Adding an image to a window in JMP 9?

 

My company still has a bunch of JMP 9 licenses that we use on our factory floor so I occasionally need to make a JMP15 script work in 9.

 

Does anyone remember how to add an image to a window created with New Window? Seems so trivial, yet I could not figure it out even using the JMP 9 Scripting Guide.

 

This works in JMP 15 but not JMP 9:

 

myPic = New Image( Get Path Variable( "HOME" ) || "myPic.jpg" );
myWin = New Window( "User Input", Show Toolbars( 0 ), Show Menu( 0 ), myPic );

 

It doesn't throw an error, just no image shows in the window. The 'New Image' command is a viable JMP9 command, and I see that it recognizes myPic as a '<picture>' in the log window.

I tried various formulations using Picture Box() and couldn't get it to work.

 

I'm probably doing not doing something that used to be really basic. Any JMP 9 lore masters that can set me on the right path?

 

Thanks!

Hi, Jay.

The following is from the Scripting Index in JMP 10.0.2.  

 

Names Default To Here( 1 );
New Window( "Example",
	pb = Picture Box(
		Open( "$SAMPLE_IMAGES/tile.jpg", jpg )
	)
);

Will this work in your JMP 9?

Re: Adding an image to a window in JMP 9?

For the sake of completeness, it turns out that the JMP9 scripting syntax was not any different from JMP15 for putting a picture into a window.

The trouble, which should have been obvious, was the use of Get Path Variable("HOME"). Those path variables are, of course, different between JMP9 and JMP15 -- so I was looking for a picture that did not exist.
