Dynamicly adding images to detail lines in Crystal Reports for .NET

All,

Is there a simple way to manipulate the details section of a Crystal Report
at runtime on a per-record basis?

The reason I want to do this is that my database table contains an image url
field, but in my report I have to show the image rather than its location.

I have looked for events that would be thrown when CR generates the details
section for each record but I couldn't find any and I am starting to fear
having to paint the whole report myself.

Thanks in advance for your tips and comments,

Guy Mahieu

ps: I am currently using VS .NET 2003 EA with the included version of CR

I'm not too much up on images using Crystal but you can use a formula field
as a data item in the detail section. The formula field can vary it's content
based on the data so if you can make the formula field represent a variable
image then that would do it.
