Property Value

Type Description

A UrlAccessSecurityLevel enumeration value.


The XRPictureBox.ImageUrl property of the XRPictureBox report control does not accept the "file://" protocol by default to prevent unauthorized access to images on the server (e.g., BMP, PNG and JPG files). The same applies to the XRRichText report control when images are added using the IncludePicture field. For security reasons, both these controls only support the "http://", "https://" and "ftp://" protocols by default.

To enable using the "file://" protocol for loading images, use the corresponding methods (UrlAccessSecurityLevelSetting.RegisterCustomBaseDirectories and UrlAccessSecurityLevelSetting.RegisterCustomCallback) or set the SecurityLevel property to one of the following UrlAccessSecurityLevel enumeration values.
