Thumbnail image to popup Fullsize image (image paths from a database)

I am trying to modify an example of code from  - - >  Image Scripts - - > Image Gallery 7 (Reusing popup for large image)   where instead of using the hardcoded image in the example javascript, I can reference the path to that image which is loaded in my Access DB.


I was able to modify the HTML img to find the src of the thumbnail path.

So too is the path to the full image located in my Access DB.


Is there a way I can load the path to the full image in the javascript or does anyone

Have an idea of how I can do this?



<div id="imgholder" style="position:absolute;right:0px;top:0px;display:none;

 background-color: #000000;"

title="Click to close">

<img name="pic" id="pic" src="images/blank.gif" alt="" style="position:relative" />


    <asp:FormView ID="FormView4" runat="server" DataSourceID="AccessDataSource1">


<img id="ThumbnailPath"  src='<%# Bind("ThumbnailPath") %>'

    runat="server"  alt=""  onclick="newWin(0)" />



<script type="text/javascript">


// Jeff



myImages=new Array() // large images

myImages[0]="images/Pages/FullSize1.gif"      <- instead load the path to that image from my DB 



preloadImages=new Array()

for(var i=0;i<myImages.length;i++){

preloadImages[i]=new Image()

I would do the same thing that you are doing to figure out what the thumbnail image is:

   <img id="ThumbnailPath"  src='<%# Bind("ThumbnailPath") %>' 
    runat="server"  alt=""  onclick="showFullImage('<%# Eval("FullImagePath")%>')" />

and use it with a similar javascript function:

    function showFullImage(path)
        features = 'width=400,height=200,toolbar=yes, location=yes,directories=yes,status=yes,menubar=yes,scrollbars=yes,copyhistory=yes, resizable=yes';,'FullImage',features);

Thanks for your reply Robert.

When I tried your code I get the following runtime error:

A call to Bind must be assigned to a property of a control inside a template.      


<img id="ThumbnailPath"  src='<%# Bind("ThumbnailPath") %>' 
    runat="server"  alt=""  onclick="showFullImage('<%# Eval("FullImagePath")%>')" />

Anyone have any ideas on this one?

Just use <%# Eval("") %>  instead of <%# Bind("") %>

Hi Pronov,

Tried it but am getting the following parser error:  (Also tried this format and got same results.  

src='<%= Eval("PubThumbnailPath") %>'

Description: An error occurred during the parsing of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific parse error details and modify your source file appropriately.

Parser Error Message: The server tag is not well formed.

Is there anyway I can Click on an Image on a webpage and get the full size Image to appear in a popup given that I have both the paths to the thumbnail and fullsize images in my DB?


1/24/2007 6:15:02 PM

Here is an interesting tidbit.

If I remove the onclick parm from the <img control,  the Bind error goes away.  And when I load the page, it does find the path to the thumbnail and renders the page and image correctly.

But obviously,  I want to be able to now click on the image and popup a full size image.  

Does any of this make sense?

Hi Danny,
I think this would sure work for you

       <a href="JavaScript: showFullImage('<%# Eval("FullImagePath")%>')" style="text-decoration=none;" >
                 <img id="ThumbnailPath"  src='<%# Eval("ThumbnailPath") %>'
runat="server"  alt="" border="0"/>

I believe the server tag is not well formed is referring to the onclick attribute rather than the src attribute.  The unformed tag is actually referring to this, even though it is pointing to the line with the src tag because it just points to the start of the tag with the problem.  I think you are looking for (I always get mixed up with the quotes because I actually don't use ASP.NET nearly as much as I post here):

onclick='showFullImage("<%# Eval("FullImagePath") %>")'

Problems with a thumbnail image to popup Full-size image (image paths from a database)
I am hoping to get more feedback from entering this in perhaps a more appropriate forum.   Please refer to post   I think I’ve explained what I would like to do but can’t figure out how to successfully code it.   I found it interesting that if I removed the Onclick event, my Bind error goes away.   And changing the Bind to an Eval traded the Bind error for a parser error.   How can I pass the path of the Full size image from my DB to the javascript so that ASP and Java both are OK with the coding?  ...

Save Image Path into Database, Retrieve Image Path by Particular Image ID and Display Image through Gridview
Hi All, Currently, I have a file upload control in my aspx page to allow user to upload images. When the user clicks the SAVE button, the image will be saved in a particular folder named 'PMap' that located within the website. What I am trying to do here is to direct all uploaded images into a common image folder (in this case 'PMap') and then, retrieve the images and displayed it through a Gridview according to its respective image id. I have managed to store all uploaded images into a common image folder, PMap. However, I hope advice can be given on my following pro...

Image on Image
I am trying to display a page that has image of a map on it. The user can then place other images of red thumbtacks on the image at different locations. Then when these thumb tacks are clicked on, they open a folder of pics related to the area. I saw a method in the imageButton class that returns the (x,y) of the location where the user clicked. I thought I could use this information to place another, smaller image button, on that area. My problem is that i can't seem to get the bottom imageButton to be transparent so I can see the smaller one. Am i on the right track with this. Any advi...

Imaging, but not imaging
We multicasted to 43 machines. Updated the image on the master. Multicasted the updated image to 36 machines. (the other 7 wouldn't join the session for some unknown reason).

It's as though the machine didn't image even though I saw it take part in the session and the temp bar going across the screen. What the heck's going on here?

Hi, I have a project where clients viewing my website can buy t-shirts. They can choose from a number of t-shirt colors and shapes which are their plain colour. They can also choose a number of prints to be placed on the t-shirt. These will be graphics stored in a database. My problem is on how I can displaty the t-shirt with the graphics or logo they chose on te t-shirt. It would be something like drawing text on an image but instead drawing an existing image on the base image. Any Ideas? (I am using visual studio 2005 and vb.NET)   RegardsMerovingian you 1.

Storing images in SQL database vs storing images in seperate folder and using URL image path

If it can be stored in an sql database as a image or a binary format what are the advantages/disadvantages or is it better to store the url in the database and then bind the image holder to the url link in the database.
