I have on my site a Business Data Connectivity list with a field which equals some urls.

I found some internet links to change the url text to the image which the text points on. But it's not working.

This is my list:

enter image description here

And these are the fields with the text url:

<td class="ms-vb">
    <xsl:attribute name="style">
        <xsl:when test="$dvt_1_form_selectkey = @*[name()=$ColumnKey]">color:blue</xsl:when>
        <xsl:otherwise />
    <xsl:variable name="fieldValue">
      <xsl:call-template name="LFtoBR">
        <xsl:with-param name="input">
          <xsl:value-of select="@url" />
    <xsl:copy-of select="$fieldValue" />

What should I change to show the text from the url field as a picture which the url points on?

It should work if you selected the field type as Hyperlink or Picture and selected the option, 'Picture'

  • Where can i format the field as such a Hyperlink or Picture in a BCS List?

  • Go to the list definition and then to the column definition. You should have an option to choose 'Picture'
