Image from sql database to gridview

Hi, experts.

I have a ms server 2008, and code my site in aspx C#.
I want to retrieve an image from my database, and i know it is corectly placed inside my db, because i can view the images in a test query.
I retrieve all my data to my GridView through a SQLDataSource.

I got 5 columns, but it is only the picture that won't show.

i tried a lot of solution in the gridview:

Boundfields, Templatefields and Imagefield.
and i tried to make my column a varbinary(max) and image.

I have even tried to make a picture in the string with ASCII:

SELECT '<asp:image runat="server" ImageURL="aspnet_Users.ComLogo" />' 'ComLogo' ,

I think the problem lies in the way i point to the data in my sql selection string, because when i open my site and view the source code, the html shows <img src="" />.

My last try was


            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Wild logo">
                <EditItemTemplate>
                </EditItemTemplate>
                <ItemTemplate>
                <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl='<% #bind("ComLogo") %>' />
                </ItemTemplate>
             </asp:TemplateField>

Any ideas?

It's my code. It run after binding data to grid.
 
private void DrawImage()
        {

            for (int i = 0; i < dgd_danhmuc.Items.Count; i++)
            {
                System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image img = (System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image)dgd_danhmuc.Items[i].Cells[0].Controls[0].FindControl("Image1");
                //Template Column with System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image 
                if (dgd_danhmuc.Items[i].Cells[7].Text == "1") //dgd_danhmuc.Items[i].Cells[7].Text=="1"  hidden field
                {
                    ckb.ImageUrl = "../Image/lock.gif";
                }
                else
                {
                    ckb.ImageUrl = "../Image/unlock.gif";

Sorry for my comment. dgd_danhmuc is the id of a datagrid.
 'ckb' -> You replace 'ckb' with ' img'.

dgd_danhmuc.Items[i].Cells[7].Text=="1" -> is a status column in database, it's be hidden column 
in the datagrid. I add a template column like this into the datagrid.

Open in new window

<asp:TemplateColumn HeaderText="T.T">
                            <HeaderStyle Font-Bold="True" ForeColor="#1E63A8" Font-Names="Arial" Wrap="False"
                                Width="3%"></HeaderStyle>
                            <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Center"></ItemStyle>
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" Height="16px" Width="16px"></asp:Image>
                            </ItemTemplate>
</asp:TemplateColumn>

Open in new window


After binding data to datagrid, you call the function.
