Need Help!! <apex:image> don't have "align" parameter as tag html <img>

Hi all,

 

i have this tag, which should display an image (the id is stored in a custom field ):

 

<apex:image value="/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file={!p.image_id__c}" width="113" height="86" align="left" />

 

I need, in my website, that the text is placed to the right of this picture, but the "align" parameter does not exist in tag <apex:image>.

 

How can i do?

 

Thanks in advance!!

I would recommend using the following format

 

 

<img src="{!URLFOR($Action.Attachment.Download, !p.image_id__c)}" style="vertical-align:left" width="113" height="86">

Bulent,

 

your code works fine !!

(with align="left" and not with style="vertical-align:left", and without " ! " before p.image_id__c)

 

I always used "/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=attachmentID" to display image attached to a record, but in this case only the URLFOR Action works correctly for the tag img.

 

In particular, when i want to see a list of attached images (through <apex:repeat> ) only the <apex:image> shows these with "/servlet/servlet.FileDownload?file=attachmentID".

 

What is the exact difference between these 2 links? 

 

Thanks again!!

It's best practice not to hard code urls in the page. URLFOR function has a special logic that understands the site context and generate the correct url so if your site has a path you don't have to worry abut hard coding it. URL for knows the site context and current site and generates the correct url both when the page is rendered within the salesforce and from the public site
