Displaying dynamic images on an iPad


Hello experts

I need to display the images on an iPad for a web I report. I have followed the below mentioned steps

  1. Create a new Web Intelligence document using eFashion universe.
  2. Insert [State], [City], [Store Name] objects into the Result
    and click Run Query.
  3. Click Variable Editor.
  4. Type Name (e.g. the picture of city) and select "Dimension" in the
  5. Type formula as below.

e.g. ="boimg://" + [City] + ".jpg"

  • Click Validate and click OK.
  • Insert above variable object into the report.
  • Select variable object and click Properties.
  • Select "Image URL" in the Read cell content as.
  • Place the image files (e.g. jpg file) in the following folder. (e.g. the
    image file names use the value of [City] such as Boston.jpg)
  • C:\Program Files\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\images

    By this , I can see the images dynamically on BI Launchpad . however on an iPad I get just text as ' boimg://imagename.jpg' but no image. Am I missing any step or do I need to configure my MOBI server ?
