I have done a program in C# such that , added a crystal report viewer, then added a button named as browse… and designed a report by getting source from the xml schema file(.xsd file) with two fields namely name,image..... name is of string datatype and image is of
datatype base64Binary.. so now when I run the program.. using browse button I can be able to load a .jpg image at runtime.. so that image will be displayed in the report…. This is wht my program does…

Now what I have to do is that ,I should be able to load a .gif image at runtime and display in crystal report.At present when I select a .gif image..its not shown in crystal report…so please help me to do this.. I will enclose my coding part along with this..please have a look at it and help me to do this program….

and the coding is as follows:

// Prcocedure: AddImageRow
// reads an image file and adds this image to a dataset table
void AddImageRow(DataTable tbl, string name, string filename)
FileStream fs = new FileStream(filename, FileMode.Open); // create a file stream
BinaryReader br = new BinaryReader(fs); // create binary reader
DataRow row;

// create a new datarow
row = tbl.NewRow();

// set country field and image field
row[0] = name;
row[1] = br.ReadBytes((int)br.BaseStream.Length);

// add this row to the table

// clean up
br = null;
fs = null;

//Browse button
private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
OpenFileDialog openFileDialog1 = new OpenFileDialog();
// openFileDialog1.Filter = "Image Files(*.jpg) | *.jpg ";
openFileDialog1.Filter = "Image Files(*.jpg) |*.jpg | All Files(*.*) | *.*";
//the variable myPic contains the string of the full File Name,it includes the full path.
string mypic = openFileDialog1.FileName;

DataSet data = new DataSet();

// add a table 'Images' to the dataset

// add two fields
data.Tables[0].Columns.Add("Country", System.Type.GetType("System.String"));
data.Tables[0].Columns.Add("img", System.Type.GetType("System.Byte[]"));


// create a report
showimage cr = new showimage();
// pass a reportdocument to the viewer
crystalReportViewer1.ReportSource = cr;
