    Retrieving images from access database:

    I stored path of the images in access database. I am trying to display on my web page using gridview.

    My select statement is:
    select albumname,albumpic from albums.
    Hyperlink is working fine, but not displaying image.Please help.

    Here is the code.


    <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" NavigateUrl='<%#

    Eval("albumname","album.aspx?albumname={0}") %>' runat="server">
    <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl='<%#

    Eval("albumpic") %>' />

    You are still dealing with a html image tag here. Meaning you need to create a http handler to stream the image out of the database with the appropriate content-type. You then set your HyperLink to get the image from the image handler.

    Side note: Access does very badly storing binaries. Very, very bady. And that is on the desktop. For a web-facing application, you could see alot of scalability and database corruption issues.
