Starting in 2019, the Reporting control is no longer included in Essential Studio. If you're experiencing issues with the Syncfusion Reporting Platform, Report Viewer, Report Designer, or Report Writer, we recommend migrating to Bold Reports, our dedicated reporting platform.

Bold Reports offers a comprehensive suite of tools and features for all your reporting needs, and we will help you make a smooth transition from the discontinued control. Our support team at https://support.boldreports.com/ is here to assist you with any questions or difficulties you may encounter during the migration process.

We thank you for choosing Syncfusion and appreciate your understanding.

Hi Lorenz,

Yes, Syncfusion ReportViewer have support to view external images. We have prepared a sample to use ReportParameter as image location which gets image path from code behind using SetParameters() API and it can be downloaded from the following location.

Thanks for the reply but it seems like it doesn't show the "image" just the path of the image . Can you please send some tutorial video that shows how it works.

Hi Lorenz,

The mentioned error might have occurred due to referring of lower version assemblies at your end. Please share your Syncfusion Essential studio version details. We have prepared a video sample of the application and it can be downloaded from the following location.

My Syncfusion Essential studio version is 13.1.0.21. do you think this is the reason why the image doesn't show? or is it something else like VS version.

thanks..

I can not seem to get this to work with a UNC path. How do you accomplish this?
