Wow - what timing - I was literally fiddling with an idea on this when
your email hit.
First- sure Base can browse to a file, just use the File Picker control.
Second - so far nothing I've tried will give you a drag/drop way to yank
the URL from an image driopped onto a form.
But as I say the file picker works just fine for this.
Avamk, have you used the file picker control and then if you need
relative paths, that would be easily done also.
