Hi.

On the uploader, beneath each image thumbnail, there is an option for the user to 'Edit Description'. I would like to be able to take these descriptions and add them to the 'Comments' property field of the actual image (using EXIF Metadata). I already have a method in C# for adding the comment to the image, so that is not an issue.

I would be very grateful if somebody would be kind enough to explain to me how I actually capture these descriptions, preferably as a string, so that I can pass it to my method. I have been trawling through the documentation and I cannot figure out how to do this!

So to recap, how do I capture the descriptions a user has given an image so that I can pass it, in some way, to a c# method.

Many thanks.

I have actually managed to find the documentation for this now at:

http://www.aurigma.com/S...rSideUploadCode.htm.aspx

and have now implemented the following code

Code:
HttpPostedFile mainImage = Request.Files["Thumbnail1_" + i];
mainImage.SaveAs(Server.MapPath(imageGalleryRootPath + tempFolderName + "/" + counter + "_P.jpg"));

HttpPostedFile description = Request.Files["Description_" + i];
string imageDescription = Convert.ToString(description);
imgHandler.addImageComment(imageGalleryRootPath + tempFolderName + @"\" + counter + "_P.jpg", imageDescription);

but now I have a new problem! Although the Thumbnail1_N is working fine, Description_N just returns a null every time, even though I have physically added a description to the image!

Will someone please help me with this!!

Many, many thanks in advance.

Hi,

To get Description value from POST request you should use the following code:

Code:
string imageDescription = Request.Form["Description_" + i];
