Image not viewed in pivot / webview

Hi all,

I've an issue that is going me mad.

I have a pivot table with 5 dimensions and, as expression something like this: =SERVER_PIC with Representation = Image and where SERVER_PIC, in my data model, is a link to an image in an external website (with http://www...).

With webview turned off, I can see my beautiful pivot with images in expression.

If I turn on webview, instead of the image I see only the textual link (the value of SERVER_PIC)... and the same on the qvw on Access Point!

Anyone can help me?

Thanks

S.

Thanks Simone,

As Margarita mentioned:

This workaround perfect works only for http-links like 'http:\\webserver\pic.png'.  It is great.

But it is not works for links (QV-objects - Tables and List Box) like:

'\\path\pic.png'

, 'c:\\path\pic.png'

,'file:///c:/path/pic.png'

Pictures from links of this types of links are not visible in the WebView/AJAX mode,

but in Developer/IEPlugin mode - are visible.

In the case of Text object (one picture) it is works correctly in all modes!!!

FYI.

Release of QV - 12.0.203 SR4.

Actually, to me it works fine always with IE plugin, however there is no way to make it work with Ajax.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Luis

I contacted Qlik Support and they confirm the bug is still there, and this workaround is not working for everyone.

So, the alternatives are:

     - Using the IE plugin

     - Using the BUNDLE prefix

     - mounting the folder with the imagen on a web server, and access them wiht 'http://yourwebserver/pic.png' (this is what I did, since works fine on ajax)

Regards,

Luis.

Hi Paulina,

As far as I know, it is not fixed. Actually, I guess Qlik does not consider this a bug. It is just the "default behaviour".

Best workarount is mounting the folder with the imagen on a web server, and access them wiht 'http://yourwebserver/pic.png' or, if you have just a few images, use BUNDLE.

Regards,

Luis.

We have just upgraded to QV 12.10 SR6 and have the same issue.  Changing the following setting in the settings.ini did resolve the issue, but don't really like making changes without good reason as this worked fine in QV11.


AllowGeneralAccessToImagesThroughURL=0 and change the 0 to 1.

Please note that there are 3 possible values for AllowGeneralAccessToImagesThroughURL

0 = No access at all

1 = Access through "http://" //
2 = Full access (same behavior as in 11.20)

Is there an issue number that we can reference in the release notes to verify that the issue has been resolved?
