Hi experts,

I want to display image which located in http://myimages.mysite.com onto PictureBox in VB 2005 forms.
I tried it with following codes with ERROR in line "PictureBox1 = Image.FromFile( http://myimages.mysite.com /upload/pubFilePath)"
Would you please advise me?

Thanks,
HD

    Private Sub PhotoDataGridView_CellClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles PhotoDataGridView.CellClick
        If e.RowIndex >= 0 Then
            pubFileName = PhotoDataGridView.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells("PhotoFileName").Value.ToString
            PictureBox1 = Image.FromFile( http://myimages.mysite.com /upload/pubFilePath) ===> ERROR
        End If
    End Sub

Hi expert,
This PictureBox1 = Image.FromStream(ms) has eroor message:
Value of Type 'System.Drawing.Image' cannot be converted to 'System.Windows.Forms.Picture'

What should I do ?

Oops.  Change it to:
PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromStream(ms)

Hi expert,

When I run it, I have this error message "URI formats are not supported" at "           Dim ms As New IO.MemoryStream(wc.DownloadData("http://sunenergy.oncmc.com /upload/pubFilePath"))"

Your kid advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I just copy/pasted the url you were using.  Looking at it now more closely, I see two things:
1)  You have an extra space in your url.
2)  You don't specify a file name.  Did you mean to use pubFileName from above?

Try this:
IO.MemoryStream(wc.DownloadData("http://sunenergy.oncmc.com/upload/pubFilePath/" & pubFileName))

Thanks expert!
It's working fine with this:

          Dim ms As New IO.MemoryStream(wc.DownloadData("http://sunenergy.oncmc.com/upload/" & pubFilePath))
