Hi Expert,

I am trying to stream some data from the net.

Could someone have a look at this code and tell me where I'm going wrong in creating the stream please?

Data : TMemoryStream; //The Stream
DataString : String;

Data := TMemoryStream.Create;


DataString :=('http://www.AWebsite.co.uk/Ceiling.jpg');

CeilingTex := DJXTextureList1.CreateTextureFromStream(Data,'ceiling');

Thanks

Try Like this


Data : TMemoryStream; //The Stream
DataString : String;

Data := TMemoryStream.Create;

Data.LoadFromFile(FileName);
Data.position:=0;


DataString :=('http://www.AWebsite.co.uk/Ceiling.jpg');

CeilingTex := DJXTextureList1.CreateTextureFromStream(Data,'ceiling');
