Save and Retrieve Image into database table in ASP.NET MVC

According to my previous article, Which is written in web form. If you are a web form user then try this article. In this article i will show you, How to save image file into database table using ASP.NET MVC, also retrieve image from table to ASP.NET MVC Application. You know that image file saved in the form binary array. So, First to create a table, in which you can take varbinary(max) type field. I will give you an example of simple table.

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Brand] (
    [BrandId]    INT             IDENTITY (1, 1) NOT NULL,
    [BrandImage] VARBINARY (MAX) NULL,

Now, Add a EDMX file to prepare a DataContext as well as model. Now, open a HomeController.cs file to write the code for save file. In this file first to pass model in the view. Add a file control in the view file.

@using (Html.BeginForm("AddImage", "Home", FormMethod.Post, new {enctype="multipart/form-data"}))
    <div class="form-horizontal">
        <hr />
        @Html.ValidationSummary(true, "", new { @class = "text-danger" })
        <div class="form-group">
            @Html.LabelFor(model => model.BrandImage, htmlAttributes: new { @class = "control-label col-md-2" })
            <div class="col-md-10">
                <input type="file" id="image1" name="image1"/>

        <div class="form-group">
            <div class="col-md-offset-2 col-md-10">
                <input type="submit" value="Submit" class="btn btn-default" />

Save file using controller file 

public ActionResult AddImage(Brand model, HttpPostedFileBase image1)
            var db = new Database1Entities3();
            if (image1!=null)
                model.BrandImage = new byte[image1.ContentLength];
                image1.InputStream.Read(model.BrandImage, 0, image1.ContentLength);
            return View(model);

Show Image using controller file 

 public ActionResult ShowImage()
            Database1Entities3 db = new Database1Entities3();
            var item = (from d in db.Brands
                        select d).ToList();

            return View(item);
ShowImage View section

@model IEnumerable<WebApplication1.Brand>

    ViewBag.Title = "ShowImage";

        @foreach (var item in Model)

            var base64 = Convert.ToBase64String(item.BrandImage);
            var imgSrc = String.Format("data:image/gif;base64,{0}", base64);
            <img src='@imgSrc' style="max-width:100px; max-height:100px;" />

difference between structure and union in C Language

In c language article we will see the difference between union and structure. Both are the user define datatype in c language. See the table which is mentioned below: ASP.NET Video Tutorial Series Structure Union1.The keywordstruct is used to define a structure 1. The keyword union is used to define a union. 2. When a variable is associated with a structure, the compiler allocates the memory for each member. The size of structure is greater than or equal to the sum ofsizes of its members. The smaller members may end with unused slack bytes. 2. When a variable is associated with a union, thecompiler allocates thememory by considering the size of the largest memory. So, size of union is equal to the size of largest member. 3. Each member within a structure is assigned unique storage area of location. 3. Memory allocated is shared by individual members of union. 4. The address of each member will be in ascending order This indicates that memory for each member will start at different offset v…

Difference between Linear search and Binary Search in c language

SQL Video Channel : Download all SQL Video

Binary Search Linear Search Works only on sorted items. such as  1,2,3,4,5,6  etc
Works on sorted as well as unsorted items. 12,4,5,3,2,1 etc Very efficient if the items are sorted Very efficient if the items are less and present in the beginning of the list. such as Suppose your list items are : 12,3,4,5,1 and you want to search 12 number then you get beginning in the list. Works well with arrays and not on linked lists. Works with arrays and linked lists.
Number of comparisons are less More number of comparisons are required if the items are present in the later part of the array or its elements are more.

Memory representation of Linked List Data Structures in C Language

Memory representation of Linked List

             In memory the linked list is stored in scattered cells (locations).The memory for each node is allocated dynamically means as and when required. So the Linked List can increase as per the user wish and the size is not fixed, it can vary.

               Suppose first node of linked list is allocated with an address 1008. Its graphical representation looks like the figure shown below:

      Suppose next node is allocated at an address 506, so the list becomes,

  Suppose next node is allocated with an address with an address 10,s the list become,

The other way to represent the linked list is as shown below:

 In the above representation the data stored in the linked list is “INDIA”, the information part of each node contains one character. The external pointer root points to first node’s address 1005. The link part of the node containing information I contains 1007, the address of next node. The last node …
