RSS/xml Web Service Images in List View

[ Edited ]

Hi All,


I've been wrecking my brain and just cannot get it right.


i have a list view as follows and the data source is for example http://www.buzzfeed.com/lol.xml , which is a RSS feed.


 I'm trying to get the <image> to be displayed as a thumbnail in the imageview below.. any ideas on how to do it please?


                listItemComponents: [
                    ListItemComponent {
                        type: "header"
                        Container {
                            Label {
                                text: ""
                    ListItemComponent {
                        type: "item"
                        Container {
                            Label {
                                id: title
                                text: ListItemData.title
                                textStyle.fontSize: FontSize.Large
                                multiline: true
                                textStyle.color: Color.DarkBlue
                            Label {
                                id: pubdate
                                text: ListItemData.pubDate
                                textStyle.fontSize: FontSize.XSmall
                            Label {
                                id: description
                                text: "<html><div>" + ListItemData.description + "</div></html>"
                                textStyle.fontSize: FontSize.Small
                                multiline: true
                            ImageView {
                                imageSource: ListItemData.image
                                scalingMethod: ScalingMethod.AspectFit
                                horizontalAlignment: HorizontalAlignment.Center
                                verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Center
                                preferredHeight: 110
                                preferredWidth: 110
                                scaleX: 0.25
                                scaleY: 0.25
                            Divider {

Re: RSS/xml Web Service Images in List View

You'll have to fetch the image - the ImageView component doesn't display remote images.


This thread covers some ways to do this: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Native-Development/Loading-image-from-URL/td-p/1717927
