We would like to embed an image in DevExpress from our Azure File Storage. DevExpress doesn't seem to like it though. It handles Blob files without a care in the world.

Anybody that knows of a possible solution?

Hi Rony,

Maybe it's possible to add a Picture box to your Report and submit the URL to obtain the file inside the Image URL property. The authentication can be done using a SAS-token I believe, allowing you to access the file without having to log in. Link:

Again, I do not have the means to test this out but it's worth a shot I think.

Hope this helps!

I got it working with above method.

Image URL: The url to the filestorage ( for example)

Expression: The parameter containing the url to the image + the generated SAS token for that specific storage/container/fileshare
