how to insert images into database and how to retrieve and bind images to gridview using asp.net (or) save and retrieve images from database using asp.net

Jan 2, 2011
Introduction

Here I will explain how insert and retrieve images from database and how to bind images to gridview using asp.net.

Description:

I have worked on one social networking site at that time we save all the images in to directory folder and we save image path into database at that time I got idea to implement concept like inserting images into database and retrieving the images from database and binding images to gridview using asp.net for that we need follow below steps

First Design table like this in your SQL Server database and give name as Image

Column Name
Data Type
Allow Nulls
ImageId
Int(set identity property=true)
No
ImageName
Varchar(50)
Yes
Image
image
Yes
After that Design your aspx page like this 


<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
<title>Inserting images into databse and displaying images with gridview</title>
<style type="text/css">
.Gridview
{
font-family:Verdana;
font-size:10pt;
font-weight:normal;
color:black;
width:500px;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div>
<table>
<tr>
<td>
Image Name:
</td>
<td>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtImageName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
Upload Image:
</td>
<td>
<asp:FileUpload ID="fileuploadImage" runat="server" />
</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>
</td>
<td>
<asp:Button ID="btnUpload" runat="server" Text="Upload" onclick="btnUpload_Click" />
</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>
<div>
<asp:GridView ID="gvImages" CssClass="Gridview" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
HeaderStyle-BackColor="#7779AF" HeaderStyle-ForeColor="white">
<Columns>
<asp:BoundField HeaderText = "Image Name" DataField="imagename" />
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Image">
<ItemTemplate>
<asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl='<%# "ImageHandler.ashx?ImID="+ Eval("ImageID") %>' Height="150px" Width="150px"/>
</ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateField>
</Columns>
</asp:GridView>
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>
After that add using System.IO; using System.Data.SqlClient; and using System.Configuration; namespaces and write the following code in code behind



string strcon = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["dbconnection"].ConnectionString;
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if (!IsPostBack)
{
BindGridData();
}
}
/// <summary>
/// btnUpload_Click event is used to upload images into database
/// </summary>
/// <param name="sender"></param>
/// <param name="e"></param>
protected void btnUpload_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
//Condition to check if the file uploaded or not
if (fileuploadImage.HasFile)
{
//getting length of uploaded file
int length = fileuploadImage.PostedFile.ContentLength;
//create a byte array to store the binary image data
byte[] imgbyte = new byte[length];
//store the currently selected file in memeory
HttpPostedFile img = fileuploadImage.PostedFile;
//set the binary data
img.InputStream.Read(imgbyte, 0, length);
string imagename = txtImageName.Text;
//use the web.config to store the connection string
SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(strcon);
connection.Open();
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("INSERT INTO Image (ImageName,Image) VALUES (@imagename,@imagedata)", connection);
cmd.Parameters.Add("@imagename", SqlDbType.VarChar, 50).Value = imagename;
cmd.Parameters.Add("@imagedata", SqlDbType.Image).Value = imgbyte;
int count = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
connection.Close();
if (count == 1)
{
BindGridData();
txtImageName.Text = string.Empty;
ScriptManager.RegisterStartupScript(this, this.GetType(), "alertmessage", "javascript:alert('" + imagename + " image inserted successfully')", true);
}
}
}
/// <summary>
/// function is used to bind gridview
/// </summary>
private void BindGridData()
{
SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(strcon);
SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("SELECT imagename,ImageID from [Image]", connection);
SqlDataAdapter daimages = new SqlDataAdapter(command);
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
daimages.Fill(dt);
gvImages.DataSource = dt;
gvImages.DataBind();
gvImages.Attributes.Add("bordercolor", "black");
}
Here we need to restrict user to upload only image formats in file upload control for that validaiton check this post how to validate file type in file upload control using javascript

After Completion of above code we need to add HTTPHandler file to our project to retrieve images from database because we save our images in binary format getting the binary format of data from database it’s easy but displaying is very difficult that’s why we will use HTTPHandler to solve this problem.

Here HTTPHandler is a simple class that allows you to process a request and return a response to the browser. Simply we can say that a Handler is responsible for fulfilling requests from the browser. It can handle only one request at a time, which in turn gives high performance.

Right Click on your project add new HTTPHandler.ashx file and give name as ImageHandler.ashx and write the following code in pagerequest method like this 

string strcon = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ConnectionString"].ToString();
public void ProcessRequest(HttpContext context)
{
string imageid = context.Request.QueryString["ImID"];
SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(strcon);
connection.Open();
SqlCommand command = new SqlCommand("select Image from Image where ImageID=" + imageid, connection);
SqlDataReader dr = command.ExecuteReader();
dr.Read();
context.Response.BinaryWrite((Byte[])dr[0]);
connection.Close();
context.Response.End();
}

Here don’t forgot to set the connection string in web.config file here I am getting database connection from web.config file for that reason you need to set the connectionstring in web.config file like this

<connectionStrings>
<add name="dbconnection" connectionString="Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB"/>
</connectionStrings>

any idea to delete the row containing images in the datagridview, its giving error in the http handler

Suresh Dasari said...

hi manju,
Check this post to delete gridview records

http://www.aspdotnet-suresh.com/2011/01/how-to-delete-records-in-gridview-with.html

Here we are inserting images in database so if we delete record in database that is enough. Here you need to remember one point that is after delete record again rebind your gridview with latest data.

manju said...

thanks suresh

i got it

Hi suresh,

I am working with Image web gallery so I am trying to use jquery uploadify to upload images and store them in folder and at the same time I need to save them to sql Server database.But I am failing in doing that Can you do me an article regarding that.So that I need to resize the Images while uploading an save them in seperate foldder and the original one's in another folder.And I need to display those Images after loading using list view or gridview as you did.if you give me any ideas that will be very helpful to me.

ramesh said...

This is my handler code:


public class Upload : IHttpHandler {

public void ProcessRequest (HttpContext context) {
context.Response.ContentType = "text/plain";
context.Response.Expires = -1;
try
{
HttpPostedFile postedFile = context.Request.Files["Filedata"];

string savepath = "";
string tempPath = "";
tempPath = System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["FolderPath"];
//tempPath = context.Request["folder"];
savepath = context.Server.MapPath(tempPath);
string filename = postedFile.FileName;
if (!Directory.Exists(savepath))
Directory.CreateDirectory(savepath);

postedFile.SaveAs(savepath + @"\" + filename);
//Fileupload.UploadToDatabase(savepath + @"\" + filename);


SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ImagesConnectionString"].ToString());
//Open the database connection
con.Open();
//Query to insert images path and name into database
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Insert into Image(ImagePath) values(@ImagePath)", con);
//Passing parameters to query
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@ImagePath", filename);
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
//Close dbconnection
con.Close();


context.Response.Write(tempPath + "/" + filename);




//context.Response.Write(filename);
context.Response.StatusCode = 200;
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
context.Response.Write("Error: " + ex.Message);
}


}



public bool IsReusable {
get {
return false;
}
}

Hello Suresh Sir..

I really liked the Article. I read too many articles about saving images in DB but this is the simplest and easy to understand. thanks.

Also i have a query how can i add java script ( like On mouse over a particular image the image should be shown in another panel) to the images that i am retrieving in my Datalist from database.

I have the java script to do it but don't know how to do it on images that are dynamically retrieved.

kiran said...

i wrote the code step by step as you said, but it is showing error "ImageID could not be null"

2) i changed the property value of table as ImageID set to null values true. and i debug it , then it is storing images showing message "saved successfully" but if i check in table , imageID is showing empty.
3) and in gridview control, the image control doesn't showing the stored image, it is showing like breaking image control.
why i am getting these errors? give me the solution pls

Suresh Dasari said...

@kiran,
In table design i said we need to set the Identity Property true for ImageID column once we set whenever insert record automatically ImageID column fill with value(like 1,2,3...) otherwise you need to enter values manually. I think you forgot to set the Identity Property for ImageID coulumn and check your images path.

MY IMAGES ARE NOT GETTING DISPLAYED CAN PLEASE GUIDE ON THIS ?

Seema said...

Why these pics wont display.... i really exhausted.. plz guys somebody help me ... i have followed the steps exactly.. and downloaded these attached file and compared it with mine .. but it still not working ..

the code i working properly but the images don't display .. it shows red "X" instead.

plzzzzzzzzzzzz help me.

Seema said...

finally i found the solution..

for those who r facing a problem with displaying the image .
you just have to add a new webForm and do the retrieve process through it.
don't combine both of codes(store image and retrieve image) together in the same form..

copy this code for binding the data in the gridview, and past it in the form load of the new webForm(to retrieve the image) and design a gridview as specified above ... instead of writting the function of binding the data for the gridview in the form of storing the images.

that's it .. hope i was clear in explaining it

Suresh Dasari said...

@adi...
if you are getting cross mark means please check your handler code whether you are getting data from database correctly or not and to display image based on dropdownlist selection means you need to pass image id then get those record details from database and display it on your page.

Hi Suresh,
Keep the Good work going.

I have a similar DB as you have shown except in my assignment I have to use varchar type to store Img path rather then the img it self in the database.

Now using the Grid itself I have to Add the add the img by browsing to the img path and then on "OK" I have to show the img in the grid rather then its path.
A hint that I had got from my Faculty is use a File Upload Control.
Now I am really saturated trying to figure it out...

Your code is working fine, except image. Instead of grid view I'm using data-list in that i'm getting all data even for image url also like this("ImageHandler.ashx?ImID=5"), data what it is fetching is correct but image is not getting displayed through image handlerfile. This image handler file not get fired only in this datalist. same datahandler I used to display image once i upload a image by that time it is working fine, please guide me how to display image in datalist.

DataRow dr = dt.NewRow();
dr["imagename"] = "Image1";
dr["ImageID"] = @"D:\Mathi_Working\01816_Backup\Mathi\Images\9.gif";

dt.Rows.Add(dr);


DataRow dr1 = dt.NewRow();

Sandeep said...

Hi,
I was able to load the image on the page using this however the handler.asps/.ashx is running when the current page lifecycle ends (i.e. after the page load completes). In my case I am creating the image control dynamically(there can be multiple image controls) and I need to fetch and bind the images corresponding to each control. Using the above technique only the last image URL gets assigned to the image control, the rest of the images show up blank. Can I get some help on this?
