I have been trying to replace the Null field with a default image gif, to get rid of the little x, when there is no image to display, using Dreamweaver MX 2004, ASP.NET VB and MsSQL.

I have tried to use <img src=”<If IsNull(dsProperty("Image_01")) then response.Write("http://wdthost.com/property/no_image.gif") else Response.Write "http://wdthost.com/property/<%# dsProperty.FieldValue("Image_01", Container) %>"> and a few others with out any success.

Hi,

I would use the FileSystemsObject and the FileExists function.

There are many description on the web on how to use "FileExists"
http://www.codeave.com/asp/code.asp?u_log=60
or
http://www.w3schools.com/asp/showfile.asp?filename=demo_fileexists

You Should Do this within your SQL Statement.

Select isNull(IMG, 'image_path.gif') As IMG From Table_Name

IMG is the Colum Name in your Table.

Now when you print values on page it will replace automatically

Also make sure dsProperty("Image_01"))  actualy Stored NULL values in DB, not Blank or Empty.

To play around test it with...

if isEmpty(dsProperty("Image_01"))  


OR

if dsProperty("Image_01") = ""

From the user...

"Hi, what I have is a real estate site, on the search page there are thumbnails that will take the user to a detail page that has up to 10 thumbnail on it. About 20% of the property listings have no Image or just a few. On the pages, if there is no image uploaded for that property I need to have a default gif or no_image.gif that will replace the little x that shows up or text that says no image provided.

Now I know that in Asp VB you can use this to replace and add text:

<% if myRecordset.Fields.Item("ImageFileName").Value <> "" then %>
<IMG SRC="/upload/<%=myRecordset.Fields.Item("ImageFileName").Value%>">
<% else ' no image %>
Image Not Provided
<% end if ' image check %>

But I can’t find any thing in ASP.NET VB to do the same.

Thanks"

Did not

if isEmpty(dsProperty("Image_01"))

as adilkhan suggested help?
