Guess that'd be safer. It would be a major handicap for a fingerprintingdevice if you couldn't use it on a system that uses virtual memory though. Nah, it's prolly just an array of bytes in memory that need be transformed to a bitmap, with the restriction of not using temporary files.
The law requires any and all personal information of an employee that gets saved to disk (id numbers, details ect) needs to be encrypted, or protected In Europe the law currently states that it includes fingerprints, and soon it will be law here in SA.
Now my problem is when the image gets saved to the disk it gets saved as a clear image hence the fact that i need to save it somewhere where no one via the windows shell or dos can get a hold of it even for that split second before it gets pulled back up in memory(Using the Image object i need) and deleted from disk
I was able to retrieve the raw data, though i had trouble could not use a memory stream to write it into an image field i had to take the image loop through the byte array which will be the same length as the width and height of the acquired image maye a 2D loop and take the byte array and read it back as a color onto a bitmap .
That solved my problem
Though thanks for all the posts and all the help, the Truecrypt example will be usefull to me in other application i am developing and the named pipes solution is also one i will consider.
Then you are handling the wrong click event - the DataGridView Click event always passes the DataGridView as the sender. Are you handling the Context Menu strip Click event instead - in which case the Click event sender will be a context menu strip?
BTW: Don't post in two places (as someone mentioned under Q&A) - it duplicates effort and annoys people. Go back and delete your Q&A version.
