A.10.1.3 Display Image

Configuration for Display Image action

Configuration for Display Image action

The Display Image action uses the contents of a column to provide a URL or filename giving the location of an image to display in an internal viewer. The image can be in a graphics format such as JPEG, PNG, or GIF, or it can be a FITS image.

Note that for more sophisticated image handling, especially for FITS images, the Send FITS Image option in conjunction with an external image viewer application may be more appropriate.

Configuration:

Image Location
Gives the URL or filename of the image to display for each row. A column name may be selected from the drop-down list, or the expression language may be used to assemble a location string from other columns.
Image Viewer
Selects which of the internal image viewers will be used for display. The Basic option is always available, and SoG may be offered as well; see Appendix A.10.2.
