Default Problems displaying images via a variable

Using the FileSystemObject I'd like for users to specify an image in a folder via a textfield and have that image display in a browser window for them to right click and save to their desktop, upon pressing the submit button. OnSubmit calls the follwing asp page:

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
'check for development server
checkfordevserver=Server.MapPath(checkfordevserver )

dim model
dim modelpic
dim getpic

if model<>"" Then

Response.Write("<img src=""../../../img/"""&modelpic&""" "">")

end if


This causes a new browser window to open with the following:

<img src="../../../img/"d_HL1435.gif" ">


If I replace the Response.Write values with the following:

Response.Write("<img src=""../../../img/<%=modelpic%> "">")

I get the same results. BUT what I want is that image displays in the browser window for the user to right click and save to his desktop.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

It should render the image to the screen. However, I notice that you have some extra " in your src attribute. You have:

<img src="../../../img/"d_HL1435.gif" ">

It should be:

<img src="../../../img/d_HL1435.gif">

The new response.Write line is:

Response.Write("<img src=""../../../img/" & modelpic & """>")

Try that, and let me know,
