      No, not in TP1.

      I've recognised this behavior and I think it's now time we change it. The current release will convert (or render) an image TV input into an html image tag. This will be changed to completely separate the input values from the rendered or displayed values. We will add an image control that will allow you to render the output as you so desire.

      The only work around now is to just use a Text input field.

        • Look for another release this week. Whether or not it will enable the particular TV feature you're after, Raymond will have to answer. smiley

          • For now, just comment out line 32 in tmplvars.format.inc like this:

            		// setup image type
            		if($tvtype=='image') {
            			$value = parseInput($value); 
            //		       $value = "<img src='$value' />";
            		}
            

            Then you can just put the variable in your own html tag.

              • Well I tried something, and it turns out you can do it both ways. If you read the TV into a snippet, you get the image path minus the img tag. So never mind commenting out the line of code. Instead here's a tiny snippet that I named 'GetImageTV':
                # Usage: [[GetImageTV?tvname=yourtv]]
                
                $imgarray=$etomite->getTemplateVar($idname=$tvname); 
                return $imgarray['value'];

                  Ok that way I do not need to change the core code...(did that already hehe added a new "notagimage" TV option)

                  Thanks for sorting this one out
