Hi, I am trying to load an image from external URL, following is my code

Private Sub detail_ItemDataBound(ByVal sender As System.ObjectByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles detail.ItemDataBound  
        Dim detail As Telerik.Reporting.Processing.DetailSection = DirectCast(sender, Telerik.Reporting.Processing.DetailSection)  
        Dim section As Processing.DetailSection = TryCast(sender, Processing.DetailSection)  
        Dim row As DataRowView = DirectCast(section.DataItem, DataRowView)  
        Dim aPicBox = DirectCast(detail.ChildElements("pnlDetails").ChildElements("pnlPic").ChildElements("picProperty"), Processing.PictureBox)  
        Dim oWebRequest As WebRequest  
        oWebRequest = WebRequest.Create("http://www.geekologie.com/2007/12/07/future-car-1.jpg")  
        aPicBox.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(oWebRequest.GetResponse.GetResponseStream())  
    End Sub 

and I get

An error has occured while processing PictureBox 'picProperty':
Access to the path xxxxxxxxx' is denied.

Hi James,

You can use the value property of the picturebox to set the url directly from the report designer. If you want the image to change based on some condition, the approach is to create a user function that would return
the proper url and use it instead.

I am getting this same error when adding images dynamically to 2 subreports on a report in silverlight. the first image looks great but the second gets the "An error has occurred while processing Picturebox xxxxxx. Access to the path <pathname> is denied.

Why wont it let me access the second image?

Thanks,
Richard

Steve, was this ever resolved...?

I am trying to dynamically load an image onto the report from a wbe site. The image is in the server, and the path passes correctly, except when the report tool generates the report, it throws the same error as described above.

I tried it through a fixed path in my computer, as well as a hosted file on my own IIS server. The former says that the path is unauthorized, the latter throws a 401 error.

any help?

Hello Erik,

This error sounds like a local machine problem.  "Access is denied"  usually refers to permission related problem. Installing Telerik Reporting and running Visual Studio requires administrative privileges, so please log-in as administrator or acquire needed rights. If you're already logged in as Administrator maybe the permissions of the Administrator account are messed up - can you run your application on another machine and verify whether the error persists?

If it does, please open a support ticket and provide us with a sample project that exhibits the problem and we would advise you accordingly.

Best wishes,
