    Pasting images directly into a web based Infopath Rich text box

     Hi all I have a web based Infopath form.

     In this form I have a rich text box  where I would like users to be able to paste images directly into the text box, apparently in the Infopath editor it says that web Infopath forms rich text boxes are not allowed. However it seems to semi working allowing me a limited abitllity to have rich text in the box.

    However if i try and paste an image it does not paste the image into the box.

    Has anyone encountered this and if so is there a possile work around?

    Thanks

    Hi reiqwan,

    Rich Text Box control cannot display embedded images when you use the control in browser forms, it can display linked images. The image must be published on a web server and accessible through an URL. You can then use an IMG element to add a link to the image to the Rich Text Box field. This will display the image in the Rich Text Box control in the browser form.

    Go through the following link to get more information.

    It is surprising that they would support that in the browser version. I would have thought arbitrary img tag links would constitute a potential security/privacy issue and would need to be stripped.

     InfoPath 2010 rich text does not support embedded images too, right? I tried to find a way, but I couldn't.

    Regards,
