Size limit on image file? [message #201801] Mon, 06 November 2006 16:59 Go to next message

Hi,
My oracle form calls READ_IMAGE_FILE(path,'TIFF',itemname) to show document images. The form works fine, except when querying a few document IDs. With the problem document IDs, READ_IMAGE_FILE doesn't fail, image appears and post-change trigger is even called. However, immediately after the post-change trigger, the form closes out. Or it doesn't close out when quering the problem IDs after querying non-problem IDs. Hard to figure out...

Is there any size limit to image file? Why is the form acting inconsistently? I cannot find any causes on this closing out.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Are you working with 'tiff' files?

I googled 'READ_IMAGE_FILE fail' and found http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/forms/6idocs/bugfix_p11_s.html

I believe that this may have been fixed in Patch 9.

Hi again after 2 years...

I came back to the same topic because we still have the same problem quite often where the Oracle form shuts down when trying to display a TIFF file with READ_IMAGE_FILE. We use the same version of Forms and Oracle database as in 2006.

Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.

Yes we always compile the screen to test, and of course before puting it to production area for users. Is there other way to retrieve images instead of read_image_file()? I cannot find any recent online ariticles (problems) somebody brought up on read_image_file, but are there? If we use newer version of Forms, we would not have this problem?
