Pass blob object using SetParameterValue

Pass blob object using SetParameterValue

Pass blob object using SetParameterValue

(OP)
Hi, I am trying to get an image to display and it would need to be passed in by a parameter - the reason is the image is generated elsewhere and stored in a database as a compressed byte array. To pass it to Crystal, it's pulled from the database into code, decompressed into an image, and then needs to be passed. I've tried the following:

CODE --> C#

detailReport.SetParameterValue("@Signature", signatureBytes); 

Where signatureBytes is the byte[] containing the image data.

In Crystal, I have a matching parameter but can not select a blob object to display it as an object.

Is it possible to pass the image programatically like that?

Thanks,
James

RE: Pass blob object using SetParameterValue

Unfortunately, there is no way to do this directly. On possible workaround would be to save the uncompressed image to a file, pass the image location into the report as a parameter, and set the image on the report to look at that parameter to get the image location.
