

    Hi,

    one workaround will be to use the iview template called "iview KM navigation".

    In Content administration, in the PCD right click to create a new iview "from template", and select the template "KM navigation iview".

    You can add the parameters "initial folder" to make it start at the folder you want to.
