Can I Display A Database Picture In The Print Prompt Follow

I was wondering whether it would be possible to display a linked picture from the database where the label is pulling its information at prompt time. I have part # and description pulling as read only so the user can see which labels they are printing, however having a picture makes it more obvious so the user will not confuse the part or print the incorrect label. I tried setting the database field prompting on, however the field will only display the pathname/picture name, not an actual picture. Is there a way to do this, either through scripting or some other setting? (I am using bartender 7.75 enterprise edition)

Hi Ahunter488,

Currently no good method I can think about.

The latest BarTender 9.4 added ability to place preview of label on user prompt, so you can preview database value and bar codes on prompt.
The preview is automatically updated as you type / select data on the user prompt.
However.. data-sourced picture is not supported in this new prompt preview, so your pictures from database are still not shown.
Hopefully we get that function in next version.

Please use Print Preview function when you need to see the picture before print.
