Example

The following example uses the UrlBaseName element to construct the absolute URL for a thumbnail image in a picture library.

<DisplayPattern>
   <HttpHost />
   <UrlDirName>
      <HTML>/</HTML>
      <LookupColumn URLEncodeAsURL="TRUE" Name="FileRef" />
   </UrlDirName>
   <HTML>/_t/</HTML>
   <UrlBaseName>
      <Field Name="EncodedAbsUrl" />
   </UrlBaseName>
   <HTML>_</HTML>
   <GetFileExtension>
      <Field Name="EncodedAbsUrl" />
   </GetFileExtension>
   <HTML>.jpg</HTML>
</DisplayPattern>

If the image file has a .jpg extension and is contained in a picture library on a subsite, the example creates a URL in the following form:

http://Server_Name/Subsite_Name/Library_Name/_t/File_Base_Name/_jpg.jpg
