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.

ReportViewer doesn't show images from database field


I'm trying to show an image the path that comes from a table field. It works when setting a static url, but when setting the field value it doesn't show anything.

Thank You.

Hi Liviu,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

We are unable to reproduce the mentioned issue. The issue might have occurred due to usage of unsupported expression in report. However, we have prepared a sample and it can be downloaded from the below location,

Thank you for the reply.
Unfortunately I need to use an external image source of the image control in the report, and the values are taken from the field of the dataset.
Try to change the dataset query to this:
,'http://dummyimage.com/200x100/292929/e3e3e3&text=DummyText' as imageurl

and set the image source as external.

Thank you.
