Hi @bbsin ,

Sorry, only image files (jpg etc) will resolve in an image control displaying attachments - anything else will be a blank image.

Hi @bbsin ,

 

Could you please share more details about your scenario? Would you like to display PDF which is one of the Attachments of an item in the list in a Gallery?

 

If so, after testing in above scenario on my end, I'm afraid there is no way to display PDF in Image Control, and PDF Viewer could not be added into Gallery.

 

Best regards,

@v-jefferni ,

I can confirm this from a lot of prior testing - I would like greatly to be able to do this as well.

The alternative is to store the PDFs in a SharePoint Library, then the Image will show in a gallery with 

ThisItem.'{Thumbnail]'.Large

This item in my blog on the subject sets out the process.
