addResource with QUrl used in <img src> not working in MAC

  • Hello, I am writing a pdf report in HTML and what I do is to create the image that I want to add in the pdf and I make a unique identifier of it. Then, I use it in html to add the image. In windows it works very well. But I switched to MAC and i found an empty image.

    //create an unique identifier of the image. It is a trick
    //for not refering to a file. So it is not necessary to write it
    document.addResource(QTextDocument::ImageResource, QUrl("myimage"), qimage1);
    html = html +
    	"<p><img height=150 width=450 src=\"myimage\"/></p>";

    Why doesn't mac find the identifier ? I use Xcode and I don't want to use temporary image files to do that. Thank you very much.

    Where is that image supposed to be located ?

  • Thanks for answering. There is not any image file. It is created (slicing a dicom with vtk and converted to qimage. this image is created properly) and embedded in the html document and this document will be used with QPrinter to obtain a pdf. With QUrl what i get is a unique identifier and I make reference in the img tag of html. This works in windows but in mac the reference to the qimage is not considered it.

    @zandarina said in addResource with QUrl used in <img src> not working in MAC:

    this image is created properly

    maybe, probably not.

    Do you check if creation was successful ? Permissions and file directories behave slightly differently on MacOS

    The key point here, as suggested by @J-Hilk, is: where do you create these images ? Or rather, where do you store them ?

  • It is not a file, it is a screenshot of the render windows and I do it with vtk and the image is fine. yes i saw the image in the render windows. I never put this image in a file. Thanks

    Can you set that image in a QLabel and see it properly ?

  • You are right. It was not a qurl issue it was the screenshot for some reason the bounds of the render windows are not obtained with the same size. I have changed this and now i get the image.

    Thank you very much
