image uploading

P: n/a
Hi there

I want to let users upload a image to their directory and then update my
database so whenever someone searches the database an image is displayed..
I've seen some scripts that use comonents . I am famailiar with asp
somewhat. Does anyone know the best way to do this ? What are the advantages
of using components ? my concern is that i may run ito problems when I
update my database.
Thanks

Hi Raj,

I'd have a look at PureASP upload which is Free to use for files upto 2Mb.

The program isn't a component, but is written is asp so can be used in any
asp application.

Simply use the PureASP code to upload the file onto your server, update your
database with the filename and path and then when the user wants to see that
image you can use to field in your database to output a <img> tag pointing
to the uploaded image file on your server.

Regards,

Larry Neylon.

I should mention that I tried several of these and prefer Fath because it
allows me direct access to the binary stream, which made it a good fit when
I needed to insert images into a SQL Server database using JScript and a
parametrized stored procedure. The Fath documentation is very thin, however.
