Refreshing URL Image - url based on variable

Hi,

I want to use an image on a controlpage based on a file url in a variable,
Is it possible to use a variable as value for the url?
Or can I use a variable as part of the url?

Thanks,

Regards,

Wouter

Thanks Jay,

I found that topic but as I understand it it is only for a http url link and not for a file url link.
So I was thinking off a a variable containing a file:/// url to be used as the link url.

Unfortunately file:/// paths don’t work for this. There is, however, a public web server folder in Indigo where you can place the file (or symlink to the file), thereby allowing the http:// to get it.

Thanks, was not aware of that public folder.
Will give it try.
