So, you got the issue solved or still having any issues..?
Faizymca 21-Jun-13 1:07am
problem is still....not show the image on my rdlc report...
RelicV 21-Jun-13 2:29am
Okay. Have you developed the reports using BIDS or Visual Studio..?
Faizymca 21-Jun-13 5:49am
yes i developed the rdlc report using Visual Studio 2010....
RelicV 21-Jun-13 5:57am
Hey, if you look at the Data, it already contains "~\ImgUpload" in the ImagePath column, if i assume that above table is your data only. And again you'r trying to add that in the expression [=@"~\ImgUpload\"...]. Remove that and check it.
Faizymca 21-Jun-13 6:07am
when i give simple path of field name PhotoImagePath
An error occurred during local report processing.
Report 'Report' contains external images. The EnableExternalImages property has not been set for this report
Faizymca 21-Jun-13 6:15am
Sir what option choose by me Image Source External,Database,Embedded
i choose external is it right ....???
RelicV 21-Jun-13 6:18am
Try setting it to Database is not correct as image is not saved in Db. External is the correct option. Have you set the EnableExternalImages to true..?. Have to look at the report to give you a proper answer.
Faizymca 22-Jun-13 1:05am
thank ...sir it's right option....yes, I set the EnableExternalImages is true on my aspx.cs page code ....i store only path of image in table ...i also try folder name + path in table in my store procedure which are called in this field...('ImgUpload'+PhotoImagePath)as Photo this...type where i setting that image show
Faizymca 22-Jun-13 1:25am
i updated page.cs code in question list....pls see.... your point of view...
raj ch 21-Jun-13 3:19am

Faizymca 21-Jun-13 5:57am

i develop report only except image all field are come according to requirement...but image is not come actually i save the path in data table.......please give answere in step by step...that how can i solve
PrissySC 24-Jun-13 11:28am
Check the properties, select the image source as external. Set the enableexternalimages to true before the display/refresh. Under use this image select the field that stores the image path and when doing so make sure that you are showing correctly. What I mean is that the path for a server starts with a "/". More than likely your string is incorrectly stored. On a local with a relatvie path - ../images/myimageshow.jpg

You could use a paramter and pass the path.

Faizymca 26-Jun-13 6:33am
Yes ...It's work when i write path in properties this type (="http://localhost:2731" & First(Fields!PhotoImagePath.Value, "DataSet1")) and remove (~) from table 's datafield replaced \ImgUpload\baba.JPG....its doing right work.....

But i want path pass in parameter how can right server name in parameter and don't need for removed (~) from datatable
