    I have trying to build a control: PieChartControl : System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebContro
    in which i am creating a dynamic image based on some data from database

    in the render method of the control, I set the content type of image/jpeg
    this.Context.Response.ContentType = "image/jpeg"
    and then once I am done with creating the image, I save it to the output stream
    bmp.Save(this.Context.Response.OutputStream, ImageFormat.Jpeg)

    I added it to the toolbar, and dropped on my test form, and its shows characters like its not recognizing the content type

    Can anyone please let me know what I am doing wrong

    I'll really appreciate any help

  2. You need to call this control from a page that has no content. Basically
    it's empty, no HTML or anything (even one space sent to the browser can mess
    this up). You then call this page as the source of an image tag. For example
    <img src="myimage.aspx"> where myimage.aspx has the control in it. You can't
    embed the binary data into the web page which is why you get the dump of
