Default populating a drop down with a file list

my db stores the location of the image, not the image. Of course, the image has been previously loaded, I want to store the full URL of the image into the database. For this I use a drop down list so the user can select it.

So far I've been using this:

    '---------------------Image Listing from directory peopertypics in images

    Dim strDir As String

    strDir = Server.MapPath("~/images/propertypics")

    Dim dirInfo as New System.IO.DirectoryInfo(strDir)

    Dim arrFiles as System.IO.FileInfo() = dirInfo.GetFiles()

    dtgDirInfo.DataSource = arrFiles


    '---------------------end image listing

and in the drop down all I get for now is the actual physical path something like c:\xxx\xxx\xxx.jpg

My list box command is the following:

<asp:listbox id="dtgDirInfo" runat="server" Rows="1" DataTextField="fullname" DataValueField="fullname" />

Any ideas of how I can get the URL instead of the physical path?

Thank you so much.

Cross post. Please see here: http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=12468 for any replies.

cjcd, can you please not double (or triple) post your messages? Most people here track multiple forums, so your message will be read anyway. It's really a pain to see the same message over and over again, especially if you reply and find out it has already been answered somewhere else....
