I need to get a  JPG from url  (Example:  www.test.com/test.jpg) and place it in a TJPeg Object (without first saving it to file). Is this possible?

Is so, can you provide me the code please?

Thanks

NOTE: Must handle JPEGs that do not actually exist.  (possibly returning a nil object - OR - a boolean)

thanks

The code below should work.

Here is an example of how to use it:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  JPEG : TJPEGImage;
  Data : TMemoryStream;
begin
  Data := TMemoryStream.Create;
  Try
    JPEG := TJPEGImage.Create;
    Try
      If Not(GetInetFile('http://www.test.com/phoenix/images/5_top3pic1.jpg',Data)) Then Exit;
      Data.Position := 0;
      JPEG.LoadFromStream(Data);
      Image1.Picture.Graphic := JPEG;
    Finally
      JPEG.Free;
    end;
  Finally
    Data.Free;
  end;
end;

Uses WinInet;
 

function GetInetFile(const FileURL: String; OutStream: TMemoryStream): Boolean;

const

  BufferSize = 1024;

var

  hSession, hURL: HInternet;

  Buffer: Array[1..BufferSize] Of Byte;

  BufferLen: DWORD;

  sAppName: String;

begin

  Result := false;

  sAppName := ExtractFileName(Application.ExeName);

  hSession := InternetOpen(PChar(sAppName),INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_PRECONFIG,nil,nil,0);

  Try

    hURL := InternetOpenURL(hSession,PChar(fileURL),nil,0,0,0);

    Try

      OutStream.Position := 0;

      Repeat

        InternetReadFile(hURL,@Buffer,SizeOf(Buffer),BufferLen);

        OutStream.Write(Buffer,BufferLen);

      Until BufferLen = 0;

      If OutStream.Size = 0 Then Exit;

      Result := True;

    Finally

      InternetCloseHandle(hURL);

    end

  Finally

    InternetCloseHandle(hSession);

  end

end;

Oops, this should fix it for non existing images.
function GetInetFile(const FileURL: String; OutStream: TMemoryStream): Boolean;

const

  BufferSize = 1024;

var

  hSession, hURL: HInternet;

  Buffer: Array[1..BufferSize] Of Byte;

  BufferLen: DWORD;

  FileSize: PDWORD;

  Reserved: DWORD;

  sAppName: String;

begin

  Result := false;

  sAppName := ExtractFileName(Application.ExeName);

  hSession := InternetOpen(PChar(sAppName),INTERNET_OPEN_TYPE_PRECONFIG,nil,nil,0);

  Try

    hURL := InternetOpenURL(hSession,PChar(fileURL),nil,0,INTERNET_FLAG_IGNORE_REDIRECT_TO_HTTP Or INTERNET_FLAG_NO_AUTO_REDIRECT,0);

    Try

      BufferLen := 4;

      OutStream.Position := 0;

      Repeat

        FillChar(Buffer,SizeOf(Buffer),0);

        InternetReadFile(hURL,@Buffer,SizeOf(Buffer),BufferLen);

        OutStream.Write(Buffer,BufferLen);

      Until BufferLen = 0;

      If OutStream.Size = 0 Then Exit;

      Result := True;

    Finally

      InternetCloseHandle(hURL);

    end

  Finally

    InternetCloseHandle(hSession);

  end

end;
