Reading Image Control into Binary Stream

Hi,

Is there a way by which I can read data from my web form's image control into binary stream.
And then save that stream to server as image file.

or can I read an image file on users computer into a binary file.

Which technology you want to use?

PHP, ASP, Script?

Here you have an example using vbscript:

thanks ch2,

thanx for replying.

the code in the url is written in VBScript, I doubt that it will work in my case because I want to read the file from the client's hard disk, and that can be achieved with javaScript only.

I also read an article which uses the exact technique provided by you in the url, using javascript.

I tried to write the code in Javascript, but I got stuck, here is my code

    var BinaryStream = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Stream")
    BinaryStream.Type = 1;
    BinaryStream.Open();
    BinaryStream.LoadFromFile("d:\\temp\namrata.jpg");

the last line do not execute successfully.

I think you cannot do that only with javascript.

Would work using server-side scripting like perl, asp, php.
