Getting Started for a Newbie

Hi everyone,

I am new to web programming and .net and I was wondering if there is any documentation with this project and/or some guideline to get started with the basic functionality of this control

There are two links at the bottom of the home page of the project which should get you started. If there's something you don't understand, post here.

If you are new to ASP.NET the links on the homepage may not help you much. So here is a simple steps you need to follow. I hope this helps.

Create a Project in Visual Studio 2005
By Default Default.aspx will be created.
Open the original default.aspx from samples directory in a Text editor.
Copy the contents of Default.aspx from Samples directory in clipboard
Paste the contents in VS 2005 Default.aspx file. (This will replace the original code created by VS 2005)

Download the MetaDataExtractor. Remember to download older version. 2.2.2d

Follow the below link for details why you should use version 2.2.2d

Unzip the assembly file
In visual Studio 2005 add reference. Browse and select the MetaDataExtractor assembly.

Select Add file in Visual Studio 2005
Add all the files templated.aspx. album.ashx and album.css
in VS 2005 Select Default.aspx tab in code window.
Switch the Tab in project window to Design view
Drag and drop album.ashx from solution explorer in Design view.

Buid and run

VS 2005 will open your browser and it will be blank (Black)
Now copy any of you image folder to your Project Binary directory and run again

You will be able to see Photo handler functionality

Good luck.
