ADOBE Forms, dynamic images

Hi to all,

I'm working with Adobe Forms and I need to show the photo of an employee depending on his personal number.

So I can´t put the location of the image directly on the URL box of the object.

Does any one knows how to show jpg images dynamically?.

I can do it with Smartforms but I don´t know how to with Adobe Forms.

    • Hi Nicolas,

      Currently, I dont have a system with Adobe forms to help you with those details.

      I will suggest, to check the tutorials for Adobe/Interactive Forms on SDN/Google/SAP Help or in case if someone has code proof for you then wait for the reply.

      As an additon, check for Rich Heilman/Thomas Jung' s in the forum, they might be able to help you better.

    I'm working with Nico. We already could show photos dynamically in our Adobe form, uploading them into the Unix server (into AL11) and then referencing the path dynamically. But we still can't show the photos of the employees. The problem that we have now is that we would need a path of the photos on the server to be able to show them in the Adobe form, but we actually couldn't find the path where they are physically stored.

    The photos are being stored with ArchiveLink, using the content repository YE, which is configured as follows:

    Content Repository: YE

    Description: ...

    Document Area: ArchiveLink

    Storage type: SAP System Database

    Rep. Sub-Type: Normal

    Protocol: SAPAL

    Version Number: 0046

    Contents Table: ZCONT_DB --->> the structure of this table corresponds to the table SDOKCONT1

    Transfer directory: Z_GRAF_EMPLEADOS2

    Physical path: O:\DACON_RH\Sapgraf_prl\

    When calling 'HR_IMAGE_EXISTS' and 'SCMS_DOC_URL_READ' functions to get the URLs of the photos, those functions return URLs like this:


    but those URLs don't work in our Adobe form as the path of the photo (the photo isn't shown when we put that URL in the place of the path).

    Does anyone know where could be the photos physically stored or what can I do to solve this problem?

    • Hi Nicolas,

      I am also facing the same problem. The photo is being stored in archived link. I have used FM's to derive the URL. But when I use that URL it is not working.

      Can you please tell me how did you achieve it ?

      Thanks and Regards,

      Karthik Ganti.
