    Hello Support

    I want to create image gallery based on our web cams which means I can not upload the file because our web cams images will be refreshed in 5 minutes. Is there any chance not to upload image but save url to the image in your image control or I need to create my own user control?

    Thanks in advance for your answer

    Sincerely
    Evgeny Vdovin

    Hello Evgeny,

    I suggest you to add a new metafield for all the Images in the Libraries. You will still use the Image type libraries for your web cams. You can upload a thumbnail representing each camera, and store the URL of the camera image in the metafield. Then, you should only create a user control which is taking the metafield's value (using the GetMetaData() ).

    Another way that comes to my mind, is to create a new type of library, having only the metafields you need, for example URL field and Name field.

    Don't hesitate to contact us if you have other questions.

    Regards,
