i now can save a fingerprint template from database using this code..

Dim fingerprintData As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream
        Template.Serialize(fingerprintData)
        fingerprintData.Position = 0
        Dim br As BinaryReader = New BinaryReader(fingerprintData)
        Dim bytes() As Byte = br.ReadBytes(CType(fingerprintData.Length, Int32))
        Dim cmd As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand("INSERT INTO fininger_table VALUES(@FIRSTNAME, @LASTNAME, @FINGERPRINT)", conn)
        cmd.Parameters.Add("FIRSTNAME", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = CaptureForm.tboxFname.Text
        cmd.Parameters.Add("LASTNAME", SqlDbType.VarChar).Value = CaptureForm.tboxLname.Text
        cmd.Parameters.Add("FINGERPRINT", SqlDbType.Image).Value = bytes
        conn.Open()
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        conn.Close()

and i fetch the data when the form is load..

 conn.Open()
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM Fininger_table", conn)
        Dim rdr As SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
        Dim MemStream As IO.MemoryStream
        Dim fpBytes As Byte()
        While rdr.Read()
            fpBytes = rdr("FINGERPRINT")
            MemStream = New IO.MemoryStream(fpBytes)
            Dim template As New DPFP.Template(MemStream)
            OnTemplate(template)
            ' template.DeSerialize(MemStream)
        End While
        rdr.Close()
        conn.Close()

and now i'm stuck..i dont know how to match the fingerprint from the database to verify the user..

plz help me out..tnx in advance

btw im using a DIGITAL PERSONA FINGERPRINT READER..with the OTW SDK

i already seen that too..but im confused bout the "Dim FPList As List(Of AppData) = New List(Of AppData)" thing that he do..sigh

dude did you already solved your problem? cause I got same problem here. Need help

this's old sample code for UareU 4500..
connection to DB using MyAccess but u can modify it to work with SQL or MySQL server..
you need uareu SDK to use this code

@Rakhmat

downloaded your sample code its not working.. if it is working can it save the fingerprint on the database and verify it ?

How is the image being stored in the database? Subsequent reads of a fingerprint will not exactly match previous ones, such as that stored in the database. Fingerprint readers will look for a correlate major features (ridges, etc) to generate a match using statistical processes. I would assume the FPVerification function from UareUSDK.clsFPVerification does that?
