How to display an image from Resources in a grid of a form

Axapta provides a very handy feature to allow developers to ship their solution with Axapta built-in image files. In Application Object Tree, you can find resources node. Select resources node and right click; select Create from File, specify the file location for the new resource file. After that you can use this resource file in Axapta without specifying an absolute file path in your hard disk.
Then let’s see how to use this kind of files in Axapta.

First, pick up the resource node from AOT;
SysResource::getResourceNode();

Then generate a temporary file for this resource file;
SysResource::saveToTempFile()

Finally specify the temporary file path for controls.

Here comes an example to show how to use a resource file as a background image of a given form.

If you don’t want to indicate the path to display an imge in a grid you can use : Resources in the AOT
and call your image as following :

public display FilePath ShowMyResource()
{
#AOT
ResourceNode resourceNode;
FilePath filePathLogo;
;

resourceNode = SysResource::getResourceNode(‘NameOfTheResource’);

if (resourceNode)
{
resourceNode.AOTload();
filePathLogo = SysResource::saveToTempFile(resourceNode);
}

return filePathLogo;
}
Otherwise, you can use this display Bitmap bitmap()
{
Bitmap bitmap;
Bindata binData = new BinData();

if (binData.loadFile(‘c:\\1.bmp’))
{
bitmap = binData.getData();
}
return bitmap;
}
