Dream. Dare. Do – that is Suyati’s work principle in a nutshell.
There are many times when we need to display an image as a custom field like when a status of a contact is changed to pending or accepted.
Though this is possible natively on force.com it is not so direct. Here’s an example which will illustrate how to display an image on/as a custom field on salesforce.com
You need to be an administrator or should have the permissions to modify Objects.
Specify the condition on which image is to be displayed. E.g. I want to display this image when my status field is set to “accepted”, therefore I write an IF condition
Replace the Record ID of your file on the highlighted code.
Now you can see the image on the page layout according to your specified formula.
Hope this helped you. Please leave a comment if you need any help regarding this post or any other force.com related issues.
