Images can be used to brighten up your application. Navigation items and the various kinds of buttons have small images (icons) to left of their captions. Images can also be used in the image viewer widgets in pages and document templates. Also, enumeration values can have images that can then be shown in data grid columns.
The System module contains some images that are used by the standard components. If you place a data view on a page, the Save and Cancel buttons will have images from the System module on them. You can always use different images if you like. The same holds for images on the control bar buttons of the data grid.
This sort of image is called a static image as it is always the same. For example, the icon you put on a save button will always look the same whatever object you are saving.
If you want different images to appear for different objects (for example, a picture of a product) these images should be stored as images in the database. See How To Work with Images & Files for more information.
2 Supported Formats
The following image formats are supported: png, jpeg, gif, bmp, and svg. The png format is recommended, as it is compressed without losing any information and supports transparency very well.
3 Custom Images
You should not add custom images to the existing image collections in imported modules, for example in the Atlas UI module. If you do this, there is a risk that they may be overwritten if you import a new version of the module at a later date.
Once you have added images to an image collection, you can use them in any module in your app.
If you need to refer to an image in an image collection from CSS or custom widgets, the name of the image will be
