Storing binary data in a web page

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Michael Bredbury, Nov 5, 2003.

  1. I am developing using Visual Studio .NET 2002 using ASP.NET and
    VB.NET. This is a web-based project which needs to install various
    ActiveX components on the users PC. ActiveX is needed because the
    project involves automation of Word, Excel etc on the CLIENT side.

    I have binary data which is an EXE file stored inside an SQL Server
    Image table which I need to pass to the clients browser and create the
    original EXE file on their hard disk. I want to store the data inside
    a web-page and then use the very large data block as a parameter to an
    embedded ActiveX control which will take the data and re-create the
    original file.

    The area I need help with is storing large amounts of binary data
    inside a web-page. Do I use XML? Do I use RegisterClientScriptBlock
    and build up a large script which is a function just to return the
    data?

    Any ideas please?

    Mike Bredbury.
