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?

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: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-sas-overview
Again, I do not have the means to test this out but it's worth a shot I think.
Hope this helps!
Will try this out asap and report back with my findings!
I got it working with above method.
Image URL: The url to the filestorage (https://storage.file.core.windows.net/images/ for example)
Expression: The parameter containing the url to the image + the generated SAS token for that specific storage/container/fileshare
Thanks for sharing the solution Rony! Glad it works
