I'm trying to clip a picture. I'm doing it by loading the picture into one picturebox, and using the PaintPicture method to paint a part of it into another picture box. Here's the code:

    Set picSource.Picture = LoadPicture(sFile)
    picDest.Width = iWidth * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX
    picDest.Height = iHeight * Screen.TwipsPerPixelY
    picDest.PaintPicture picSource.Picture, _
                         0, _
                         0, _
                         iWidth * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX, _
                         iHeight * Screen.TwipsPerPixelY, _
                         iLeft * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX, _
                         iTop * Screen.TwipsPerPixelY, _
                         iWidth * Screen.TwipsPerPixelX, _
                         iHeight * Screen.TwipsPerPixelY

But after the PaintPicture, picDest.picture is always 0. What am I doing wrong?
