Store Image in Folder from asp.net and show in The Gridview

In this article I am representing how to store images in folder and show in the gridview.

Check the following form Where I am taking the detail of product with image;-

		
		how to upload image

		Figure 1
		

Create folder to store the image and give the folder name image as follows:-

		
		create folder

		Figure 2
		

Create following table to store this data.

		
create table prod(prod_id int primary key identity(1,1), prod_name varchar(100),
prod_price int, prod_imgpath varchar(100))

		

Now write the following code on button_Click

	protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {

        string pr_name = TextBox1.Text;
        int pr_price = Convert.ToInt32(TextBox2.Text);

        //take virtual path to store in the database
        string path = "~/Image/" + FileUpload1.FileName;

        //create insert query to store data
        string query = "insert into prod values('" + pr_name + "', " + pr_price + ",'" + path + "')";

        //store image in folder image. to get the absolute path we use Server.MapPath

        FileUpload1.SaveAs(Server.MapPath("Image")+"/"+FileUpload1.FileName);
        //Create connection. kindly change the conn_strig according to your system

        string conn_string = "Data Source=avi-PC;Initial Catalog=TechAltum;Integrated Security=True";
        SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(conn_string);
        con.Open();

        //create command object
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();

        //pass connection and query to your command object
        cmd.Connection = con;
        cmd.CommandText = query;
        int x = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
        con.Close();
        if (x > 0)
        {

            Response.Write("Item inserted Successfully");

        }
        else
        {
            Response.Write("Try Again");
       
     }
       

    }


		

Now execute the code. After Executing the code refresh your image folder and check the image as follows:-

		
		refresh image folder

Now if we want to show this data in Gridview then we have to use the template field to show the image. We have to add the image control using template field and bind the path column through its bind column.

Design code for Gridview

		<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="False"
                    onselectedindexchanged="GridView1_SelectedIndexChanged">
                    <Columns>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Prod Name">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server" Text='<%# bind("prod_name") %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Prod Price">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Label ID="Label2" runat="server" Text='<%# bind("prod_price") %>'></asp:Label>
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                        <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Image">
                            <ItemTemplate>
                                <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" ImageUrl='<%# bind("prod_imgpath") %>' Height="100" Width="200" />
                            </ItemTemplate>
                        </asp:TemplateField>
                    </Columns>
                </asp:GridView>

		

C Sharp code for Gridview

		string conn_string = "Data Source=avi-PC;Initial Catalog=TechAltum;Integrated Security=True";
        SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(conn_string);

        //create command object
        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();

        //pass connection and query to your command object
        cmd.Connection = con;
        cmd.CommandText = "Select * from Prod";

        //create adaptor to fill data from database
        SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd);

        //create datatable which holds the data
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();
        da.Fill(dt);

        //bind your data to gridview
        GridView1.DataSource = dt;
        GridView1.DataBind();


		

The output of this code as follows:-
