Image from Network Drive

Is it possible to use the image component in vision to access an image located in a mounted network drive setup using the Ignition config file wrapper? IE file:///F:///250x250///SELIA-41.jpg will display image from mounted network drive F without it being mounted on the client machine.

When given a path like this it is relative to the client’s filesystem, not the gateway, so no.

Can the path be modified for gateway access?

I think you’d need to host the images somehow, using either WebDev or maybe putting them in some special web dir on the gateway, and then use a URL to access them.

Turned out to be an id-10-t error (idiot). The images are already hosted and can be accessed with a full url path, doh!. Thanks for the insight.
