How to get Image returned as binary from Webservice to display in Flex

Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I have a webservice that provides text fields and an image field from a backend SQL server database. I want to display this information in a datagrid in Flex. The text is displaying OK, but the images aren't. The SOAP response identifies the images as base64encoded, and I have seen in the debugger that they have been interpreted by Flex as Byte arrays. I have tried feeding the array through a Loader, but I can only get a small placeholder to show in the datagrid - not the actual images.
