Webpage to display three images

Posted on 2011-09-26

I want to place three images on a web page next to each other, the images that will be returned need to be selectable from database entries which should link to the location of the image.

We have pictures which are taken which follow the following database entries

countryCode         cityCode       storeCode         StoreType        gridCodeX           filePath
44                          01                001                     S                     AA11                    c:\pics\44\01\001\S\AA11.jpg
44                           01                001                    S                     XY99                    c:\pics\44\01\001\S\XY99

and so on..........

Is it possible to select the country, city, store etc then the picture relating to that entry appears. We have two other images which I need to be presented next to the above. The location information for the other two are basically the same but I need to display the last two dated files in the directory that has been selected, I'm really not sure if this is possible but I thought I'd put the question in here anyway.

I can provide any files tht might be needed to guide me in this, our pages are .asp, we use and I use .net 4 and Visual Studio to create my pages and also C#.

Any help would be much appreciated/

Best Regards,


We use a site template which we use to keep the look and feel of our system the same

That sounds like a job for a Repeater, with a horizontal repeat direction, and an image control in the template...

When I did for my organization, I used formview to display data.

I would store the image name called picts on the db and store the actual images on a folder called MemberPhotos.

Here is a sample. You can modify to suit your needs.

      <asp:FormView ID="FormView1" Runat="server" DataSourceID="APOMembers" HeaderText="&nbsp;" AllowPaging="True" Width="562px">
              <td valign="top">
                <asp:Label ID="Label11" Font-Size="1.2em" Font-Bold="true" Text='<%# Eval("tTitle") %>' runat="server" />
                <asp:Label ID="Name" Font-Size="1.2em" Font-Bold="true" Text='<%# Eval("Name") %>' runat="server" />
                <hr width="120"/>
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">Cell Phone:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Cell_Phone" Text='<%# Eval("cell_phone") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">Home Phone:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label1" Text='<%# Eval("phone") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">Email:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label2" Text='<%# Eval("Email_Add") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">Registered On:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label3" Text='<%# Eval("DateOfRegistration","{0:MM/dd/yyyy}") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">Address:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label4" Text='<%# Eval("Address") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">City:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label5" Text='<%# Eval("City") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">State:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label6" Text='<%# Eval("State") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">Zip:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label8" Text='<%# Eval("Zip") %>' runat="server" />
                <br/><font style="Font-Size:1.2em; Font-Weight:Bold">Comments:</font>
                <asp:Label ID="Label10" Text='<%# Eval("Comments") %>' runat="server" />
               <td valign="middle">
                <asp:Image ID="ImageDetailItem" width="250" ImageUrl='<%# IIF(CONVERT.ToString(Eval("picts"))="", "~/memberPhotos/NoPic.jpg", Eval("picts","~/memberPhotos/{0}.jpg")) %>' runat="server" />                                        

Open in new window

      A sqldatasource selectcommand:
                <asp:SqlDataSource ID="APOMembers" runat="server" ConnectionString="<%$ ConnectionStrings:APOConnectionString %>"
                 ProviderName="<%$ ConnectionStrings:APOConnectionString.ProviderName %>"
                    SelectCommand="SELECT ID, ([firstName]&' '& [LastName]) as Name, [Cell_Phone], [Phone], [Email_Add], [tTitle], [DateOfRegistration], [Address], [City], [State], [Zip], [Comments], [picts] FROM mytable WHERE [ID] = @ID">
                    <asp:QueryStringParameter Name="ID" QueryStringField="ID" Type="Decimal" />

Open in new window

Hopefully, this leads in the right direction.
