    Image Problem


    Ok here is my problem:

    I am trying to get an image from a processor. I send them information that
    they need to identify the image in a url. In turn they return a url to me
    to the image. This part works fine. I can get the image but it is way too
    big. I am trying to get the image and size it so it is printable. My problem
    is that what is returned is an image tag with the URL to the image. I am
    trying to figure out how to get the returned URL and save it to a variable
    so I can parse it out to just the URL and use it in an image tag on my page
    and display it.

    Oh this is an asp page. I have looked in a few javascript books and asp
    books but I can't find anything.

    Can anyone help me out here??

    Re: Image Problem


    This is my suggestion to you:

    Create an ASP page with the following:
    <%
    Dim imageURL, imageH, imageW
    imageURL = Request.Querystring("url")
    imageH = Request.Querystring("h")
    imageW = Request.Querystring("w")
    %>
    <html>
    <body>
    <head>
    <title>Picture Viewer</title>
    </head>
    <table width="90%" border="0">
    <tr>
    <td><img src="<%= imageURL%>" border="0" height="<%= imageH%>" width="<%=
    imageW%>"></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>

    The above page we will name PictureView.asp
    When you goto this page you must have the URL Just like Below:
    http://www.yourdomain.com/PictureVie...erwidthyouwant
    This must be run on a website that supports ASP or it will not work.
    Please e-mail me with questions, dwilliamssprint@earthlin.net

    Thanks for the info Derek!

    I implemented that code and it worked great! Now the bad part comes into
    play. That URL that I was using was just for testing purposes. The actual
    URL that I will need to use is set up so only our web server can access it.
    Now I need to figure out a way for the server to get the image and then
    somehow have the client view the image.

    I have been working on ways to accomplish this all day and I am becoming
    frustrated.

    I wish this image processor would just come up with some key that would be
    created on our side and then sent with the request so they could verify and
    send me back the image. However, they are not this advanced so they have
    it set up to where they will only accept requests from our specific IP address.

    The first thing that popped into my head was, have the server download the
    image and save it to a session variable or something and then access that
    from another page and display it for the user. But, I can't figure out how
    to do so.

    HELP!!
    Thanks in advance!!!
