Remarks

Use the DataImageUrlField property to specify the name of the field to bind to the ImageUrl property of each image in an ImageField object. The specified field must contain the URLs for the images to display in the ImageField object. You can optionally format the URL values by setting the DataImageUrlFormatString property.

Note

When the filed value is null, an image cannot be displayed. You can display an alternate image for null field values by setting the NullImageUrl property. Instead of an alternate image, you can display alternate text by setting the NullDisplayText property.
