Plant list images

Recommended Posts

I can insert an image function in my plant list to show the symbol next to the plant name.  When I do this though it shows the symbol with all the classes on so I can see the hydrozone, irrigation, and interior linework.  Can I control which classes it shows?

Unfortunately, no...the worksheet image function responds to the documents current class visibilities when the worksheet is recalculated. If you set your visibilities to the view you want your worksheet to represent and then recalculate the worksheet, you should see the images respond accordingly.

 

The entire =IMAGE function is a wishlist item that is in desperate need of repair.

 

Sorry this probably isn't what you were hoping.

I just placed a plant list on a sheet layer, selected the worksheet and selected classes and the worksheet reflected the classes.

Now we need the ability to place images from the plant database into a worksheet so clients can review the plant palette-

VW2016 and 2017 have the ability to add images to worksheets.  Sounds like it is time for you to upgrade.

I'm using VW 2018 and attempting to place a plant 'photographic' image into a plant report/schedule. I can place what we see in the top/plan preview and 3d OpenGL preview under Edit Plant Definition, but am unable to see how I can get it to display the contents of what is placed in a custom image field. Is this function possible?

Hi Peter,

Brilliant, that's exactly what I was attempting to do - thanks so much. How did you discover how to do that as I couldn't find a solution anywhere.

Thanks so much,

Julie

Dear Julie,

It's all in the excellent Help.

I included a Vectorworks file in my previous post to take apart.

Cheers,

PS it's a 2019 file.

Hi Peter 

 

Can you get a report/ worksheet to display the plant detail image? 

I can only seem to get it to display the symbol - =IMAGE 

 

=IMAGE'Plant Record'.'Image Detail'

Hello MUD,

As per the reply I sent (8/11) there is also a file that includes the worksheet. The formula used is =PLANTIMAGE(2)

2 being the fact it was the 2nd image that was chosen. It goes 1,2,3 down the page. This is how it is using the Filemaker database. It might be different or similar if you are using a Plant Catalogue. Not sure about that as we don't have any in Australia for use yet but I imagine 1-4.

 

I hope this helps.

Cheers,

Peter
