How to dynamically display in Image Field with external pic source

Hi Guys,

I have the following scenario:

I need to have a form that needs to display an x amount of images on the same page area. I have not found any documention with regards to creating an undisclosed number of Image Field elements, so I am experimenting with using a Table to display entries of type Image Field.

I do not know at design time which pictures will be shown in this table. This needs to be calculated dynamically when an Incident Number is supplied to the Java WebDynpro application that uses Adobe LiveCycle Designer (Dont worry about this).

Now, first of all: Is it possible to use the URL of images that are OUTSIDE the form structure? In other words, usually one would imbed the image in the forms structure, but because I do not know this image's URL at design time I need to pass it dynamically? Please comment!

Also, what is the FormCalc syntax for accessing a context field in the "Data View" view at the left side of the designer?
