Bundling an image


Hi,

I have just read up on bundling images and such. I've never done it before.

I have a small Excel file with two fields:

- Fieldname

- Link (like >> C:\Users\...jpg)

So far, that worked fine.

Now I want to use that bundled picture as a background_picture in a chart. So I have

- created a new free_text_object (on the "presentation" tab)

- on the tab "pictures", selected that

=> In the edit_field, I got that qmem syntax all right

<=> The image doesn't appear, only that text.

What else must I do to get that picture?

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,

DataNibbler

Re: Bundling an image

Are you referring to the text in Chart option in the presentation tab? It does not have that option, maybe you can just place a normal text object with the picture on top of the chart.

I know that setting with textboxes and such - but I want to add this as a free_text_box inside a graph. Where is it there?

Hi Piet,

yes, I know that, but that's not what I want - I don't want to set this as a background_image, but only a small image in a box in the upper right corner of the charting_area - a free_text_box or whatever you may call it.

Thanks Piet!

So that isn't possible. OK, so I don't have to worry.

I have done that with the textbox - but for that I do not necessarily have to  bundle the images at all?

Have a nice weekend!

You're welcome and yes it is then not necessary to bundle load these unless offcourse you want a variable picture in an expression.

Nice weekend!
