Here is a simple way to combine values into one field using T-SQL. This method is particularly handy when you don’t know ahead of time how many values will be returned. This simple example would return a student’s name and list of professors (separated by commas). SELECT stu.FullName, (SELECT prof.FullName + ', ' FROM tblProfessors prof INNER JOIN tblStuProf stuprof ON prof.ProfID = stuprof.ProfID WHERE stuprof.StuID = 1234 FOR XML PATH('')) AS Professors from tblStudents stu where stu.StuID = 1234 ......
This post goes over how to display images stored in a database using the SlideShowExtender control. The examples use VB.Net (what I have to use at the office) and assumes that you are storing your images in a database, a way to retrieve the images from the database (e.g. stored procedure) and have AJAX setup in your ASP.Net project already. Also the example was based on retrieving images that are photos hence the names of some of the various functions, controls, etc.
