Here is a sample of my code where I retrieve a fingerprint template stored in mysql database. I have stored the fingerprint template as BLOB type. I have a table with two fields or columns, CaseFileNumber and FingerP. I have stored the fingerprint template in the FingerP column and also case file number in the CaseFileNumber column When l verify the fingerprint it is able check against the database and verify if it exist or not. My problem is, how can l query the fingerprint to return the CaseFileNumber it is associated with. Here is my sample code below,

    Try
    Dim max As Integer = 2

    cn.Open()
    sqlCommand.CommandText = "Select * from ecms.fingerprint"
    sqlCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text
    sqlCommand.Connection = cn
    Dim lrd As MySqlDataReader = sqlCommand.ExecuteReader()
    Dim usr
    While lrd.Read()
        usr = lrd("FingerP")
    End While
    bytes = Nothing
    bytes = usr
    template = New DPFP.Template()
    template.DeSerialize(usr)
    'Perform match
    matcher.Verify(FeatureSet, template, matchResult)
    If matchResult.Verified Then
        EventHandlerStatus = Gui.EventHandlerStatus.Success
        MessageBox.Show("Verified!")
        'Me.Hide()
        MessageBox.Show("Done")

    Else
        EventHandlerStatus = Gui.EventHandlerStatus.Failure
        MessageBox.Show("Verification failed, User does not exist")
    End If
    cn.Close()
Finally
    cn.Dispose()
End Try

sqlCommand.CommandText = " select CaseFileNumber from ecms.fingerprint  where FingerP like %bytes% "
cn.Open()
'Dim arrImage() As Byte
Dim publictable As New DataTable
Try
    'cn.Open()
    da.SelectCommand = sqlCommand
    da.Fill(publictable)
    txtcasenumber.Text = publictable.Rows(0).Item(1)
Finally
    da.Dispose()
    cn.Close()

End Try

It throws me the exception:: An exception of type 'MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException' occurred in MySql.Data.dll but was not handled in user code

Additional information: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '%bytes%' at line 1 If there is a handler for this exception, the program may be safely continued.

Any suggestions to fix this error is highly appreciated. Thanks

Hi,

%bytes% must be surrounded by quotes, because it's a string search, so change this:

sqlCommand.CommandText = " select CaseFileNumber from ecms.fingerprint  where FingerP like %bytes% "

to:

sqlCommand.CommandText = " select CaseFileNumber from ecms.fingerprint  where FingerP like '%bytes%' "

and see if it works.

hello, l tried your suggestion, but then it gives me another error:: An exception of type 'System.IndexOutOfRangeException' occurred in System.Data.dll but was not handled in user code

Additional information: There is no row at position 0.

If there is a handler for this exception, the program may be safely continued.::
I tried changing a couple of things but no luck. Is there a way l can get the value l want and assing it into the textbox(txtcasenumber)? Thanks

The error says:

Additional information: There is no row at position 0.

So the query is not returning results, I read that da.Fill() can return the number of rows found by the query statement, so you can get that value and use a conditional statement to verify if the result is bigger than 0, and only in that case you attempt to access Rows(0), something like this:

(int)numRows = (int)da.Fill(publictable)

if(0 < numRows)
{
    txtcasenumber.Text = publictable.Rows(0).Item(1)
}

And you could also define a default case to manage empty result sets. Please, note that I'm not confident with VB.Net, so my above code could be wrong.

Hi, thanks your response. l tried your suggestion still no luck.

I suspect the fault to be from this block

        sqlCommand.CommandText = " select StudentID from student  where 
        print like '%template%' "

        Dim publictable As New DataTable
        Try

            adapter.SelectCommand = sqlCommand

            adapter.Fill(publictable)
            txtstudentID.Text = publictable.Rows(0).Item(1)
        Finally

            adapter.Dispose()
            cn.Close()
        End Try

I am passing a variable to an mysql statement. Now the variable resides in the code and not the database so querying it will return no results which l am currently getting. Is there a way to use select statement to query mysql to retrieve the studentID associated with the fingerprint template in the database(BLOB).

You can add parameters to the selectCommand property, see these examples:

In your case, in pseudo code, try something like:

sqlCommand.CommandText = "select StudentID from student  where print like '%' + @template + '%'"
sqlCommand.Parameters.Add("@template", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 40, "Value Here")

Follow the examples in the documentation.
