Can images or icons be embedded in table cells?


I’m trying to mock up a dashboard with status indicators such as red/yellow/green along with information in other cells of a row. Is there any way to do this or am I going to have to build up the mockup with images over the table?


Hi @mark.psl,

The Data Grid control does not have a feature to insert an icon or an image yet, but some users have been asking for it already. I’m adding your vote for it, to help to prioritize the request.

In the meantime, overlaying the control will be indeed the easiest way to demonstrate what you look for.

Please let us know if you need anything else, we’ll be here and happy to help! :slight_smile:


If the icons are used consistently throughout your project you may consider describing them with text after a few visual examples - your programmers should get the idea fairly quickly. :slight_smile:
