Contact Image: The myBook contacts allow the user to attach a picture to the contact. This picture is displayed in the Contact list view and the contact viewer. As a default the picture is a silhouette with a “No Image” text message. Selecting on this “No Image” image, will display an Image browser window, which will have a collection of the images stored on the user’s mobile device. The user will have to select the image, which is needed for a particular contact. This window has two buttons “Select” and “Cancel”. Choosing the “Select” button, after selecting an image from the photo browser window, will load that image to the contact as shown in the figure below:

Selecting on cancel will return the application to the add window without attaching the selected image. The default image “No Image Icon” will be loaded for the contact by default. The Loaded image can be removed by selecting the red colored “X” icon next to the Image. Selecting on “X” will replace the user loaded image by a default “No Image” icon.

The contact pictures support the following picture formats: .jpg, .png and .bmp.

The contacts tool makes a local copy of the selected picture and stores it in the program’s native path (‘/mybook/contacts/mybookphotos’).

The saved copy is 90 x 90 pixel in size and is displayed on the list page and the view page. The picture/image can be updated or removed by selecting the picture and then selecting a new or default picture.
