Tips to Convert Image to Array and Array to Image, C# .NET

I know my friend working on .NET development in a company. She wanted me to help her out in an occasion today. She actually wanted to convert a double array(double[]) into an image (Image) in C# .NET. I did googling on the this thing and I found something useful for my modifications.

You know I do also have little knowledge on .NET. I have Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 installed on my laptop which helped me to do this work. Unfortunately I could not finish this for converting exactly from double[] to Image. However it is useful for converting byte[] to Image.


Converting double[] to byte[], then using that will work for this C# code. I will try it out and let you know in the comments section. Here I share my search on this:








using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
//Namespaces to be added
using System.IO;
using System.Drawing.Imaging;

namespace doubletoimg
{
    public partial class frmMain : Form
    {
        public byte[] bImg; //byte array
        //public double dImg;
        public frmMain()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        private void btnChoose_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            if (ofdImage.ShowDialog()==DialogResult.OK )
            {
                bImg = ImageToArray(Image.FromFile(ofdImage.FileName));
                //dImg = BitConverter.ToDouble(bImg,0);
                //bImg = BitConverter.GetBytes(dImg);
            }
            lblMsg.Text = "Converted to Array!";
        }
        public byte[] ImageToArray(Image imgIn)
        {
            //MemoryStream is a class in System.IO namespace
            MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
            imgIn.Save(ms, ImageFormat.Jpeg);
            return ms.ToArray();
        }
        public Image ArrayToImage(byte[] bIn)
        {
            MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(bIn);
            return Image.FromStream(ms);
        }
       
        private void btnShow_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            pbShow.Image = ArrayToImage(bImg);
        }
       
    }
}












Hope the Information is useful!

Tips and Tricks to set Legal Notice Logon Message on Windows 7

I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my laptop Dell Studio 1555. I searched on Google for setting a Legal Notice Logon Message on Windows 7. I would like to share the experience. Please read it carefully, it is applicable for Windows XP and Vista also.

What is a Legal Notice?
Legal Notice on a computer system is the logon disclaimer message for the authorized use of the system and its resources. It's just a security notice to the users who are going to use the system. Though it is not mandatory for personal and home computers, it is used wide for computers in network, especially in an organization.

I explain you the process. It is done by modifying the Windows Registry Keys. Windows Registry is the heart of the Windows OS which keeps the system and application softwares running by its associated registry values for various properties.

Legal Notice can be added to the system registry following the below steps:
  1. Open Windows Registry - Run > type regedit > Enter
  2. Navigate to the path - HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  3. Select 'legalnoticecaption' and set your text. For example, "Security Notice by User" (without quotes)
  4. Select 'legalnoticetext' and set your message. (disclaimer message for authorized use)
  5. Close the Registry by clicking (X) on the top right of the opened window.
  6. Restart the system. Now the welcome screen will be the legal notice you created.


Enjoy the trick!



Tips to Keep Your Web History - Google Web History

The fundamental purpose of living is sharing. Sharing anything gives us immense pleasure while sharing knowledge and experience gives us one more life. I started sharing through this blog where you will soon find bigger updates.

My Web History - Sample Page

A smart way to keep your web history alive -- It's often said, in your school or college days, that taking notes is 100% better than listening classes. We all here do more searches online, sooner or later, we forget every searches, repeat the same search again. I can clearly say you the drawbacks and advantages of this kind of search:

Drawbacks:

  • You will be wasting your golden time by repeating searches.
  • Your basic power of remembrance will be void.
  • You will forget the related keywords which brought you better results on previous search.
  • You will not have a proof of your searches.
Advantage:
  • If you use most related keyword, you will get better results sometimes.
This is the only advantage. But if you store your searches somewhere online?

Here is the solution: Google Web History

All you need is a Google account.
  1. Create a Google account.
  2. Enable web history, by visiting above link.
  3. Do googling when you are logged in your Google account.
  4. Your web searches will be saved.
Enjoy the tip!

Sachin Tendulkar's World Record in ODI



Welcome Back Visitors!

First of all, we should congratulate Sachin Tendulkar, the Master Blaster of Indian Cricket Team who scored unbeatable 200* in the One Day International match against South Africa yesterday (24-Feb-2010). He is the first cricketer who ever scored double century in ODIs.

Kudos to the God of Cricketer!

We can not forget the moments he recorded this impossible world record. He scored 200* from 147 balls, taking 25 fours and 3 sixes. It was amazing entertainment watching his blasting batting performance on the ground, Gwalior cricket stadium.

The previous record done by a Pakistan batsman and a Zimbabwe batsman had been broken with this outstanding Indian!! We are proud of him.

India scored 401 for 3 wickets and won the match easily. As we know, the Master Blaster is the Man of the Match!

Read more about Sachin at Wikipedia, the free online encylopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sachin_Tendulkar

If Cricket is the religion, Sachin is the GOD!
