How to insert a linked image

Drag the image element from the palette, and drop it in the desired location on the page. Edit Image Item appears, as shown in Figure 5‑2.

Figure 5-3 Edit Image Item dialog

Figure 5‑2
To link to images whose URIs are stored in a database, use the following procedure. The procedure assumes you have already created a data set that includes the field, which stores the URIs to the images.

In the expression builder, select the data set field that stores the locations of the images, then choose OK. Figure 5‑3 shows an example of selecting a data set field named URL, which stores the URLs to images.

To type a specific URL, choose the arrow button next to the expression builder button, and choose Constant. Type the URL.
You would specify a local file system location only for testing in the early stages of report development. A deployed report cannot access resources on a local machine.
To specify an expression that evaluates to a URL at report run time, choose the expression builder button to construct the expression.
