  • Include the blob in the xml file and Cr should be able to read it into the report.

    In the Designer create a new report and Select ADO .NET ( XML ) as the DB driver and then select your XML file which also includes the schema.

    As a test in your app write the schema to a file like so:

    ds.WriteXml("c:\\sc.xml", XmlWriteMode.WriteSchema);

    Then create your report off the XML file and you should see the images.

  • In your code that queries the database to generate the XML data source use the above to write the xml file with the images to disk. Then create a new report based on the XML file you just saved using ADO.NET ( XML ) as the reports data driver. Now you can see the format CR requires to read images from an XML file.
