Download Image Activity


Downloads a requested resource at the specified URI as an image.

Inheritance Hierarchy:



This activity allows you to perform a request to download an image as a Bitmap.

A Bitmap object cannot be serialized. You must ensure that all Bitmap variables in your workflow are set to null/Nothing or go out of scope prior to running any external activities. If a Bitmap variable has a value when your workflow encounters an external activity, such as Alert or Display Form, the workflow will fail with a serialization error.

In a Workflow:

You would use this activity to download an image to add to a DataTable that you would then pass to a Template Report activity.
