It sounds to me like the JPeg graphic class/format is not registered.
Do you have the JPeg unit in your USES clause? Adding the JPeg unit to your uses clause will automatically register the graphic class. Try it. If it still doesn't work, let me know, I have a few other ideas...

Hello selas

  DBImage doesn't support Jpeg format, but you can find other DBImage components that support that, I tried few free ones, but have problems with them, so I changed to use Image component which is easy to use for showing any images from database

Here's a sample for showing the images from AdoQuery on DBCtrlGrid, without needing to any other components just drop Image component into the DBCtrlGrid, write few lines for DBCtrlGrid OnPainPanel event, and every thing will work fine ;-)


procedure TForm2.DBCtrlGrid1PaintPanel(DBCtrlGrid: TDBCtrlGrid;
  Index: Integer);
