ASPxHtmlEditorSettings.AllowInsertDirectImageUrls Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether direct links to the specified images located on other web sites are allowed to be inserted into the editor's HTML markup.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web.ASPxHtmlEditor

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.ASPxHtmlEditor.v19.2.dll


public bool AllowInsertDirectImageUrls { get; set; }
Public Property AllowInsertDirectImageUrls As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description


true if direct links to external images are allowed; false to download external images to the web site's upload folder and refer to them using local paths.


Use the AllowInsertDirectImageUrls property to specify whether the ASPxHtmlEditor allows inserting direct links to external images located on other web sites.

Note that if direct image links are allowed, they may be a potential cause of harmful actions (for instance, a specific harmful script can try to run if it's assigned as an external image's Load event handler).

To avoid using direct links, set the AllowInsertDirectImageUrls property to false. In this case, any specified external image is first downloaded to a specific folder on the application's web server, and then it's referred to within the editor using its local path. Use the ASPxHtmlEditorImageUploadSettings.UploadImageFolder property, to specify the folder that contains uploaded images used by the ASPxHtmlEditor control.
