Displaying images using dynamic data RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1593135248 posted


    I currently have an ~/Images folder which stores both a thumbnail and full size image for each product. There is a Product table in SQL with a PictureURL column pointing to the path of the thumbnail image.  I can get the image to displays fine using the following in a custom page templatefield. <asp:Image runat="server" ImageUrl='<%# Eval("PictureURL") %>' />  This is good but I lose alot of functionality from the generated page.

    Is there a simple way to display these using the standard dynamic data templates? Any help would be appreciated.

    When you say "the standard dynamic data templates" are you referring to the use of dynamic controls?

    If so, the example at http://forums.asp.net/t/1357172.aspx may be of help to you.

    You can put a placeholder on your aspx page and then cycle through your database and for each hit you dynamically create a placeholder and can put several things on it:

    possibly an image icon, textboxes for user input and a button that when pushed will call a function and use the data from the corresponding textboxes from that particular dynamically generated placeholder.

    Am I going in the right direction for what you want to do?

    Hi Pcaligari,  are you running plain DD from SP1 or have made use of Dynamic Data Futures from codeplex? if not I suggest you have a look at the Futures sample here: Source Code DynamicDataFutures0716.zip

    Also I have some articles on my blog c# Bits here:

    1. Part 1 - FileImage_Edit FieldTemplate
    2. Part 2 - FileImage_Edit FieldTemplate

    Hope this helps [:D]
