hi, i want to add image to datatble but getting an error.below is code i have done.

Type of value has a mismatch with column typeCouldn't store <system.byte[]> in logoname Column. Expected type is Byte[].

this error i got at this line dt.Rows.Add(imageDataSet.Tables[0].Rows[rowNumber][0].ToString());

DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt.Columns.Add("logoname", System.Type.GetType("System.Byte[]"));
 for (int rowNumber = 0; rowNumber < imageDataSet.Tables[0].Rows.Count; rowNumber++)

private void DisplayImages(DataRow row, string ImagePath)
            FileStream imageStream = new FileStream(ImagePath, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read);
            BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(imageStream);
            row[0] = br.ReadBytes(Convert.ToInt32(br.BaseStream.Length));

You need to create a function which will convert an image to byte array. Try this:
private byte[] GetByteArray(String strFileName)
    System.IO.FileStream fs = new System.IO.FileStream(strFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open);
    // initialise the binary reader from file streamobject
    System.IO.BinaryReader br = new System.IO.BinaryReader(fs);
    // define the byte array of filelength

    byte[] imgbyte = new byte[fs.Length + 1];
    // read the bytes from the binary reader

    imgbyte = br.ReadBytes(Convert.ToInt32((fs.Length)));
    // add the image in bytearray
    // close the binary reader

    // close the file stream
    return imgbyte;
Now call the above function and add your image to datatable. Try this:
DataTable dt = new DataTable();
dt.Columns.Add("Image", typeof(byte[]));
dt.Rows[0]["Image"] = GetByteArray(strFilePath);
//this will add a row with the image. Accordingly, you need to loop and add the rows as required.

Hope it helps!

Still giving same error Type of value has a mismatch with column typeCouldn't store in logoname Column. Expected type is Byte[].

Try my updated answer.. Use typeof(byte[]) directly.
