I'm using Map Tip to display image but if photo store in my computer it display ok ,example:

img src="C:\test.jpg"

But if photo store on a computer in my local network it can't display ,example:

img src = " \\computer1\Folder1\photo.jpg "

I don't know how to solve it.

  • Probably you need to start with file:///SERVER_NAME: before \computer1. Can you start your file explorer and (1) highlight the file (2) hold [SHIFT] key (3) right-click the mouse (4) copy as path (5) paste on a text editor ?

To display an image on MapTip in a network environment, we can refer the link to the source in a file:///SERVER_NAME: style.

If you are in Windows network and need to find the path to the file, please follow:

  1. Open file explorer
  2. highlight the file and hold [SHIFT] key
  3. right-click the mouse button
  4. copy as path
  5. paste on a text editor
