Writing image binary data to the Response

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

Hi there,

I've created 2 web user controls. A = User control that displays an image, and B is the user control that hosts A. I'm trying to stream an array of bytes to A, but it seems like the Response.BinaryWrite method completely overwrites any heirachial controls (I can't see any of B's other controls besides the image).

How do I get A to just display the image from the byte stream? It doesn't come from a database, it's an image I created on the fly.

A's code:

        public void UpdateImage(byte[] imgbytes)
            Response.ContentType = "image/jpg";

Binary Data Not Writing to Database


I have an ASP.NET app that writes binary data to a SQL database.  It worked fine using SQL Express, but does not ever write the data using SQL Server 2008 R2.  SQL Profiler shows the binary data in the UPDATE query, but nothing happens... no errors, no data saved.  Does anyone know what I'm missing?  Other data types work fine.

My data type is VarBinary(MAX)...


Binary Data Not Writing to Database

This may be more of a dev question, but I have an ASP.NET app that saves binary data to a SQL database.  It worked fine to a SQL Express 2008 database, but does not work on a SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard.  SQL Profiler shows the binary data in the UPDATE query, but nothing is ever actually written to the database.  I cannot find any errors either.  I have no problems writing other types of data.  Any ideas?

How to insert Binary Image data from XML To Excel using XSLT

I had created a XSLT which converts the XML file generated from the system to the excel format. The XSLT has the styles required for this transformation.

Now i am told to insert image in one of the excel columns using XSLT. The image is in binary code format in the XML file.

Tried to google but could not found the syntaxes for this. Let me know if anyone has done the image embedding in excel using XSLT.


ASP.Net Create physical image from binary data in Sybase


I want to extract an image from a third party Sybase table which has binary data in it.

To store images they use the following query:

SELECT xp_write_file('C:\photo-1.gz', col_name) FROM tbl_name

What I am trying to do is convert the binary data stored to a actual physical file using .Net

Any help would be appreciated.

Writing Data to database with jQuery Forms, ASMX Webservice, & JSON - help!



Can someone point me in the right direction on how to submit data from a jQuery form to a ASMX webservice? I have gotten everything on the form ready to be submitted to the database and now I am stuck on how to send it over using $.ajax(). Everything I have read tells me how to get data from a webservice and display it with jQuery, but not the other direction nor how to access the json data within the within the webservice service(similar to a Request.Form approach with ASP.NET forms).

In other words: 

1. What do I need to do to my webservice to make sure it can receive data from the jQuery form. 

2. What do I need to do in jQuery to receive an acknowledgement the save on the server side was successful. 

I can explain more if need be, but if there is a comprehensive tutorial on not only reading, but also WRITING data with jQuery, JSON, etc. I would love to get pointed in that direction.

Problem with passing an Image as binary through web service



I have a web service that is accessed by a windows forms application and receives updates like facility name, address, image etc. Everything works fine except the image data is not being passed to the windows app. I am saving the images in database on both sides, so when I pull it from the server I use the following code

if (!reader.IsDBNull(floorPlanOrdinal))

facility.FloorPlan = (byte[])reader["FloorPlan"];

I can see the facility.FloorPlan Dimentions as 103840 when I debug this method which means that the data is pulled from the database fine.

On the forms side though the dimentions become 0, all other values pass fine except this. Here is the facility property in the web service on server side.

Writing Bitmap to Response.OutputStream - Generic Error Occured in GDI+



This is what I'm trying to do when I get the error on the server (it works on my local machine):

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image); 

Response.ContentType = "image/bmp";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);

I don't think it can be a permissions problem because this works on the server:

System.Drawing.Image image = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(filepath);
System.Drawing.Bitmap bmp = new System.Drawing.Bitmap(image);

Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg";
bmp.Save(Response.OutputStream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

So how do I get this to work for a bitmap?

How to store binary data as nvarchar(max)?

I’m trying to store a blob of binary data as nvarchar(max) and it gets truncated after just a few bytes. I wonder why and how can I prevent it. I don’t use varbinary(max) because I’m trying to keep existing DB schema intact. Current DB contains a huge chunks of text in nvarchar(max) column and I’m trying to compress (zip) this text and store it back to the same field to reduce DB size.   DB is accessed using Sync Framework (and Entity Framework) on the client side, so actual DB engine is SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2   Thank you! KonstantinThank you! Konstantin
