Specifies an image file as a data source to be displayed by an Image element.

The file pointed to by the File property will be added to the app as a bundle file automatically.


This example displays an image from the file kitten.jpg:

    <FileImageSource File="kitten.jpg" />

Referencing from JavaScript

When building your project, Fuse needs to know which files to bundle with the app. Since UX is statically compiled, it will automatically bundle files whose path is hard-coded in one of the UX files in your project.

However, if the path comes from JavaScript or some other dynamic data source, it cannot automatically be inferred by the compiler. Thus, we need to explicitly specify it as a bundle file in our .unoproj:

"Includes": [

We can now use JavaScript to specify the path to the image:

    module.exports = {
        image: "assets/kitten.jpg"

    <FileImageSource File="{image}" />
