I can set an image URI if I use a picture box.

But the only option I seem to have when binding is to bind the actual image.

So, given that I need to pass the URI of an image to the report (this is for the logo to be used. It is stored as a physical file on the web server. There is no option for saving it in the DB) and that I want to use said image as a background for my Page Header, what do I do?

I know I could just use a picture box, but the image is fairly big and uses a lot of space. I can't overlap the image and the textboxes the data from my Page Header 'cos that's not allowed, so my only real option is to set the image as the background image in the style.

As always, any and all help, etc.

Hello Stuart,

You can create an user function ConvertImage(string url) that takes the URL string and converts it to Image type. The image type then can be bound to the Style.BackgroundImage.ImageData property of the page header. Find attached a sample project with this functionality.

Kind regards,
