Default insert images into database

Hello Mr.Thearon,

First, Thanks for the thorough explanation.

I encounter a problem with inserting image into database.
I define a DataColumn in the dataset with byte data type "BL Component" & image data type in SP "Data Access Component"
I convert the image to array of bytes and pass it to a dataset.
       'objDataColumn = New DataColumn("Photo", Type.GetType("System.Byte"))
The problem is "cannot convert from byte() to byte"

Hope you can help

Go to the Wrox web site and download the code for Visual Basic 2005 Instant Results. I wrote an entire application that does nothing but manages images in a SQL Server database. Perhaps that code can guide you in the right direction.

Let me know if there are any further questions or problems.
