Inserting Picture only via Link


is it possible to insert a picture in a RichTextBoxAdv only via Link?
So that the HTML-Code of the control doesn't contain the whole binary Picture-Data.
I only want the link to an Uri-Source in web: <IMG SRC="htttp://www.test.de/test.jpg" />

Beste Regards

Hi Guido,

Thank you for contacting Syncfusion support.

Our RichTextBoxAdv Silverlight control supports image with Uri source. You can load Html with online link images into RichTextBoxAdv control. But there are some URL restrictions in Silverlight platform, which you can refer from the following MSDN link. If the Silverlight Image control loads the Uri source images properly, then our RichTextBoxAdv control will also load it properly.

my first attempts to load a html with uri source Images doesn't work.

Maybe i explain what i want to do in my application:
- I want that the user can use the RichTextBoxAdv to create a properly formatted E-Mail-Body-Text
- The user can insert images, links, etc.
- After saving this text in want to send a HTML-E-Mail with the created text

- Outlook doesn't support the imagesource in HTML-E-Mail
- RichTextBoxAdv sometimes doesn't shows the image again in the editor after reloading the text

Is there any solution i can use? I try to extract the image from the Html-Source (Base64-String)
and save it on the Webserver, but i have no clue how to save it in the proper format (jpg). Any ideas?

Best Regards

Hi Guido,

Thank you for your update.

Regarding “html with uri source Images doesn't work”:
We were not able to reproduce the mentioned issue with loading Html containing Uri source images is not loaded properly into RichTextBoxAdv control. We suspect that the problem might be due to internet connection. If the Uri source image is properly loaded in Silverlight control, then it should be loaded in RichTextBoxAdv control too. Since we have internally used Image control only to load image elements.

Regarding “Outlook doesn't support the imagesource in HTML-E-Mail”
Our RichTextBoxAdv control will export the images specified in bytes as base64 string and Uri source as Uri source itself into Html. Outlook doesn’t support base64 images. Hence kindly use online images, so that it will be properly preserved in Outlook.

Regarding “RichTextBoxAdv sometimes doesn't shows the image”:
We were able to reproduce the mentioned issue with RichTextBoxAdv doesn’t load images when reloading the exported HTML text. A support incident to track the status of this defect has been created under your account. Please log on to our support website to check for further updates.
