Using JavaScript API enhancements, client-side images can be added to documents. All supported image types can be added as Base64 encoded strings and inserted at character position, anchored to paragraphs or fixed on pages.

The TXTextControl.ImageCollection object provides methods to add images from Base64 data into the document. The following methods can be used to add images:

Method Description
addAnchored Inserts a new image which is anchored to the specified text position.
addAnchoredAtLocation Inserts a new image which is anchored to the specified text position.
addAtFixedPosition Inserts a new image which has a fixed geometrical position in the document.
addInline Inserts an image inline, which means that it is treated in the text like a single character.
