    I have changed my handler to .aspx page and here is the code but still have the same problem with the image displaying

    only red x display

    Do you see any problem with this code?




        Protected Sub form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles form1.Load

            Dim PictureID As Char = Convert.ToChar(Request.QueryString("PictureID"))

            Dim myConnection As New SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("HelloUSAConnection").ConnectionString)

            Dim cmdSurveyLogo As New SqlCommand("spGetSurveyOfficeLogo", myConnection)

            cmdSurveyLogo.CommandType = Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure

            cmdSurveyLogo.Parameters.Add(New SqlParameter("@OfficeID", Data.SqlDbType.VarChar, 1))
            cmdSurveyLogo.Parameters("@OfficeID").Value = PictureID

            Dim myReader As SqlDataReader = cmdSurveyLogo.ExecuteReader

            If myReader.Read Then

                Response.ContentType = "Image/jpeg"
                Response.BinaryWrite(DirectCast(myReader("OfficeLogo"), Byte()))

            End If
