Create Gallery?

Hi all

Can anyone tell me if one can create a gallery with Data Bridge?

Thank you in advance.

You could create the basics of a gallery using data bridge.

data bridge can be used to create the pages that allow you to insert or edit the images in the gallery, and to display the images on a page.

if you want to display the images using a lightbox effect though, you will need to add moo-tools or jquery to the page to create the lightbox.

well, "creating a gallery" is a broad topic.

your first step, actually the first step of any web development project is start by planning what you want to accomplish in the end, get out the old pencil and paper and story board the idea.

do you want to have only one gallery?

or multiple galleries?

do you want to add to the gallery dynamically?

once you have a more concrete idea of the end goal, you can start developing.

starrt with creating any database tables you'l need.

If you want to have multiple galleries, you will need a galleries table:

galleries:
galleryID - Primary Key
galleryName
etc...

and a gallery images table:
galleryimages:
galleryimagesID - primary Key
galleryimagesGalleryID - relates to galleries.galleryID
galleryimagesImageName
etc....


you will need to run the data assist wizard to create a page to manage the galleries

then another set of pages to manage the images for the galleries

you'll also need to use security assist to create a login page and to restrict access to the gallery admin pages.


you will need to run the data assist wizard again to create the public search results and details pages for the galleries and to display the gallery images.

I would like to have one gallery.

It must be like a cms type of thing. My client must be able to add and remove his own pictures from the gallery.

The gallery i want must look like this. gallery.html

so you just need the one table for the gallery images.

use data assist to create the admin pages for the gallery images table to allow the user to upload new images or delete existing ones.

use security assist to create the login and protect the page.

Displaying the images on the page is a simple recordset, adding an image tag to the page, and using the recordset binding for the image source, then adding a repeat region around the images.
