Auto resizing a picture to fit

Hi,
When I load a picture into a picture object, it's too big and is truncated to the right and bottom. So I am trying to re-size it.
I tried 2 things:
1. Picture.AutoSize = true
It complains that "Method or data member not found". I am using VB6.

2. A solution I found at this site:
Dim AspectRatio As Single
Dim NewHeight As Long
Dim TmpPic As StdPictureSet Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture("pic")

AspectRatio = TmpPic.Width / TmpPic.Height
NewHeight = Picture1.ScaleWidth / AspectRatio

Picture1.AutoRedraw = True    ' Necessary to keep the picture from being erased when window gets repainted
Picture1.PaintPicture TmpPic, 0, (Picture1.ScaleHeight - NewHeight) / 2, Picture1.ScaleWidth, NewHeight
' Arguments are as follows:   Source picture, Destination X, Destination Y, New Width, New Height

It also complains that "Method or data member not found" at Picture1.ScaleWidth

Thank you for your help.
Phil
