Drag and drop an image file (JPEG or PNG)

1. Overview

This article shows you how to add an image to a dashboard using simple drag-and-drop operations.

You can add images to a view for styling or branding purposes (e.g. a company logo).

Dundas BI supports JPEG and PNG image file formats.

2. Drag an image file to the EXPLORE window

For this example, create a new dashboard from the main menu, and use the blank dashboard template.

Locate your image file in Windows Explorer.

Drag the image file from Windows Explorer and drop it over the EXPLORE window in Dundas BI.

3. Drag an image file directly to the canvas

Optionally, you can drag an image file from Windows Explorer and drop it directly onto the dashboard canvas (in Edit mode) instead of the Explore window. The image file will also be added to the Images folder in the Explore window automatically, and a corresponding Image component will appear on the canvas.

4. Add an image component

If you add an image component to your view from the toolbar, you can set the image by dragging an item from the Images folder in the Explore window and dropping it onto the component on the canvas.
