Show images in Spotfire Table

Imagine that you have a data table like this:

Service Name Service Id
Slack slackhq
Travis CI travis-ci
Zenhubio zenhubio
Atom atom

And you would like to see icon images in the "Service Id" column.

You know there is a storage with images, with URLs like this:

https://assets-cdn.github.com/images/modules/site/integrators/${Service Id}.png

So, actually these images should be used instead of appropriate "Service Ids":

https://assets-cdn.github.com/images/modules/site/integrators/slackhq.png
https://assets-cdn.github.com/images/modules/site/integrators/travis-ci.png
https://assets-cdn.github.com/images/modules/site/integrators/zenhubio.png
https://assets-cdn.github.com/images/modules/site/integrators/atom.png

It is easy to achieve it in the Spotfire:

  • Open "Table Properties" -> "Columns"
  • Select column
  • Set "Renderer" type as "Image from URL"
  • Click "Settings..." and put your URL with {$} as a placeholder
