Display image from URL without image extension

Hi everybody,

 

i'm using this extension https://developer.qlik.com/garden/567836fd8703093925d91d03 to show images from a list of URL's that i have. 

In some cases, it doesn't load the image but just display the URL text. The only difference between the working ones seems to be that the not working URL don't contain the image file format (e.g.  .png or .jpg or any other).

Did anyone of you have the same problem. How did you solve it?

Thanks

VT

@valerio_trotta 

I made a small enhancement for the extension, so now you'll get an image for each URL without the requirement for an image extension such as PNG/BMP/JPG...

I'm attaching the JS file (Compressed in zip file due to limitation here).

You need to locate the extension folder:

qlikshare\StaticContent\Extensions\dpi-simple-table

And then replace the existing JS file with the one I uploaded, but first, make a copy of the original dpi-simple-table.js file.

Let me know if it works for you,

Eli.

HI @valerio_trotta 

I'm working with this extension for the same purpose (display images from URL addresses)

Can you please provide an example of a URL image link which does not display an image?

I'll try to test it in my environment.

Eli.

Hi @EliGohar ,

i quickly created a small app with examples of what i'm facing with QlikSense using random image URL's from the web.

Here it is.

Any chance to have the extension work with the Export to PDF / NPrinting options?

@tm_burgers Unfortunately 3rd party extensions are not supported, see here:

Qlik Sense does not support exporting or printing of visualization extensions that use external resources.
