Sending images through a custom Chat widget

Hello Everyone ,

I am creating a custom Chat widget that will allow users to communicate through an in-app messaging system. We have the functionality working for sending regular text, but we want to include the ability to send/receive images. I have a few questions that I am hoping someone can help answer:

1. Is it possible to have a FileUpload that loads a file into a Data Table?

2. How can I associate certain image uploads with certain users?

    • For example, User 1 submits Img1, User 2 submits Img2 & Img3
    • When I open User 1's chat history, I need to be able to pull in Img1 with a timestamp

3. Is it possible for a Thing to implement the SystemRepository Thing, and then have 1 object for handling text and picture chat messages?

Thanks in advance for all of your help! Any suggestions from someone who has implemented something similar in the past would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Alex
