Forms Data Controls :: How To Retrieve / Display Image Stored In MS SQL Via FormView
May 4, 2010
I'm amazed that it took me minutes to figure out how to retrieve text from a specific SQL database record and display it on my aspx page using FormView---and yet days later I still can't figure out how to retrieve/display the corresponding database image...(I feel like I went to a fast food restaurant, received my burger and drink in minutes---but for the fries I'm told to leave the restaurant, drive to another county, and search for the granite boulder under which I am to find the next clue in the quest to get my fries.
I don't want to waste anybody's time---I do see that this issue has come up here before (but each solution seems more complicated than the previous one): clearest way (or your favorite past thread on this topic) to retrieve/display/edit binary image data using FormView?
I am having a problem displaying an image in the fileupload tool.
This is it. I have an image upload tool and also have a VARBINARY field in the database to save the image. during the save process I add the uploaded image into the database VARBINARY field. This is how i add it.
DR["IMAGE"] = FileUpload1.FileBytes;
It saved successfully without no errors. Now after saving i need to display that image in a ImageBox control which is available in my web form. How to display an image which is saved as VARBINARY in the database into an image box?
I'm new in storing and displaying image to database.I have learn how to store image into my database from a site and seems like it work, and the image is store as binary data.Now i try to retrieve and store it, using a site as a reference
My problem is i follow everything but in the end it seems the gridview do work as it shown some data from the database but for the image, only show a small red cross "unable to show image" sign there.
My storing data and uploading image to database code (Just in case)
i want to display image which is stored in some folder and its path is stored in database table. i used your link [URL] for the same but i am not storing any thing like data column in my table and have passed name column to Byteand so its giving datatype error there. what is the way to convert it to byte?

I am trying since more than 5 days to retrieve and display an image in a web page, no success so far.1. I have a table named image, with three fields ImageID, Img_data, Img_contenttype .2. I am able to display the ImageID as a link in my page.3. On clicking the link i am going to my viewImage.aspx?img=ImageID .This far it works ok. ImageID is passing in the query string.4. In this page imageID is being captured from query string and stored in ImageIdview int variable. viewImage.aspx has an image tag to display the image as below.
I'm attempting to load DropDownLists from the C# codebehind as the FormView switches modes to Edit and displays the EditItemTemplate. I present the data in a FormView ItemTemplate using text boxes. When the user selects Edit, I have been attempting to load the EditItemTemplate dropdownlists by creating a dataset and binding it to the control, without success.
I've successfully loaded them in previous projects from within the .aspx code using <asp:ListItem> and within the C# code behind using Control.Items.Add(new ListItem), which are essentially the same thing of course . This project is different in that I want to get the data from a stored procedure on a MSSQL server.
In my latest attempt, I can see the data in the datasets. I'm getting "Error connecting to database.'eitRace' has a SelectedValue which is invalid because it does not exist in the list of items.Parameter name: value"
I include the code below. If someone could point me to an example I would be greatful. There has to be an elegant way of accomplishing this.
I have a page with an EntityDataSource and I want to insert a new item using a FormView. However, the SQL database has a varbinary field which I need to insert an image into.
So far, I have all the rest of the FormView correct and it saves no problem. I can also use the asp:FileUpload to correctly obtain the data. I am assumin that I need to add some C# code to the FormView1_ItemInserting Event Handler, but that is where I am stuck. So far, this is what I have:
Would somebody be so kind as to point me in the right direction with the correct code to add this item to the data I am saving.
I use ObjectDataSource and FormView for Editing of table data. Fields of table are to be edited by a few users.I use common page using ODS and FV (EditItemTemplate with a table) and want to succeed above purpose by allowing relevant fields to respective users.By searching through Google, I use table row's visible property like below
I know this might sound like a simple quesiton, but I am having problems allowing me to upload images along with other information (name, image, biography, wbsite links) to a sql server database, as well as showing images from the database using a drop list control feature. I am using [URL] for hosintg. VB language.
I'm having a hard time solving what should (I think) be an easy problem. I have a formview defaulting to Editmode. One of my data fields is a binary image. How can I change the editItem template to allow a user to upload a new image into the binary image field?
