  • Insert .jpg as a comment?

    Is it possible to insert a .jpg as a comment, or in a manner similar to a comment, into a program? Trying to get a picture of the set up for a part to pop up for the operater when the program is run.
    Who am I, where am I, what's going on?

    INSERT ~ REPORT COMMAND ~ EXTERNAL OBJECT should get what you want.

    I would insert 2 differnt COMMENT commands and put this in between them, they can be hard to delete otherwise.

    There are 4 ways it can be marked:
    1) unmarked
    2) inside of icon shaded
    3) outside of icon shaded
    4) both inside and outside shaded

    Simply put the cursor on it and hit F3 until it is shaded inside and outside.

      I normally just create a simple hyper report, add a bitmap and load the picture you want into it. Then add the link to the hyper report in your main program

              Hyper report is a great thing mis-marketed by B&S so it never really caught on. They drove it into everyone's heads that it was a shithot post inspect reporting tool. It sucked for that. However, it is awesome for pre-inspect set up instructions. I hate Hypereport for post inspect, I love it for set up instructions.

                Heard a rumor during a training class that the hyper report dll was actually wrote by someone else, therefore wilcox was paying royalties for every user license sold or bascially something like that. Thus now its the way of the dinosaur.

                Honestly though, I never used it anyway.

                Seems like you can still do the same thing with the v4.0 custom reporting tools.

                  My drink just shot out my nose hearing Hexagon's CEO saying "Look at these exorbitant fees we are paying for software agreements. Look how unrealistically costly and worthless they are, what are we getting for all of this money we are spending? We gotta dump these guys, besides their tech support sucks........"

                    Suggestion...

                    In 4.+ what you are all describing with Hyper Reports is not handled using Forms.

                    1. View --> Form Editor. Once there, you will see basically the same tools as a hyper report. Create your setup with photos, sounds, text, etc... and save.

                    2. Insert --> Report Command --> Form. (NOT Form Feed!) :-)

                    This is also helpful to create custom front ends on your programs.
