  • You have to add it to a view.

    var win = Ti.UI.currentWindow;

    win.add(magCover1);

  • In case anyone is searching for a solution to displaying an image from the Application Data directory from within a webview, or in a Desktop application. Any references to the file need to be prefixed with file:///

  • var f=Ti.Filesystem.getFile(Titanium.Filesystem.applicationDataDirectory, "a.jpg");
    var magCover1 = Ti.UI.createImageView({
      url: f.nativePath, 
      height:145, 
      width:114, 
      bottom:10
    });
    

    The nativePath property works also

    • 'url' is deprecated. use 'image' (but I'm sure you knew that ;) )

  • Try :

    
    var data_dir = Ti.Filesystem.applicationDataDirectory;
    var image_name = 'a.jpg';
    
    var magCover1 = Ti.UI.createImageView({
      image: data_dir+'/'+image_name, 
      height:145, 
      width:114, 
      bottom:10
    });
