Default chapter 13 building an index page

Hi all,

I've tried to do this part of the chapter for my own website using access. But when I run the application instead of showing the image on the imagebutton it just says "Submit Query".

I have created a folder via the solution explorer and added existing image files through it.

When the image location string is read from the database, I append the folder name exactly as in the example.

I have also tried specifying the folder name in the database and just retrieving the string. But this doesn't work either.

Finally I moved the images to the root of the solution and it actually worked.

So it looks like there is a problem getting access to the folder that contains the images. My question is why is this happening and what can i do about it? I don't really want to have all my images floating around the root of the site.

If anyone can give me any help on this I would be grateful.

Many thanks

ok I've found out what the problem was you need to put a ~ in to tell it to look at the local structure.

Eval("PictureURL","~/images/thumb_{0}")

I'm not sure if this is a typo in the book or not, but i'm guessing it will be

Hi,
   In the actual book example you do not need the ~, although you might well do for your own site.

If you point it at the ProductImages directory as follows:

Eval("PictureURL","ProductImages/thumb_{0}")

then it works fine for me using the Begin/Chapter13 code. It depends on the structure and setup of your own particular site.

This seems to be a problem for me if I use FIREFOX. However on using IE it works fine.

So I am using ie for this now.

aha Tequin I see, I use firefox too. I didn't even try to view the page in IE.
However adding the little ~ does work should you decide to go back to Firefox.
Cheers
