How do I use a stored location istead of a loop in C#

Hi,

I have the attached C# code written within my Silverlight 4.0 out of browser with elevated trust application that loops through files within the MyPictures filesystem directory and writes them to a collection for display.

How can I alter this code to display a single image file (not a collection) from a path (located within the MyPictures directory) written against a data item within my database? Currently I can pull item data (string, int bindings etc) onto my page but I don't know how to pull an image file (located in my local filesystem) from a path written against my data item. The attached code is taken from the below web page:

http://www.wintellect.com/CS/blogs/jprosise/archive/2009/12/16/silverlight-4-s-new-local-file-system-support.aspx

It displays a collection of image files from the local filesystem (MyPictures) but how can I alter this to simply show a single image file from my data source?

Thanks.
if (Application.Current.HasElevatedPermissions)
{
    string path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyPictures);
 
    foreach (string dir in Directory.EnumerateDirectories(path))
    {
        TreeViewItem item = new TreeViewItem();
        item.Header = dir.Substring(dir.LastIndexOf('\\') + 1);
        DirectoryTree.Items.Add(item);
        ProcessFolder(dir, item.Items);
    }

}

I have a path to the image in the db. Before running the silverlight app in question the user will download all the images required by the app into their MyPictures location.

Thanks.

You can use this code to directly reference the image..
public Image GetImage(string path)
{
      return Image.FromFile(path); 
}

//to use above method :

Image img = GetImage("C:\Users\DefaultUser\Desktop\myImage.jpg");
