Simple VB6 PictureBox Display - Selecting Picture in Code, not picturebox properties.

Let's say I have a jpg file in my c:\temp directory called hockey.jpg.  I have a picturebox (called picture1).  How do I tell the box to display c:\temp\hockey.jpg via coding instead of selecting it in the picturebox properties?  I thought it would be something like:

picture1.picture = 'c:\temp\hockey.jpg' but that is not working.

Ok, I figured that out picture1.picture = loadpicture(ipath).  Now, if the picture is BIG, how do I make it the same size as my picture box?
