Reproducing the Issue
- In Crystal Reports, insert a picture on the report.
- Right click on the picture, and select "Format Graphic..."
- Under the "Picture" tab, for the Graphic Location insert a link to an image located on a web server like:
- Refresh a report.
The image does not display on the report. It will be blank, or display the original image.
- The image will not display if Crystal Reports is installed on a computer that connects to a network with a proxy, because Crystal Reports does not support accessing images via a URL through a HTTP Proxy Server.
- The workarounds to display dynamic pictures are:
- Deploy the images to an intranet, where HTTP requests does not need to go through the proxy; or
- Use Crystal Reports for Enterprise, as it supports showing image via an HTTP Proxy Server.
