    Take a look at this devshare. It shows how to encode an image as base64 then display it. Since it sounds like you've already got the image stored in your db as base64 you should be able to skip the encoding and use the second part of the script to display the image.

    thanks for your reply

    I not understand for that code

    var myurl = URL("";);
    var img =;
    bas = new ByteArrayOutputStream();
    ImageIO.write(img, "gif", bas);

    encodedimga = Base64.encodeBase64(bas.toByteArray());
    encodedimg = new String( encodedimga, "utf-8");
    imgsrc = "data:image/gif;base64,"+encodedimg+"\"";

    the first 1, it encode the image to binary.
    but, i already have 64binary code...
    so, can skip it

    but the second one, what the value for bas?
    i try replace it as
    this.getRowData().getColumnValue("B_CONTENT") // b_content is my column
    but can't work

    I have a solution about that
    just use the text only..

    <value-of format="HTML">
    if(row["B_CONTENT"] == null) {"";}else{
    "<img src='data:image/png;base64,"}</value-of><value-of format="HTML"> row["B_CONTENT"]</value-of><value-of format="HTML">
    if(row["B_CONTENT"] == null ) {"";}else{"' height='120' width='100' />"}

  • I am not familiar with this example, but the tags typically are entered in a Text element. Add a Text element from the Palette to a table cell, change its type to "HTML" in the editor, and enter the code. The JavaScript will run as normal and the data (i.e. row["B_CONTENT"]) will automatically be filled in with the data value for the column specified for each row that is generated.
