Display image on viewing form

I have a form app that asks a user to upload either a picture from their phone or take a picture. The picture is submitted on a form and it is stored on an excel file on onedrive. It is stored as a URL under a colum image[image]. I have another screen that can view and edit forms, but the picture does not show up, only the url is showing (blob:http://xxx). How can I get the image to show? I inserted a media > image and changed the image name in there (from sampleimage to the name of the new image) but this did not work

Hi ShanP,


Where do you get the URL of the images?

May you create an app from the template Site inspection to get some hints.

I tried with an image which is downloaded from the Internet, the URL is:

I can show the image on the detail screen.


Best regards,

The image is taken by the user . So it is either a camera pic or something they upload from their camera roll. The URL is shown on the excel file that is storing all the information

Any ideas?

Not applicable

One thing that I noticed when working with the FloorEstimate example was that the image attachments pointed to a folder where all the files were... something similar to what is shown here (You have to scroll down to point 3 of the section called "Adding images from the cloud to your app" -


So, in my case, I noticed that by having some entries already pointing to that folder, I think the app is able to note that and then starts saving all those images in the same folder (be it that I upload from my laptop, or from my cellphone)!  In one of the screenshots you shared, I saw there were no previous entries pointing to the folder where you want it stored... so maybe when the app uploads something by default it would take it somewhere in the azzure server?


Hope this helps!
