DataList control in ASP.NET not showing images

Posted on 2011-02-17
Last Modified: 2013-12-17
I am working on a photo gallery but the DataList is not showing the images in the folder. It will show the placeholder but not the actual images.
<asp:DataList ID="dlImages" runat="server" RepeatColumns="3" RepeatDirection="Horizontal" Width="100%" CellPadding="2" CellSpacing="0">
            <img src='<%# Eval("FullName") %>' width="150" style="border:1px solid gray;" height="250" />
            <hr />

Open in new window

private void LoadDataList()
            string imageFolder = MapPath("PostedImages");
            DirectoryInfo objDI = new DirectoryInfo(imageFolder);

            dlImages.DataSource = objDI.GetFiles();

Open in new window

meaning they are showing the right path...

post rendered html and show where that page is on your web app, and show us where are the images

probably you should use something like this

<img src='images\<%# Eval("Name") %>' width="150" style="border:1px solid gray;" height="250" />

assuming you are getting files list under images folder relative to the running page.... and you should use Name not FullName

I think you need to change the src attribute value to this

src='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem,"FullName") %>'

hope it helps.
