I am trying to find the best way to display images stored in Box on an ASP.NET web app.
I have read about “Box View” but it looks like Box View files can only be displayed using an iFrame. I would prefer to directly display the images, rather than dealing with the clunkiness of an iFrame.
In addition, using Box View requires uploading the files to an App Token application. I have hundreds of images, and unless I can upload them simply or automatically, I’d prefer to avoid an extra step like this.
I tried to look through the other APIs and their capabilities, and couldn’t find anything that simply allows me to display an image stored in Box. I could be mistaken though.
For context, I am trying to display multiple images pertaining to physical items. The other data for the items is stored in Azure, but the images are in Box. I would also like to display a pdf (stored in Box) for each of these items but figured I would tackle images first.
I am a fairly new developer so I may be lacking some understanding of how these things work. I have been bumbling around Box’s documentation and would like some guidance.
