I am trying to create a page that queries a database and draws an image to the page with a chart of the data. The problem is that I cant figure out how to write both text to the page AND an image(the chart).

I could write my text and use <img src="drawChart.aspx?value1=test1&value2=test2" /> to have an image written dynamically BUT I dont want to have to pass all of those values in the URL, I want to be able to simply read my datareader and draw the image on the page.

Any ideas or examples I can look at?

you cannot "draw on the page", but you can write into a temporary image file, and refer as a regular <img>

Also, there are third party controls that might help with this. I did something similar using Teleriks controls a while back. They are commercial though.

Good Luck!

I know how to draw an image to page but once I set content  type to image/jpeg it just shows the image. Otherwise I get my text with a bunch of bytes that represents the image. If I make the part that creates an image into a control, will this solve the problem or will I still have to pass parameters to it in the URL?

Are there any code sampels out there that demonstrate this? I've never created a control before.
