Image from database and display


#1

I have an image saved in a database and am trying to display it in my
view. Here is my code:

View-
<%= image_tag( url_for :action => ‘image’, :id => 1, :pseudo_id =>
@pseudo.id) %>

Controller-
@image = Image.find(:first, :conditions => [‘enpseudo_id = ?’,
@pseudo.id])
send_data @img.img, :content_type => ‘image/gif’

What I get is a broken image, but the dimensions look like the correct
dimensions which makes me thing that it is actually reading the image
from the database but not displaying it correctly. Thanks in advance,

I got it, here is what I did:

View:

<%= image_tag("/admin/code_image/#{@image.id}", :alt => “Image”) %>

Controller - code_image

def code_image
@image_data = Image.find_by_id(params[:id])
@image = @image_data.img
send_data (@image, :disposition => ‘inline’)
end

Hope this is of some help to somebody.

Yes… the image is fetched by the browser as a completely separate
request, so you need to be able to handle that request.
