Problem:

Use Webcam to capture snapshot of clients but has to work through terminal services (which does not connect your local webcam to your TS session).

Probable solutions:

Use standalone pc to save images to FTP site, terminal server app gets it from their.
(Any ideas on this?)

Use standalone pc to save images directly to the SQL database (BLOB) and terminal server app gets it from their.
(How do I save images to SQL and retreive them?)

Pick one , preferably option 2.

Thanks

Hi

You have an Image object or image in a file?

Private Sub Execute()
'> Read Image into Byte array
 Dim photo() as Byte = GetPhoto(photoFilePath)
 Dim connection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(connectionString)
 Dim command As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("INSERT INTO Table (Photo) Values(@Photo)", connection)
'> Assign Byte Array
 command.Parameters.Add(@Photo,SqlDbType.Image, photo.Length).Value = photo
 connection.open()
'> Execute
 command.executeNonQuery()
 connection.dispose()
End Sub

Private Shared Function GetPhoto(filePath As String) As Byte()
  Dim stream As FileStream = new FileStream(filePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read)
  Dim reader As BinaryReader = new BinaryReader(stream)
  Dim photo() As Byte = reader.ReadBytes(stream.Length)
  reader.Close()
  stream.Close()
  Return photo
End Function


If you have Image in a System.Drawing.Image object, use MemoryStream instead of Binary File Reader and turn it to Byte Array

Thanks.
