Hi

 I'm trying to fix the code so I can Insert a image from a picture box to a BLOB filed in my MySQL table
and also read the Image from the BLOB filed and put it back to the picturebox.

this is the code I have now, Need some help to fix it.


        Dim MySQLHandler As New SQL.MySQLDotNet.ExecuteNonQuery

        Dim FieldName As String = "Image"
        Dim QueryString As String = "UPDATE tbl_employed SET( " & FieldName & " ) = ( @" & FieldName & " ) WHERE EmpNr = '" & m_strEmployedNumber & "'"
        MySQLHandler.InsertImageToBLOB(QueryString, FieldName, PictureEditEmploy)
Public Function InsertImageToBLOB(ByVal QueryString As String, ByVal FieldName As String, ByVal PictureBox As DevExpress.XtraEditors.PictureEdit) As Integer
                Dim ms As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream       '// Create a new memory reader
                Dim bytBLOBData() As Byte                       '// Create a byte array to store picture
                Dim intBytes As Integer = 0                     '// Size of picture
                Dim iAffectedRows As Integer = 0                '// Number of affected rows
 
                Try
                    PictureBox.Image.Save(ms, ImageFormat.Jpeg) '// Get Image from picturebox
                    intBytes = CInt(ms.Length - 1)              '// Calulate byte size of image
                    ReDim bytBLOBData(intBytes)                 '// Set size if image byte array
                    ms.Position = 0                             '// Start position for reader
                    ms.Read(bytBLOBData, 0, CInt(ms.Length))    '// Read the image into the bytBLOBData variable

The code above is more like "pseudo" code, so no it dosen't work yet. But the code is almost there. It should only need some smal fixing. But that's what I need help with.
