Reading Files


Code Flow Control

To read or open a file in Fusion using PHP code, you would first start by drawing a text box as we have done in an earlier lesson.



There are many ways to read and format text files, This is a simple example

Take advantage of NOF's formatting capabilities here too. Shortening the size of the text box will reduce the size of the file wrapping in the browser display.

Size of textbox will dictate the wrapping of the text file

A note, PHP has many many text formatting functions to provide better formatting than is displayed here. These are just the basics to get you going.

Display Images in Browser

To display images, you can to do the following:

The results look like this in the browser:

Results of above PHP code

OK, so this is good, but what would be REALLY great would be if you could store/retrieve the text information or image and store it in a variable..... HMMMMM, well, YOU CAN by storing the filename or image name in a variable!
