The asp:image attribute ImageUrl bind value dynamically using Eval function. The Eval function is set with image_url field in image_tb table.

 id image_name image_url
 1 img1 ~/images/img1.jpg

 <asp:DataGrid  ID="datagrid1" runat ="server"      font-names="Times New Roman"
font-size="14px" ShowFooter="True" ForeColor="#333399" BorderWidth="1px" BorderColor="Black"
BorderStyle="Solid"     AutoGenerateColumns="False"   AllowPaging ="true"  >
         <Columns >
              <asp:TemplateColumn >
<HeaderStyle HorizontalAlign="Center"></HeaderStyle>
                     <ItemTemplate >                      
                         <asp:Image ID="gvimg" AlternateText = 'tamilnadu government jobs' runat="server" ImageUrl='<%#Eval("image_url")%>' Visible='<%# IIf(Eval("Image_url") Is DBNull.Value, "False", "True")%>'  Width ="60px" Height ="40px" /> 
              <asp:TemplateColumn >
<HeaderStyle ></HeaderStyle>
                     <ItemTemplate >

In Code Behind Page(Vb.Net)
Dim con As New SqlConnection(strConn)
        id2 = ddd
        Dim strCmd As String = ""
        strCmd += "SELECT "
        strCmd += " * "
        strCmd += "FROM img_tb"
        Dim oDS As New DataSet
        ' Execute the command and add a named table to the dataset
        Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter(strCmd, con)
        da.Fill(oDS, "ResumeList")
        datagrid1.DataSource = oDS
        'Close the connection
In code page datagrid1.DataBind() will load entire table value in datagrid.
