the code below is not retrieving image from db to listview, but if you click listview it will retrieve image from db to picturebox

 Dim constr As String = "Data Source = localhost; User ID = root; Database = chamchamber"
    Dim cn As MySqlConnection
    Dim cmd As MySqlCommand

    Dim da As MySqlDataAdapter
    Dim dt As DataTable
    Dim ds As DataSet
    Dim dr As MySqlDataReader

 Private Sub ListView1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ListView1.Click

        cn = New MySqlConnection(constr)
        cn.Open()
        cmd = New MySqlCommand
        cmd.Connection = cn

        cmd.CommandText = "SELECT * from category where id= '" & ListView1.SelectedItems(0).Text & "'"
        dr = cmd.ExecuteReader()
        If (dr.HasRows) Then
            While (dr.Read())
                With Me
                    'fetch image from database
                    Dim imgBytes() As Byte = dr("IMG") 'image field
                    Dim image As Bitmap = New Bitmap(New System.IO.MemoryStream(imgBytes)) 'convert binary to image

                    PictureBox1.Image = image 'show picture to picture box
                End With
            End While
        Else
            MsgBox("No records Found!")
        End If
    End Sub

ssssss.png

but now its work now my problem, i dont know how to remove the system byte under the image

i dont know how to remove the system byte and change it to "NAME" of the item

Is the name being generated by "dr("ID").ToString()"?

Private Sub retrieve()

    ListView2.Items.Clear()
    cn = New MySqlConnection(constr)
    cn.Open()
    cmd = New MySqlCommand
    cmd.Connection = cn
    cmd.CommandText = "Select * from category"
    da = New MySqlDataAdapter(cmd)
    ds = New DataSet

    Try

        ListView2.Clear()
        Dim imglist As New ImageList
        imglist.ColorDepth = ColorDepth.Depth32Bit
        ListView2.LargeImageList = imglist
        ListView2.LargeImageList.ImageSize = New System.Drawing.Size(100, 100)
        constr = "select * from items"

        Dim dt_images As New DataTable

        cmd.Connection = cn
        cmd.CommandText = constr
        da.SelectCommand = cmd

        da.Fill(dt_images)
        For Each dr As DataRow In dt_images.Rows
            Dim img_buffer = CType(dr("IMAGE"), Byte())

            Dim img_stream As New MemoryStream(img_buffer, True)

            img_stream.Write(img_buffer, 0, img_buffer.Length)
            imglist.Images.Add(dr("ID").ToString(), New Bitmap(img_stream))
            img_stream.Close()

            Dim lsvparent As New ListViewItem

            lsvparent.Text = dr("IMAGE").ToString     'if you remove it the system byte will remove to or hide
            lsvparent.ImageKey = dr("ID").ToString       ' if you remoce it the image will hide

            ListView2.Items.Add(lsvparent)
        Next
    Catch ex As Exception
        MsgBox(ex.Message)

    End Try
End Sub

the name is not generated by the ID
