Hello Formspider Team,

I have a table which contains images, the structure is kind of as follows:

PERSON_ID : type number

IMAGENXXXX: type long raw

IMAGENB : blob

When I try to replicate the Formspider Tutorial 31:"How to upload any image file and display it on Image component at run time".

While creating the datasource I get the following error:

Column IMAGENXXXX has unsupported data type: LONG RAW.

I tried the following: - Delete the IMAGENXXXX from the query (doesn't allow me to do it). - Set a domain for this specific field (doesn't work).

Is this the expected behavior? I will try to find a workaround.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Freddy,

Formspider does not support the use of long raw datatyped columns in datasource definition. If you need to do DML operations using this datasource, you can define a view based on your table which does not include the long raw column and create your datasource definition based on that view. If you don't need to perform DML, you can select "Query" as based on option and write your custom query for the datasource definition.

Hope this helps,
