Hello

I want to load an image into an picturebox and after that I want to unload it so I can delete the image-file (cannot delete it while it is in the picturebox)

I tried to put picturebox.image = nothing but I still could not delete it...

Is there an other possibility to do that?

thanks

Sven

Hi!

Sol 1:
  Create an ImageList control and add your images to the collection. This way your images are included in your resources files, so you can delete them anytime you want it. To get a pic from the imagelist control to a picturebox control you can use this code:

       ' Me.picBox.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage
       Me.picBox.Image = Me.ImageList1.Images.Item(0)

The only problem is that in an imagelist control can store images no larger than 256x256, so this solution in no good for large images because they are resized to a max 256x256 format.


Sol2:
 Create a temporary image object , use it and then dispose it:

        Dim imgObj As Image
        imgObj = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile("C:\Images\Winter.jpg")
        Me.picBox.Image = New Bitmap(imgObj)
        imgObj.Dispose()

This is much better :)

Good luck!

This should do it.  Change the "LocalPath" your image path and "Picture.jpg" as the Picture name

File.Delete("C:\LocalPath\Picture.jpg")
