How to show images using a path

You can't do it in a text box, but in a chart you can add Imagen as an expression and select "Image" as the representation.

for your document, you can add the following expression inside your text box in image representation:

=

vRutaImagenes &Software & '\' & [Nivel 1] & '\' & Imagen



where vRutaImagenes is the root folder for your differents images types.

Software is the second folder level, and [Nivel 1] is the third level, and finally Imagen has the name of the picture you need to show

tell me if it works!

How to show images using a path

Hi Vlad,

I have entered ='C:\Users\bumin\Pictures' & '\' & 'Bora.JPG' as a formula in a diagram but when I click on it nothing happens

Is the syntax wrong?

Well, it's not "clickable" so I wouldn't expect anything to happen. But your syntax is correct so I'd imagine you're seeing the actual picture, right?

Re: How to show images using a path

Hi Mohammeds,

I have not loaded the images.

I want to see for each document the appropriate image from the specific directory.

If you want to make it "clickable" (i.e. to open a new application when you click a picture) I don't think that's possible using the representation-as-image technique. You would have to use Links, which is a separate discussion. However, I took a look at your sample app and if you just want to see this picture w/in the QV table, then you need to make it an expression, not a dimension. Then you will have the option to switch to "Image" representation.

Vlad
