First of all this is wrong place to ask this question. Such question could be asked in GIT or Lounge.
Secondly, I appreciate the intention that you have behind posting this question i.e. learning but perhaps(like others said) you should be able to come up with some ideas on your own.
thirdly, my suggestion would be to start small application like contact book/address book or small forums. but keep in mind that your sole focus should be on learning various concepts related to C# and ASP.NET than just getting your project done.

System.IO.MemoryStream which has a Write() method. That is how you put it into a Memory Stream.
then convert the stored data to a jpeg image
Not sure what that means but since the camera takes jpeg images then the incoming bytes are already a jpeg.
HOWEVER, if what you are really asking is how can you write an application that interfaces with a camera then the steps are:
1. Learn how USB devices work
2. Learn how to interface to USB devices in C#.
3. Learn how the interface to the specific camera works (with 1/2)
4. Write C# code to access the camera using 1/2/3.
5. Do something with the images. Presumably store them as files. Then learn more about C# System.io classes.
Naturally the above presumes you know some C# in the first place. If not then you must also learn the basics of C#.
we were able till now to send the reset command and get back the return msg .
now we want the camera to take a pictures which has a dimensions (160*120);my task is to get the bytes that represent the picture and how to save it in memory stream to be processed later on . after that how this picture can be displayed as a jpeg image or any other extenssion.
I am trying to convert the string to datetime including the milliseconds... unfortunately when I used the Convert.ToDateTime method, it does not return the milliseconds... I have tried the parse and parseExact method in the Datetime and DateTimeOffset classes as well... none of them returning the milliseconds... I read the previous discussion regarding this issue and none of the solutions return the milliseconds...This is what I am trying to do:
Thank you so much for taking your time to respond to my post... I really appreciate it... but the solution both of you mentioned does not work for my situation... may be I did not state my question clearly... I apologize for that...
Pete, in your solution, you are converting the date to string again... that's not what i want...
And BMS121, I used the 'TimeOfDay' property as you suggested , but I could not assign that to datetime variable... I get compiler error :'Cannot implicitly convert System.TimeSpan to System.Datetime...
This is what I want to accomplish:
I am getting the datetime as a string from client ... so I have to convert that string to datetime including millisecond and then I have to store/save that datetime in the database (the datebase column is datetime type)...
Here is the code snippet:
string strDate = "2012-11-09 07:20:07.410"
Datetime actualDate = Convert.ToDateTime(strDate); -(L2)
L2 : does not return millisecond...
As per BMS121 suggestion, I tried the following :
(my entity object is called EDEntitiy)
Edentity.Timestamp = actualDate.TimeOfDay;
But above statement causes compiler error:
'Cannot implicitly convert System.TimeSpan to System.Datetime...
You are misunderstanding Pete's solution. Convert.ToDateTime is already giving you the right answer, but the default ToString on a DateTime omits the milliseconds, so it looks like it isn't when you look at the string representation of the DateTime you create. If you format it with milliseconds, you'll see that you got what you expected.
Thanks. Really appreciate it. My issue is this.
string strDate = "2012-11-09 07:20:07.410"
Datetime actualDate = Convert.ToDateTime(strDate);
Now when I save this date (actualDate) in the database(I am using the Entity Frame work to connect to the database), this is what i see in the database : 2012-11-09 07:20:07.000
As you can see, the millisecond is zero in the database... so my question is how do I save date (after converting from string to datetime) with milliseconds... my datebase date column is SQL datetime type...
