How to upload an image file from my computer to my server using Visual Basic 6?

Hi guys,

I'm developing an app in vb6 that will contain Contacts but also the pictures of the persons, so i' thinking to create a folder on the network to contains all the pics, so my mySQL database won't contains them.

I already show the picture of the person on the form and i have a text box containing the path of the file, What I need now is to save, upload or copy the picture on the network folder.

This is the code to show the pic:

Private Sub cmdFoto_Click()
    CommonDialog1.ShowOpen
    txtBuscaFoto.Text = CommonDialog1.FileName
    Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(txtBuscaFoto.Text)
End Sub


Please any help!!!

Thank you guys.

Try either of these methods:
FileSystemObject.CopyFile "c:\PeopleImages\first_last.jpg", "\\server\sharename\"

Open in new window


Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 oFSO.GetFile("c:\PeopleImages\first_last.jpg").Copy "\\server\sharename\", True

Open in new window

have you explored saving the image as a blob in MySQL ? would make moving your app at a later date much easier and keep all the data together.
complete with Vb.net example that could be converted to VB6....

Tip: To be able to insert images that are bigger than 1MB you have to increase the max_allowed_packed option in the server configuration file. You can change that in the Startup Variables section in the MySQL Administrator on the Networking page.
