Adding a field to display an Image. e.g. Product Photo

Below is a screen that shows the product configuration area in Sage CRM. 

To create this field I added a new field to the NewProducts table within the administration screens.

I called my field 'prod_productImage' and used the Entry Type 'WWW URL'. The field has a length of 200 and an entry width on 100.

I then added the field to the New Product screen 'ProductSummary'.

I put the field on a new line and allowed it to stretch over 5 columns.

I also added the following script into the custom content box.

[code language="Javascript"]
crm.ready(function () {
var myfield = crm.fields("prod_productImage")
if (myfield.getMode()=="view")

The image is entered as a URL.



Once the image has been entered and saved field shows the URL as an image.

  • Thanks a lot for the step by step guide. Worked Perfectly.

    Is there a way to maintain the original size of the image once loaded, i can see that one can define the width, i would assume similary the height. What would be the best way to maintain the original size of the image.

    Imagine there is an image created.      

    img src="/crm73/Themes/img/ergonomic/Icons/company.png" hspace="0" border="0" align="TOP" id="myimage" title="" />

    You can get the actual dimensions using the properties naturalHeight and naturalWidth.  E.g.

    var myimage = document.getElementById("myimage")



  • Hi Jeff,

    Can we add this image in a quote document template ( html or Word)?

  • Jerome

    In the example above the image is not held in the database - only the path is used.  You can certainly include the path in the email template to add the image to outbound emails.  But this link to an external file doesn't work within the document merge as it expects the image file to be included in the document.

    Is there any way I can add a field to the pricing block? I need to add NRC and so far no luck

  • Do you mean Non Recurring Costs by NRC?  How do you want this to appear? - It is best if you start a new thread in one of the forums, please.
