Insert .JPG image in a table cell

Hello Francisco,

I can see that you asked a similar question a few days ago in https://community.spotfire.com/s/question/0D54z00008cmba2CAA/change-icons-to-photos. Are you looking for any specific additional details here? My answer would be the same as provided by Kirsten Smith there (in much more detail)., i.e. use a Column Renderer, with Image from URL, example path: file://computername/folder1/folder2/{$}.jpg (where {$} will be replaced by the value in that column, which in this case should be the image file name) and make sure to follow the instructions regarding whitelisting/permissions - the last part tends to cause the most issues, and if not done correctly, you will not see any images.

The preferences related to this are managed by a Spotfire Administrator, using the Spotfire Administration Manager Tool (available in TIBCO Spotfire Analyst > Tools menu > Administration manager). After starting the tool, you can find the Preferences under the Preferences tab. These particular preferences can be found under the Application > ApplicationPreferences.

In addition to what Kirsten Smith wrote in that previous question, there is a KB article that explain how this works:

https://support.tibco.com/s/article/Tibco-KnowledgeArticle-Article-44374 ("How to allow link renderer in a Table Plot to use file paths (file://C:/temp) instead of HTTP addresses")

You can also read more about the preferences in the Administration Manager User's Guide:


I recommend that you read about the following preferences - the first two are about what file extentions (like .jpg) are allowed, and the last two about what Uri Schemes (like file://) are allowed

Additional File Extensions

Allow Additional File Extensions
