Hi,
Im trying to add a column that will display an image from the WWW e.g not from the web app itslef

i have created a custom column but it doesn't seem to display anything at all ...

 public override FrameworkElement CreateCellElement(Telerik.Windows.Controls.GridView.GridViewCell cell, object dataItem) 
        { 
             
            var cellImage = new Image() { Width = 50, Height = 50 }; 
            string imageUri = string.Empty; 
            // here i just get a URL 
            Dictionary<String, String> mapData = MainPage._Gfields[this.DataMemberBinding.Path.Path].ValueMap.MapData; 
            if (mapData.ContainsKey((string)cell.Value)) 
                imageUri = mapData[(string)cell.Value]; 
            else 
                imageUri = mapData["*"]; 
            // image URL is like: http://some-remote-URL/sample.gif 
            cellImage.Source = new BitmapImage(new Uri(imageUri, UriKind.Absolute));

Hi Alon,

Displaying gif images in Silverlight is not supported in general.

Best wishes,
