Is it possible to have a database driven picture field in ClearQuest?  I know you can add a static picture field but i have a need to have the picture source be database driven.

    Do you want to display an image dynamically in a ClearQuest form? I don't think it is possible. When you embed a static image to the form, it becomes part of the form design (same as the position of a text box). If you want it to be "database driven", it has to be a field of a ClearQuest record. Look at the existing data types offered in ClearQuest, which one can contain an image? None of them, really.

    ClearQuest does not allow customized client side scripting, so nothing can be done on ClearQuest Web as well.

    Thank you for the reply.  I am aware of the data types but was hoping that someone had a trick to get it to work dynamically.  It would be an awesome feature it they allowed it.
