Queries the DPI settings stored in a container.
This does not look into the image resolution of an image, but just in the metadata FileMaker stored there when importing the image.
If selector x or y are passed, we return just the DPI value in x or y direction. If no selector is passed, we return list with both values. First entry is x, second y.


Query resolution:

MBS( "Container.GetResolution"; MyTable::MyContainerField )

Query X resolution:

MBS( "Container.GetResolution"; MyTable::MyContainerField; "x" )

Query Y resolution:

MBS( "Container.GetResolution"; MyTable::MyContainerField; "y" )
