How to insert images that are stored in a data source

On the Binding page, in Data Set, choose the data set that contains the image field. BIRT creates a column binding for each field in the data set.
Choose Select Image Data. Select Data Binding displays the column bindings available to the image element, as shown in Figure 5‑5. The image element has access to all the column bindings defined for the table, its container.

On New Image Item, under Enter dynamic image expression, an expression that refers to the selected column binding appears, as shown in Figure 5‑6.
