Find Height and Width of image using C#

I know, there are some requirements in which we need to find out the image's height and width.
Either the image is on server or it's been uploaded using fileupload control in using C#.

Following is the example for finding the height and width of image which is being uploaded through FileUpload Control in
My favourite language is C#, so this code is also written in C#.
Those who love VB, please use a code convertor.

lets say fileUpload control as fiUpload

protected void findHieghtWidht_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    string uploadImageType = fiUpload.PostedFile.ContentType.ToString().ToLower();
    stirng uploadImageName = fiUpload.PostedFile.FileName;
    System.Drawing.Image uploadImage = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(fiUpload.PostedFile.InputStream);
    float imageWidth = uploadImage.PhysicalDimension.Width;
    float imageHeight = uploadImage.PhysicalDimension.Height;

 Same way you can load the image stored on server, and get the height and width.

Failed To Load Viewstate

Once I encountered the following error

Failed to load viewstate.

The control tree into which viewstate is being loaded must match the control tree that was used to save viewstate during the previous request.

For example, when adding controls dynamically, the controls added during a post-back must match the type and position of the controls added during the initial request

I searched a lot on google and finally i found one solution.

Here is the reason why the error happens:

If a control is added dynamically to a placeholder say (UserControl1.ascx) and the control's viewstate is enabled ,thenafter on the next postback a different control is added say (UserControl2.ascx) to the placeholder.

when try to load the viewstate of the control contained at the placeholder it's expecting the previous control  u added :(UserControl1.ascx) but it will encounter another control instead  (UserControl2.ascx) in the place of the first control SO IT WILL FAIL.

Viewstate of the control tree in the placeholder child controls is saved by index not by key so even if we give our ascx control as a key before adding it to the placeholder we will get the same error.


Just disable viewstate of the usercontrol.

Days gap between two dates in ORACLE

To find out days gap between two dates excluding business holidays in oracle use following query.

SELECT count(dt) FROM
(SELECT TO_DATE(StartDate) + level - 1 dt FROM dual CONNECT BY level <=(TO_DATE(EndDate)-TO_DATE(StartDate)))
where to_char (dt,'D')<>1

Below written query is the example of it.

This query returns days count between 30-nov-2010 and 12-dec-2010 excluding Sundays
(1 for sunday,2 for monday and so on......)

SELECT count(dt) FROM
(SELECT TO_DATE('30-nov-2010') + level - 1 dt FROM dual CONNECT BY level <=(TO_DATE('12-Dec-2010')-TO_DATE('30-nov-2010')))
where to_char (dt,'D')<>1 

To find out dates between two dates use following query

SELECT to_char(dt,'dd/MM/yyyy') as date FROM
(SELECT TO_DATE(StartDate) + level - 1 dt FROM dual CONNECT BY level <=(TO_DATE(EndDate)-TO_DATE(StartDate)))
where to_char (dt,'D')<>1

Happy coding.
