NotesAPI - Import Pictures into RichText Fields using Backend Classes- 26 August 2014 - (2) Comments
Thomas Hampel26 August 2014
Importing pictures into a RichText field as embedded object is easy in the Notes Client. One can use the File\Import function to get this done - unfortunately this function is not available when running scheduled agents on a server.
So how can it be done?
Some time ago Andre Guirard published a LotusScript example as part of the OpenNTF project LotusScript Gold Collection to import a picture using the NotesDXLExporter class to export an existing NotesDocument to XML while then injecting the new image including all its metadata into this XML.
Oh and of course I know we could be using Tivoli Directory Integrator or commercial solutions such as...
- Notes Import Export Library from Voith's Code for $25 for a single server license
- Midas LSX from Geniisoft for $3.000 for a single server license (Update: sold as client software this would be $1500 for 50 users)
But why installing another software or using 3rd party solutions if there are existing API calls that can be used. So yet another - less expensive - method to import pictures into RichText is the Notes API.
Beside being faster, this method is will also work for older versions of the Notes Client, so feel free to use this script for mass-import of pictures into the Domino Directory
