Delete Image From Server After Delete Record

I have created a page for deleting records made with DataAssist and Form Builder. I would like to be able to tidy up the server once a record has been deleted by removing the associated image and thumbnail image. It would also be nice it was optional, ie. allow the admin to choose to delete associated images, rather than being automatic. It would be good to know how to go about doing it both manually and auto.

Is this possible?

The delete page will pass the record to be deleted to the delete record server behavior using a form element.

you would need to create a lookup recordset to filter the table based on the ID passed by this form element to return the file name for the image to be deleted.

In the delete file server behavior, you can use the recordset to reference the file name to be deleted.
