External Imagens Link
I'm trying to use an external image in a PictureBox but I can't do it.
I've set the Data->Source property to "external" and have tried many ways of using the link in the "value" property:
None of them work. I keep getting the "The link '' was not an image" Error when I print it.
Have you used this feature before? Perhaps I'm missing something.
I have used PictureBoxes only with embedded images. I tried an external one and had the same issue as you. I suspect it could have something to do with the URL being https instead of http. See if you can find an http image for testing.
My advice would be however to use embedded images. External images can fail to be loaded if there is something wrong with the source website.
Turns out external images are stored on the same server. The value is not a URL but a path in the server.
Would be a nice addition.
Definitely would be a nice addition. Here's the excerpt from the training manual about "External" images having to be on the same server:
I haven't tried it @krunal-doshi, but I haven't seen anything in the release notes about it.
