Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am trying to get the height and width of the image dynamically.  The reason is I am loading multiple images using code, where the image name is from the database.

In the code behind

string ImagePath = "~/products/img/" + dataviewImgInfo[0]["imgName"].ToString();

System.Drawing Image imgProd = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(ImagePath);

if(imgProd.Height > 200)

imgInfo.Height = 100;




imgInfo.Height = 200



WHen I run this page I am getting the folloiwng error

System.Drawing.Image.FromFile crashes for tiff files on 64bit system


The following pice of code runs fine on my development machine (win7, 32bit) but ends with Exception on the server (Win2008R2, 64bit).


        static void Main(string[] args)


            Image image = Image.FromFile(args[0]);





The exception will be thrown for TIFF files (from other sources) but ie not for PNG files.

I was wondering why the test program above works fine on my Win 32bit machine with .NET 4 but not on my 64bit machine with .NET 4.

Any help appreciated.

image resizer not working


I thought the following image resizer with the following code was working with smaller images but one thing I know for sure is that it's not working with larger ones. I want to have a max height of 300 px. The dimensions work out fine but don't save with the file. If someone can help me understand a better way, I'd appreciate it.

    Protected Sub FormatImage(ByVal ful As FileUpload, ByVal strFile As String) 
        Const intMaxWidth As Integer = 300 'max width
        Const intMaxHgt As Integer = 300 'max height
        Dim intNewWidth, intNewHgt As Integer 'new width/height
        Dim sglSize As Single 'temp variable used when calculating new size
        Dim imgOriginal As Image 'holds the original image
        Dim dblWidthProp, dblHgtProp As Double
        imgOriginal = Image.FromStream(ful.FileContent)
        intNewWidth = imgOriginal.Width
        intNewHgt = imgOriginal.Height
        Dim imgOutput As New Bitmap(intNewWidth, intNewHgt)
        If strFile IsNot Nothing And CheckFileFormat(strFile) = True Then
                Do While intNewWidth > 300 Or intNewHgt > 300
                    dblWidthProp = imgOriginal.Width / intMaxWidth
                    dblHgtProp = imgOriginal.Height / intMaxHgt
                    If dblWidthProp > dblHgtProp Then

EventType clr20r3, P1 devenv.exe, P2 9.0.30729.1, P3 488f2b50, P4 system.drawing, P5, P6 488

Hi,I am facing a strange issue in Visual Studio 2008 Standard SP1, when using WPF Designer (even without using the Designer tab, only XAML tab). Visual Studio crashes very often, without any apparent reason, and in various ways, for example: exits instantly, the IDE displays corrupted UI, when begining compiling it stops responding.There are two new Event Log entries after this: EventType clr20r3, P1 devenv.exe, P2 9.0.30729.1, P3 488f2b50, P4 system.drawing, P5, P6 4889dec2, P7 33d, P8 18, P9 system.outofmemoryexception, P10 NIL. .NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3053 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (7A2E0F92) (0)Worth mentioning:- computer has Windows XP SP3 with the latest updates installed- it crashes on other computer types too- the project has quite a large number of UserControls - it appears that if opening a XAML file with the XML editor instead, it works ok- on other WPF projects it also works okDoes anyone have an ideea why is this happening and solutions? Thanks

Working with System.IO.Path static class

Hello everyone. Today, I was exploring the System.IO namespace in .NET 4.0 on an ASP.NET web application where I came to few changes, comparing with the previous versions of .NET, related to the System.IO.Path static class. The Path class contains the same method names in .NET 2.0, 3.5 as well as 4.0, only (in .NET 4.0) new overloads are added to System.IO.Path.Combine() method. In the following blog post, I will show the usage of few methods belonging to the System.IO.Path static class, as well as, the changes in Combine() method added in .NET 4.0. Besides the first method that is available in the previous versions for combining two string paths, now in .NET 4.0 you can combine unlimited strings to the path. Note: For testing purpose, on your web application root, create folders with name Files, Files/SubFolder, Files/SubSubFolder and add three text files: text1.txt (in Files), text2.txt (in Files/SubFolder), text3.txt (in Files/SubFolder/SubSubFolder).   Here are few examples:             string path1 = System.IO.Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("Files"), "text1.txt"); //this will give the path to %WEBAPP_ROOT%/Files/text1.text -             string path2 = System.IO.Path.Combine(Server.MapPath("Files"), "SubFolder", "text2.txt"); //this will give

Visio Web Drawing Not Working

Hello   I have created a Visio 2010 Drawing, and saved it as a web drawing to my sharepoint 2010 server. Visio 2010 - Version: 14.0.4760.1000 (32-bit) SharePoint 2010 - Version 14.0.4763.1000 (64-bit) When i create a page and add a visio web access webpart and then open my web drawing i get an error which reads: 'The Server failed to process the request' The Event Viewer shows the following error: Failed to get Vector Diagram for visio file page Exception : The server was unable to process the request due to an internal error. For more information about the error, either turn on IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults (either from ServiceBehaviorAttribute or from the <serviceDebug> configuration behavior) on the server in order to send the exception information back to the client, or turn on tracing as per the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 SDK documentation and inspect the server trace logs. I have tried google, bing and technet but cant find an answer. I have a secure store target spplication id set up and credentials set and have added that information to the visio graphic service global settings. Any ideas what i can do to fix this issue?

Image stretch inside a grid stops working horizontally once columns are added to grid.

I have a simple setup of a window. Window contains a grid, inside the grid there is an image. I want the image to always stretch across the entire cell. I've set it's Stretch property to Fill and it works fine, as long there is only one column in the parent grid. As the window is resized, the image stretches correctly. As soon as I add another column, the image stops stretching horizontally. Vertially it works just like before, horizontally it now appears with a fixed width corresponding to the width of the picture used as the source. Does not matter which column it's positioned in, and I've tried encapsulating it into another grid but behaviour does not change. It behaves the same in both Visual studio 2010 designer and at runtime. In addition when I tried to encapsulate it in a second grid, this seond grid also now has altered behavior - instead of sizing itself to it's container (both height and width are not set) as it's parent grid does, it now sizes itself to its contents - the image. But only horizontally. What is going wrong here, is this a bug or am I missing something, and any advice on how I can get the image to fill one of the cells of a grid with more then one column?

WPF TreeView working with Image Files
