Hi experts,

I'm trying to rezise images when my client uploads them

I found a piece of code that works in asp:

  Sir = Server.CreateObject("SfImageResize.ImageResize")
        Sir.LoadFromFile(dirpath & "\" & filename)

        If (filewidth / fileheight) > (max_width / max_height) Then
            Sir.Width = max_width
        Else
            Sir.Height = max_height
        End If

        Sir.DoResize()
        Sir.SaveToFile(dirpath & "\" & final_filename)

        Sir = Nothing

but I get:

Could not create an object of type 'SfImageResize.ImageResize'.

Can anybody help?

thanx

p.s. I'm working in vwd 2008  + vb

That's because SfImageResize is a third party library you probably don't have? http://www.silberfish.com/sfir/ (free for personal use)

does it have to be installed also on the hosting server?

Also see this it's c# but I'm sure it can be translated.

Hi,

I"m sure the component should be on the server as it worked before (for the previous developer)
but now I get :

"The component 'SfImageResize.ImageResize' cannot be created. Apartment threaded components can only be created on pages with an page directive."

Umm you need to do what it tells you:
<%@Page ASPCompat="true" %> 

Open in new window

needs to be added at the top of your aspx file
see this link for more info : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms973813.aspx
