I want to display jpeg's of various sizes in either an image or picture box but I don't want the width to exceed 5625 twips or the height to exceed 7185 twips. (I would like to reduce pictures larger then these measurements to fit within these specs and maintain the hxw ratio to avoid distortion) It would be desireable to expand the picture (if smaller) to fit this window, but not neccessary (again maintaining ratio). I don't want to use scroll bars.
I have tried paintpicture meathod but don't know how to reduce and maintain ratio. Please provide code examples.
(I am not really a programmer!!!)
Thanks

Use an image box. Set its height and width properties to those you specified and set its strech property to true.
All images that will be loaded into the image box will be streched to the size of the box.

Note that this is only possible with the image box, not the picture box because the last does not have a strech property.

Thanks jclarkmcse for both the points and the grade, and you are welcome.

GivenRandy,
Any picture will be distorted if its dimentions are not somewhat close to the dimentions of the image box, regardless of the way (the technique) you use to display it. In fact, the distortion increases proportionally to the difference between the dimensions of the image box and the actual picture.

Regards to all.
