Display oracle binary file

Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I'm new on ASP.net. For now all I want is to create a page with a textbox, a button, and a place to display an image. The code below I use for any windows applications & works fine, but I'm very confuse on how to display it on a web page using Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg"
Private Sub RetriveImage()
        Dim sqlCommand As String = ""
        Dim oCon As OracleConnection = New OracleConnection("user id = fooo;password = foo;data source = FOO.WORLD;")
        Dim cmd = New OracleCommand(sqlCommand, oCon)
        Dim oraReader As OracleDataReader
        Dim id As String = ""
            sqlCommand = "SELECT ID_NMBR, SGNTRE FROM VO_SGNTRE WHERE ID_NMBR = 1111" '& Me.TextBox1.Text
            Dim oraImgCmd As OracleCommand = New OracleCommand(sqlCommand, oCon)
            oraImgCmd.InitialLONGFetchSize = 14000
            oraImgCmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text
            oraReader = oraImgCmd.ExecuteReader()
            While oraReader.Read
                '// If Photo exists in the Database, load it into the PictureBox
                If (oraReader.GetValue(1).ToString() <> "") Then
                    '// Fetch the BLOB data through OracleDataReader using OracleBlob type
                    Dim blob As OracleBinary = oraReader.GetOracleBinary(1)
                    '// Create a byte array of the size of the Blob obtained
                    Dim byteArr As Byte() = New Byte(blob.Length) {}
                    '// Read blob data into byte array
                    'Dim i As Integer = blob.Read(byteArr, 0, System.Convert.ToInt32(blob.Length))
                    Dim i As Long = oraReader.GetBytes(1, 0, byteArr, 0, blob.Length)
                    '// Get the primitive byte data into in-memory data stream
                    Dim memStream As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream(byteArr)
                    '// Attach the in-memory data stream to the PictureBox
                    'Me.picSOEimage.Image = Image.FromStream(memStream)
                    '// Fit the image to the PictureBox size
                    Me.picSOEimage.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage
                    'MessageBox.Show("1  SNTRE not found  " & oraReader.GetValue(2).ToString())
                End If
            End While
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(sqlCommand & vbCrLf & ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Sub
