    Hi Roberto,
    We are sorry for the inconvenience, we are unable to find a way to show the Image from Blob. Hence, we have forwarded this to the concerned team for further investigation with the internal tracking id C1WEB-27503.

    Hi Roberto,
    Please try to use the following code:
    Server-side: Create a method that converts to base 64 string from a byte array stored in DB

    // Convert by to string base 64
    protected string GetImageFromBlob(byte[] data)
    string base64String = Convert.ToBase64String(data);
    return String.Format("data:image/jpg;base64,{0}", base64String);

    Client-side: Call method in server-side to get the image source because image source must be a string

    <wijmo:C1TemplateField HeaderText="Image"> 
    <ItemStyle HorizontalAlign="Center" />
    <img src='<%# GetImageFromBlob((byte[])Eval("Image")) %>' alt=<%# Eval("Image") %> />

    Hope it helps!

    Hi Manish
    Thank for your reply
    but i already solved
    in this way

    on grid row i added

    in the columns

    <wijmo:C1BoundField DataField="Immagine" HeaderText="Immagine"
    Visible="false"> </wijmo:C1BoundField>
    <wijmo:C1TemplateField >
    <asp:Image ID="myIMG" runat="server" ImageUrl="" Width="240px"
    Height="180px" />

    and in

    Protected Sub grdConsegna_RowDataBound(sender As Object, e As
    ' cambio l'image url al controllo image del template da me definito

    If e.Row.RowType = DataControlRowType.DataRow Then
    DirectCast(e.Row.Cells(5).FindControl("myIMG"), Image).ImageUrl =
    "getImage.aspx?ID=" & e.Row.Cells(0).Text
    End If
    End Sub

    at the next time
