Please find the attached code.   I have a Gridview that displays and image in the Image column.   The upload function works correctly as the images are going to the "Image" folder; however, the image does not display in the Gridview.   Only a box with a black X in it.  I need assistance in resolving this issue?

Have you checked your GridUpload  table? Is the correct path is in fpath column? I think you need to make the path in this column a relative path starting with "/", like this: "/images/image1.jpg", so this line should be:
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@fpath", "/images/" + FileName);

Try first to modify the data in the database, and then modify the code. Also, use the lower case (some web servers are case sensitive when it comes to path variables)
