I have managed to use this code to open an appropriate dynamic image from a recordset.

It works fine <img src=../images/dmxzone/forum/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

However, the images are of different width and height... my question is:
How can I have the layer popup resize according to the image dimensions that are called from the recordset?
My database does not store image dimensions so I cannot call those details from the recordset.

Hi Karl,

The only solution I can think of is to write server-side code that read the image dimensions and when set them in a similar manner as the image name.

That sounds like a great idea.

Could you point me in the right direction or examples of code I might use?

Doesn't sound like a great idea to me. The behavior should be able to leave the size "as is" for dynamic photos. I've spent about $300 on 3 different gallery/photo behaviors and each one has limitations with dynamic images that have ended up making them useless for me. My images come from a database and I have different sizes. Why would it be so hard to just show the photo as is without resizing it! I am very frustrated. In the past DMX was the FIRST place I came to, to look for quality behaviors that would solve problems. I know there is some great stuff here, but it looks like you have forgotton about folks that create DYNAMIC sites and now you focus only on sites with existing static images. It looks like I will need to implement something else (from someone else).

That is still to be addressed.
