Hi,

I am trying load an image from file to PictureBox

How can I load an image from file to PictureBox but on .Net Compact Framework

Example:

filename = " c:\picture.jpg "
PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(filename)

Error :
'FromFile' is not a member 'System.Drawing.Image'.

Thanks for your help.

try this :

 Dim MyImage As Bitmap
  If Not (MyImage Is Nothing) Then
    MyImage.Dispose()
  End If
 Image1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.AutoSize
 filename = " c:\picture.jpg "
 MyImage = New Bitmap((filename))
 Image1.Image = CType(MyImage, Image)

this will load the image from filename into Image1 ,, :P
