The Image and TextBox report controls support a type of expression called Data Visualizers that allow you to create small graphs to make your data easier to understand. For example, you can red flag an overdue account using the Flags Icon Set as a background image. There are several types of Data Visualizers available through a dialog linked to properties on the Image and TextBox report controls. 

Image Data Visualizers

These Data Visualizers are supported in the Image report control Value property, and also in the TextBox report control BackgroundImage Value property. See the topics below to learn more.

Caution: In the following topics, the terms "argument" and "parameter" may seem interchangeable, but within an expression, an argument refers to the returned value of a parameter, while a parameter may be a variable.
Icon Set
Learn about the included image strips from which you can select using arguments. These include traffic lights, arrows, flags, ratings, symbols, and more, plus you can create your own custom image strips.
Range Bar
Learn how you can provide minimum, maximum, and length arguments to render a 96 by 96 dpi bar image in line with your text to show a quick visual representation of your data values.
