Hi All,

I am having a frustrating time dealing with bitmaps and picturebox in vb.net for a windows mobile 5 application.

I currently have several, different sized bitmaps that i want to view in a picturebox but it seems like the AutoSize is not available in CF!

is there any other way i can automatically resize the picturebox to fit the dimensions of a loaded bitmap?

any help/guidance/assistance would be much appreciated

thanks

Baz

Does something like this work in CF?

        Dim bmp As New Bitmap("c:\someImage.bmp")
        PictureBox1.Size = bmp.Size
        PictureBox1.Image = bmp
