    Hi guys,

    I download an image from my server and store in File.DirDocuments. I want to display the image in webview using html but the image doesn't show.

    I log the destination folder and show:
    myimage.jpg written to /var/mobile/Containers/Data/Application/5E43A1B2-2468-123B-A456-B1BB22F330BC/Documents/
    I build my html like:
    strHtml = strHtml & $"<p><img src="file://"$ & File.Combine(File.DirDocuments, "myimage.jpg") & $"" width="100%"></p>"$
    Is there a workaround?

    You are not using the string literal correctly.

    strHtml = strHtml & $"<p><img src="file://${File.Combine(File.DirDocuments, "myimage.jpg")}" width="100%"></p>"$
    You can load images from File.DirDocuments.
    File.Copy(File.DirAssets, "smiley.png"File.DirDocuments, "1.png")
    $"<img src="file://${File.Combine(File.DirDocuments, "1.png")}"/>"$)
