Sets whether external images are allowed on a report.
Client report definition (RDLC) report layouts
Yes if external images are allowed; otherwise, No. The default is No.
When you use the Visual Studio Report Designer for creating reports for the RoleTailored client, you can add images such as your company logo to a report. You can add either embedded or external images.
- With an embedded image, the source file is
compiled as part of the report. If a report only uses embedded
images, then you can set the EnableExternalImages property
to No. For an example of using embedded images, see How to add a Company Picture to a
- With an external image, the source file is
stored outside of the report in a location that must be accessible
from the RoleTailored client, such as on a file server or local
computer. The image is referenced from the report and loads when
the report opens. To use external images on a report, the
EnableExternalImages property must be set to Yes.
Note The EnableExternalImages property exposes the LocalReport.EnableExternalImages property of the Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms.LocalReport object, which is embedded in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013. The Microsoft.ReportViewer.WebForms.LocalReport object is part of the ReportViewer controls that are available in Visual Studio for adding reports to your application. Important To display an external image in the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client or Microsoft Dynamics NAV SharePoint client, if the network uses a proxy, then you have to configure the client to bypass the proxy. To do this, you modify the web.config file of the website that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components or the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Portal Framework for Microsoft SharePoint 2010. For more information, see Adding Images to a Report (Visual Studio Report Designer).
For information about how to add images using Visual Studio Report Designer, see Adding Images to a Report (Visual Studio Report Designer).
Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2013 cannot verify image sources and protect against malicious images or sources that may be harmful to your computer. You should set the EnableExternalImages property to Yes only if you can ensure that images on the report come from a trusted source.
