"image not provided" Dreamweaver 2004 MX, ASP.NET VB

In making a file upload optional, when someone decides not to upload a file, is there a way to make the display page appear without that broken gif image? Maybe with words that say, "image not provided" - something like that....

I know in .asp the code is something like this, but I can't get anything to work in ASP.NET VB.

<% 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 %>

What you are saying with your statement;

<% if myRecordset.Fields.Item("ImageFileName").Value <> "" then %>

is that if your "ImageFileName" field is not empty then;

<IMG SRC="/upload/<%=myRecordset.Fields.Item("ImageFileName").Value%>">

display the image named in the database field "ImageFileName".

<% else ' no image %>
Image Not Provided
<% end if ' image check %>

else display the text "Image Not Provided".  However this is checking to see that the field is not empty.

Try changing your else condition to;

<% elseif  myRecordset.Fields.Item("ImageFileName").Value = "" then ' no image %>
or
<% elseif  myRecordset.Fields.Item("ImageFileName").Value = IsNull then ' no image %>

Image Not Provided
<% end if ' image check %>

or better yet give that field a default value of "no image" or something similar, and check for that value.

<% elseif  myRecordset.Fields.Item("ImageFileName").Value = "no image" then ' no image %>

I guess that I should have been clearer, this is for a ASP.NET VB site not .asp VB.

What I am looking for is, the user has the option of adding an image or not, if they decide not to add the image I would like to get rid of the nasty little x, and replace it with some text or a blank gif.

Here is what I came up with to replace with a gif:

<img src=”<If IsNull(dsProperty("Image_01")) then response.Write("http://otherdomain.com/property/no_image.gif") else Response.Write "http://wdthost.com/property/<%# dsProperty.FieldValue("Image_01", Container) %>">

The code above is asp.net.

The problem with your statement above is that you are checking to see if the field is not empty and not checking for other conditions.

However, I'm glad that you found something that will work for you.

since you are using asp.net you can use like this

<asp:Image runat="server" id="Image"/>
<asp:label runat="server" id="ImageNotFound" text="Image Not Found"/>

Sub Page_Load()
if not isPostBack then
'query the database and get the datatable.
'check if the database value is null
'if so then say
if IsNull("Image_01") then
Image.visible=false
ImageNotFound.Visible=true
Else
ImageNotFound.visible=false
Image.visible=true
Image.ImageURL="http://otherdomain.com/property/no_image.gif"
End if
End if
End Sub

or you can use

<asp:Image runat="server" id="Image"/>

Sub Page_Load()
if not isPostBack then
'query the database and get the datatable.
'check if the database value is null
'if so then say
if IsNull("Image_01") then
Image.ImageURL ="http://otherdomain.com/property/no_image.gif"
Else
Image.ImageURL=datatable.Rows(0).Item("Image_01")
End if
End if
End Sub
