Issue:

When developing Gen applications targeting Web (Webview), bitmap images display at design tiime, but do not display at runtime.  The same application displays bitmaps successfully when targeting GUI Windows.

Resolution:

To display bitmaps within Gen Web (Webview) clients transitioning from Gen GUI Windows Clients. 

- Be sure the GUI Client Windows display the bitmaps (.bmp) on the windows successfully.  

- Convert all the .bmp bitmaps to .jpg files, using a paint package or other conversion tool.  Gen Web only accepts .jpg images. 

- Place the same named .jpg file(s) in the folder location: 'C;\...\<local_model>.ief\html\images\'

- Generate/Build/Assemble and Deploy the Gen Web application, the bitmaps will now be present at runtime.
