REMOVE Method (MediaSet)

Removes a media object from a MediaSet of a record.


[Ok := ]Record.MediaSetField.REMOVE(MediaID)  


Type: Record

Specifies the record that includes the MediaSet.

Type: MediaSet

Specifies the field of the record that is used for the MediaSet that contains the media object to remove. This field must have the MediaSet data type.

Type: GUID

Specifies the unique ID that is assigned to the media object that you want to remove from the MediaSet.

Existing media objects are stored in the system table 2000000184 Tenant Media of the application database. There are different ways of obtaining the GUID of a media object. You could identify the media object ID by looking in the table. Or programmatically, you can use either the Item Method on a MediaSet data type field of a record or the MEDIAID Method on Media data type field of a record.

Property Value/Return Value

Type: Boolean

true if the media is successfully removed from the MediaSet; otherwise, false.


The REMOVE method disassociates the media object from the MediaSet. It does not delete the media object from the database.


This example uses the REMOVE method and Item Method (MediaSet) to remove a media object from the MediaSet for record '1000' in the table called TableA. This example assumes the following about TableA:

  • It has a MediaSet data type field called Images
  • It contains the record number '1000'.
  • Record '1000' has at least 1 media object in the MediaSet.

This code example requires you to create the following variables:

Variable name DataType Subtype
recA Record TableA
mediaId GUID (not applicable)

This code example requires you to create the following text constants:

Text constant ENU value
Text000 Media %1 was removed from MediaSet %2.
Text001 The media was not removed from MediaSet %1.


// Retrieves the GUID of the first media object (index number 1) in the MediaSet of record 1000 in TableA
mediaId := recA.Images.Item(1);

// Removes the media object from the MediaSet of record 1000
IF recA.Images.REMOVE(mediaId) THEN
    MESSAGE (Text000, mediaId, recA.Images.MEDIAID);
    MESSAGE (Text001);
