image data from javascript to perl to sql THEN SQL to perl to javascript


I have a webpage that lets the user upload an image. This is the posted to a perl script as a form var. The data is stored in SQL 2005 (as the new image object).

I now need to get it back out from SQL and display it in an HTML page being generated by perl.

I can read the data back in, but can't get it to display. (typically it justs says [Object] ) when I refere to the perl variable.

Has anyone ANY experience / ideas on how to do this? ie moving data from a perl variable that I've re-loaded from the DB and getting it into a javascript image variable and then displaying it.

Note, that due to the nature of the website, I cant just use URLs - I HAVE to be able to store the actaul image (hence the use of SQL).

going nuts trying to get this working, any ideas /help REALLY appriciated - ta.

For this you would need to use Perl to display the image, set the src of the image as a Perl script which fetches the image data from the database. If you need to display the image dynamically, set the style.display property to 'none' initially and then 'block' when required.
