Procedure: Synchronizing native pictures

If your application will be used on more than one platform, you must create corresponding native pictures on both platforms. These pictures must be synchronized (given the same internal ID) so the correct picture will be displayed on each platform.

  1. Create the native picture on the first platform

When you create the first native picture, be sure the Synchronize With option in the Native Picture Definition window is unmarked.

  1. Open the dictionary on the next platform.


  1. Create the corresponding native picture for the new platform.

Before you save the native picture, mark the Synchronize With option. A list of pictures from the first platform will be displayed.

  1. Select the name of the appropriate picture from the first platform and click OK.

The pictures will automatically be given the same internal ID.
