MediaSet Data Type

A complex type that encapsulates media, such as images, in application database tables. The MediaSet data type can be used as a table field data type, but cannot be used as variable or parameter.

The MediaSet data type enables you to import media to the application database as part of a collection, and then reference the imported media from records. This makes it possible to display the media in the client user interface. You can also export media from the database to files and streams.


The following methods are supported for the MediaSet data type:

COUNT method (MediaSet)
IMPORTFILE method (MediaSet)
IMPORTSTREAM method (MediaSet)
INSERT method (MediaSet)
ITEM method (MediaSet)
MEDIAID method (MediaSet)
