Hi Faizal,

Please take reference to the below code and correct your code.

If you want to  show No Image in place of null values, so you can do like that, refer below smaple.


    <asp:GridView ID="gvImages" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" OnRowDataBound="OnRowDataBound">
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Id" HeaderText="Id" />
            <asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name" />
            <asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Image">
                    <asp:Image ID="Image1" runat="server" Height="50px" Width="50px" ImageUrl='<%# Eval("ImagePath") %>' />



protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!this.IsPostBack)
        System.Data.DataTable dt = new System.Data.DataTable();
        dt.Columns.AddRange(new System.Data.DataColumn[] { 
            new System.Data.DataColumn("Id", typeof(int)), 
            new System.Data.DataColumn("Name", typeof(string)), 
            new System.Data.DataColumn("ImagePath", typeof(string)) });
        dt.Rows.Add(1, "Koala.jpg", "~/images/Koala.jpg");
        dt.Rows.Add(2, "Lighthouse.jpg", "~/images/Lighthouse.jpg");
        dt.Rows.Add(3, "Desert.jpg", "~/images/Desert.jpg");
        dt.Rows.Add(4, "Hydrangeas.jpg", "");
        this.gvImages.DataSource = dt;

protected void OnRowDataBound(object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
    if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow)
        string imageName = e.Row.Cells[1].Text;
        if (!System.IO.File.Exists(Server.MapPath("~/images/") + imageName))
            (e.Row.FindControl("Image1") as Image).ImageUrl = "~/images/NoImage.png";


If you are using ImageField then you can assign NullImageUrl to display default image.

<asp:ImageField DataImageUrlField="ImagePath" HeaderText="Image" NullImageUrl="~/images/NoImage.png">
