Display binary data from User Function in Crystal Report?
Is it possible to create a User Function Library in Java that returns a binary stream and display this output in a report as an OLE object?
The reason for this is I have html text that will have links to images that are stored in a zip file. I would like to create a library that parses this html and extracts and displays the images inline (where the links to the image files are in the html). I cannot see how it is possible to achieve this using just Crystal, but I think it would be possible to construct the html and images and output a graphical representation to then display in the report.
But I need to know if this is possible, and what I would need to do to display the binary stream from the library in an OLE object in a report.
