With many business applications, displaying images to represent data is a common requirement. From inventory tracking to keeping contact images on file in a customer database, images often feature heavily into data capture and display.
But as an application grows, users and developers are bound to come across missing images or broken image links at some point. That's why, with Alpha Anywhere - our newly released cross platform HTML5 application development environment - we've made the handling of these missing images as easy as possible for developers, meaning a better and more consistent user experience.
