Property Value

Type Description

An image collection (DevExpress.Utils.ImageCollection or DevExpress.Utils.SvgImageCollection).


You can format captions of custom filter conditions (see ExcelFilteringDataEventArgs.AddFilter) using a set of simplified HTML tags.

When you compose an HTML string, you can use the image tag to insert an image from an image collection and project’s resources into the text.

To insert an image from an image collection, do the following:

  • Create an image collection (ImageCollection or SvgImageCollection) and populate it with images.
  • Assign the collection to the HtmlImages property.
  • When you use the image tag, address a target image by its name (image names can be obtained from the image collection).

e.HtmlImages = new DevExpress.Utils.ImageCollection();
e.HtmlImages.AddImage(new System.Drawing.Bitmap("D:\\pic.png"), "pic");
if(e.Column == bcModification) {
    e.AddFilter("<image=pic><nbsp>Automatic Transmission (6-speed)", "Contains([" + fieldName + "], '6A')", true);
