add picture in datagridview

Kim 41 Reputation points


I have linked a winform with a data grid view to an mdf database.
via a button where I select the file I load a photo into a picturebox.

Private Sub btn_foto_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btn_foto.Click    
        Dim dialog As New OpenFileDialog()    
        If DialogResult.OK = dialog.ShowDialog Then    
            FotopadTextBox.Text = dialog.FileName    
        End If    

with next button I load the photos in the datagridview but all cells get the same photo instead of the corresponding photo as stated in (fotoPadTextbox)

Private Sub ToolStripButton1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ToolStripButton1.Click
If Me.FietsdragersBindingSource.Position > -1 Then
For Each NRow In Me.FietsdragersDataGridView.Rows
If NRow.Cells(6).Value IsNot DBNull.Value Then
filenaam = (NRow.Cells(6).Value())
NRow.Cells(0).value() = Image.FromFile(FotopadTextBox.Text)
Catch ex As Exception
NRow.Cells(0).value() = My.Resources.x
End Try
End If
End If
End Sub

Can someone help me with what I'm doing wrong.

    Hi @Kim ,

    filenaam = (NRow.Cells(6).Value())  
    NRow.Cells(0).value() = Image.FromFile(FotopadTextBox.Text)  

    In the loop of your code, the value of FotopadTextBox.Text is used for each row of images added, not NRow.Cells(6).Value() of the corresponding row, and the images are the same for all rows.
    So you need to modify the above code to get the correct value.

    NRow.Cells(0).value() = Image.FromFile(NRow.Cells(6).Value())  

    Best Regards.

    Try replacing

    NRow.Cells(0).value( ) = Image.FromFile(FotopadTextBox.Text)


    NRow.Cells(0).value = filenaam
