for accessing standard lightning SLDS resource image in the Lightning component i am using below tag but i can't able to see the image.

<img src="{!$Asset.SLDS+'/assets/icons/utility/chevrondown_60.png'}" />

if anybody knows the how to access the image in the Lightning component help me (Spring 17).


If you want to use icons from SLDS in Lightning Component, you should use the lightning:icon Base Component:

<lightning:icon iconName="utility:chevrondown" size="small"/>

You can then use attributes like size or variant to display the icon in the size and color you want.

  • yes but this tag only will work on the component file. can you refer this link. in that some body gave solutions but if i add multiple images then i have to use this $A.createComponent() multiple times . it is not efficient solution. Mar 10 '17 at 7:24
  • I am not sure to understand, in your question you are talking about an <img src > tag, this is also in the component file. Where do you want to use it ? Mar 10 '17 at 10:56
  • I want to use in helper js. example $('#devId').html('<lightning:icon iconName="utility:chevrondown" size="small"/>'). but its not working. Aug 21 '17 at 11:22

Try this Like

<img src="{!$Resource.SLDS + '/assets/icons/utility/chevrondown_60.png'}"/>

    it will not work. juts $Resource.SLDS is is refer static resource path name SLDS. but in my case i am not using any Static resource for referring the lightning design system. i am referring the Asset.SLDS. Mar 10 '17 at 7:34

I think that you will need to install a helper Lightning Component to render the Lightning Design System icons, try reading this: https://www.lightningdesignsystem.com/resources/lightning-svg-icon-component-helper/ it may help you.
