1. Rename a image file and insert a # in the name.

2. Drag the image to the plot

Now, the ImageBox element is shown and the actual image is not added.

It would be nice to see an error message saying that # is not allowed in the filename.

What about other special characters?

I think it is becaus the “#” charactor is regarded as anchor in URL. For example, when parsing “File:///C:a#b.gif” as URL, the “#b.gif” part is regarded as an anchor, so ForeUI will try to import “C:a” file, which does not exist actually.

Yes we can add an error message for that.
