I'd like to use XML to draw only parts of an image using C#. That is to say ...Something like what Winamp does for its GUI, you've got your graphics stored in .jpg or .png files, and several things stored in each image ..and the images are drawn from seperate parts of the images...so ,say I want to draw my titlebar, I've got an image named "bars.png", and the title bar is in 100,100x200,400, I want to draw only that portion of the image to the screen ..any ideas?

Are you talking about Image Strip
something like this
ImagesToolbar.Images.AddStrip((Image)Resourcer.GetObject("ImagesToolbar"));

as used in this example

Eeh, No. I'm talking about using template files to store series of images...

Say, I've got a .png that has 4 or 5 different pictures in it, it's for drawing a GUI. I want to be able to draw only the image at certain coordinates from the .png to the screen, like you'd do with 3D Textures and such for wrapping them around meshes.

Ohh i c,
What Winamp does is, it has predefined areas where it knows that which image regions are going to be, i.e. from which pixel to which pixel is going to be which button and so on. so it crops the images and place them on the required objects.

What you can do is define such regions and in your application Crop the images as different images from the main PNG and place the temp image object anywhere you want .
For croping the image
