Datagrid - reference an image in a column that's stored in a database

I think you could:

- customize the ColPic column to contain an image (any image, even an empty
one)
- edit the FillInData handler of the ColPic column to use the link to
binary read the image into a variable and set the text of your image to the
variable.

There could be problems if your images are of different dimensions.
