Hi Everyone

I am working on a project where I have a list of images displayed through datagridview.
I want to load an image into picturebox when the particular image is clicked in datagridview.

My code
Private Sub DataGridView1_CellMouseClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellMouseEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellMouseClick

       cmd = New SqlCommand("select pic from detail4 where id='" & DataGridView1.CurrentRow.Cells(0).Value() & "'", sql)
       Dim imageData As Byte() = DirectCast(cmd.ExecuteScalar(), Byte())
       If Not imageData Is Nothing Then
           Using ms As New MemoryStream(imageData, 0, imageData.Length)
               ms.Write(imageData, 0, imageData.Length)
               PictureBox1.BackgroundImage = Image.FromStream(ms, True)
           End Using
       End If

   End Sub

I get Out of memory exception..
What may be the problem.

Hello !

Working like charm !

Private Sub DataGridView1_CellContentClick(sender As Object, e As DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellContentClick
        Dim pCell As New DataGridViewImageCell

        pCell = Me.DataGridView1.Item("ThumbNailPhotoDataGridViewImageColumn", e.RowIndex)
        Me.PictureBox1.Image = byteArrayToImage(pCell.Value)
    End Sub
    Private Function byteArrayToImage(ByVal byt As Byte()) As Image

        Dim ms As New System.IO.MemoryStream()
        Dim drwimg As Image = Nothing

            ms.Write(byt, 0, byt.Length)
            drwimg = New Bitmap(ms)
        End Try

        Return drwimg

    End Function
