Displaying an image stored on a website

Post by arombauts » Sun Mar 31, 2019 6:58 pm

Hello,

I have to display a series of images being part of a website. What is the best solution: using the Image object or the Browser widget. I tested both. No visible difference, nor in terms of loading speed.

Happy April's fool day tomorrow...

Well, yes one difference, unless someone can tell how to set the image size of a widget browser to a specific value without getting scroll bars...

Use CSS with "overflow:hidden".
