Displaying an image in view style grid

I have an image in my table which displays if I select Cards or List but nothing is displayed if I select view style grid. All works as expected if I add or edit an image so everthing appears working as expected. Do images display in view style grid or is that some sort of limitation with view style grid. If an image can be displayed any suggestion as to why mine are not.
I am using Unlimited TouchUI latest version

    I guess it's just the way COT works. It doesn't show images in grids by default. You can do it like this: http://community.codeontime.com/codeo...

    Thanks, I will give that a try. I did find the below in the online help but nothing that explicitly said it can’t be done. Would be nice if there was some sort of tag to override the below functionality


    If “image” or multi-line text fields are detected, then desktop presentation will be switched to “responsive list” instead.

  • Do you use the grid to export?

    If you do, it will export the html text and not the image.

    You might have to implement this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7a0P... to export from another grid.

    Create a second grid to display the image and export from the original. Point the view to the second grid on page load. Point the export and reporting to the original.

  • To answer your question it is my intention to eventually export from the grid which seems easy enough when it is just basic records but in my case and probably a lot of others I have parent/child (master/detail) scenario. In the master record I also have an image. My aim is to select a master record and export it to pdf so that the PDF displays the image, the master record details and below that all of the child/detail records.
    In order to display the detail records below the master records in the view grid1 I have followed the online help and created a dashboard in which when opened has the first record selected and below that all of the detail records associated to it. I couldn’t work out how to do this directly in view grid1 so I created the dashboard.
    That’s as far as I have got so far . Thanks for the link, I will look at that next but I think I will need more assistance with this. Hopefully the above makes it easier to understand what end result I am trying to achieve
