Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have a table named 'CustomerPicture' which contains the fields 'finger_id' and 'Picture'

how do I load the a picture from this table into a picture box using VB.net.  
So far I am filling a dataset using;
Dim queryString As String = "SELECT * FROM CustomerPicture where Finger_ID = '" & xfinger_ID & "' "

but I am not sure what to do after that.

Thanks in advance!
