Size Mode


You can specify the image size mode that defines how the image fits within the dashboard item.

The image is clipped if it is larger than the Image Dashboard Item.



The image within the Image Dashboard Item is stretched or shrunk to fit the size of the Image Dashboard Item.



If the dimensions of the Image Dashboard Item exceed those of the image it contains, the image is shown full-size.

Otherwise, the image is resized to fit the dimensions of the Image Dashboard Item.



The image is sized proportionally (without clipping), so that it best fits the ImageDashboardItem.

If the aspect ratio of the Image Dashboard Item is the same as the aspect ratio of the image, it will be resized to fit into the Image Dashboard Item while maintaining its aspect ratio.

Otherwise, the closest fitting side of the image (either the height or the width) will be sized to fit the dashboard item, and the remaining side (height or width) will be sized proportionally (leaving empty space).
