Image file does not want to overwrite.

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

 I am having an issue with saving an image file to a temp file on the server after it is cropped.  I upload the image on one page and then modify it on another with the option to rotate or crop.  I have the crop feature set as a fixed size and am using JavaScript to accomplish this.  I am getting an error when I try to save the file as the original file name to overwrite it with the modified image file.  I know this has got to be something simple that I am overlooking, but I have been looking at it for a while and can't seem to spot the problem.  I currently have the image saved as "studentid_temp.jpg" in the temp folder.  I want to overwrite this file with the new cropped version of the photo.  Below is the code that i'm using, which gives me the error: A generic error occurred in GDI+.

When I change the file ending to something different (like studentid_temp1.jpg) the new cropped image saves without a problem because it does not have to overwrite the original. 

I have set the permissions on the folder to allow read/write functionality.

Any ideas to easily accomplish this overwrite?  I thought overwrite was kind of the default when a file came across with the same name, or is it because I still have the image open from the display (how would I fix that, if that's

Insert image into Infopath form and save to SharePoint as PDF file


I have an InfoPath web-enabled form in MOSS 2007, that is integrated with a K2 blackpoint process for an approval workflow.

Once the form (a Purchase Order request form) has been approved in the K2 workflow process, I switch the form view to a "print-friendly" view for the requestor to view from the browser.  However, now I need to go one step further with this scenario:

1) I need to somehow insert/embed an image with the scanned-in signature of the approver (likely stored in a SP doc library) at the signature line section of my form.  Also, what are the security requirements for storing such images, but not granting all users access to these (e.g. only services accounts that need to access this for embedding into the form, etc.)?

2) Then I need to convert this final "print-friendly" view of the form (with the signature image) to a PDF document so that I can store it in SharePoint (and email it to the requestor using K2's email event capabilities).

Can anyone help me with a solution to both of these requirement, or point me to some resources for this (even 3rd party components are open-game).

How to delete an image file assigned to a PictureBox xontrol ?

In a Windows form application, some image files are assigned to PictureBox controls. I am trying to delete those image files. The first approach [1] with "Image.FromFile" gives an error message of "Another process is using this image file", although "Image.Dispose()" is executed. The second approach [2] using "Image.FromStream" results (X) images for PictureBoxes and Buttons, if "fs.Close()" is inclided. Without "fs.Close()", it gives the same error message of "Another process is using...". How can I display images properly and delete those images files ? Thanks [1] pictureBoxSelected.Image = Image.FromFile(@actualImage); . . . pictureBoxSelected.Image.Dispose(); pictureBoxSelected.Image = Image.FromFile(@tempImage);                                                if (System.IO.File.Exists(actualImage) == true) {     System.IO.File.Delete(actualImage); } [2] FileStream fs = new FileStream(fileName, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read); pictureBox.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(fs); fs.Close();

Rename Picture Library Image File Programmatically


Dear Experts and Forum Users,

I am stuck with renaming an image file type before it is actually saved to picture library. I am achieving this using a custom web part with file upload and a simple button control.

Please look at the code below (I have added comments so that it is easy for you to understand excactly what I am doing)

If FileUpload.HasFile Then
' Get extension of existing file
Dim ext as String = Path.GetExtension(FileUpload.PostedFile.FileName)
' Assign New Name - 'Test'
FileUpload.SaveAs(how to declare this path + "Test" + ext)
' Upload the Image to Picture Library
pictureLibraryList.RootFolder.Files.Add(FileUpload.FileName, streamImage)
' Finally Update the Picture Library
End If

Problems with this code

Firstly, it is not working because fileupload control method saveAs() and fileupload control method postedFile.saveAs() both require a rooted path in this case C:\inetput\images and not http:\\url\ some url pointing to picture library - how do I actually rename the file and also save it to the picture library ?

Please can you suggest a workaround for this.

Many Thanks,

Referencing image file stored in project resources through XAML



I'm sure this is super simple but I can't seem to figure this out.  Here is my scenario:

I have a bunch of .jpg image files that are included in a resources folder inside my project.  I want to reference them in XAML as follows:

<Image Name="SobeysImage" Stretch="Fill" ToolTip="Sobeys Image" FlowDirection="LeftToRight" Grid.Column="1" Source="Resources/sobeys1.jpg">

I get the following error message when I try to run the application:

Error 2 The file Resources\Sobeys1.jpg is not part of the project or its 'Build Action' property is not set to 'Resource'. C:\_Development\PhotoTool\PhotoTool\Window1.xaml 10 117 PhotoTool


I made sure that I set the build action of the image to Resource.


What am I missing???
