Module 41 – Image Viewer
- Power BI Custom Visual – Image Viewer
- Dataset – Car Listings.xlsx
- Completed Example – Module 41 – Image Viewer.pbix
- Simple method for displaying images based on an image URL.
- If you have multiple images you will need to use a slicer or some other type of filter to view each of them.
In this Image Viewer we are displaying a URL of a car image. This image can be changed easily with a slicer.
- Under the Format paintbrush you will find that there are no specific format settings that can be used for the Image Viewer.
