    Hi there, 

    I'm new to Telerik Reporting and I'm building a report that shows a list of images.  The images are uploaded from a mobile app, processed, and then are made available to be displayed on the report.

    In some cases there could be an issue with the processing and the image file is not available or the processing hasn't completed yet before the report is executed.  In this case I would rather display nothing than the big red error message that shows when the image can't be found.  Is there a way for me to suppress this message somehow?

    I've attached a sample of the error message.

    Thanks for the help,

    Hi Greg,

    Reports are processed and rendered in a single thread, thus the approach to prevent the PictureBox error message involves creating and using user functions. We recommend the custom validation of the input which can return the URL or the downloaded image object.

    Best Regards,
    Progress Telerik

    Thanks Silviya.  I'll give user functions a go and see if I can accomplish what I need to do.
