Dear Experts

I have a jpeg file that I am displaying in my Vb.NET application using picture box control
I have the word coordinate position of all these words present in the jpeg file.

Right now I am using the pictirebox sizemode as stretch mode. I am able to highlight the word at the correct position as per the code snippet attached below.

But, as per a new requirement, I can no longer go with stretch mode of picturebox. I have to use the zoom mode.

How do I adjust the "rect" coordinates now so that it highlights the words in zoom mode. I have tried many ways to adjust the coordinates but no success.

I appreciate any help on this.

Thanks in advance

' READ target image file
 
        Dim origImage As New Bitmap(imageFileName)
        Dim targetimage As Bitmap = New Bitmap(origImage, origImage.Width , origImage.Height )
        PictBox_Target_Height_Ratio = PictureBox1.Height / targetimage.Height
        PictBox_Target_Width_Ratio = PictureBox1.Width / targetimage.Width
        PictureBox1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage
 
 
    Private Sub PictureBox1_Paint(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.PaintEventArgs) Handles PictureBox1.Paint
        Dim highlightColor As Color = Color.FromArgb(196, 255, 255, 0)
        Dim brush As New SolidBrush(highlightColor)
        Dim rect As New Rectangle(iLeft * PictBox_Target_Width_Ratio, iTop * PictBox_Target_Height_Ratio, (iRight - iLeft) * PictBox_Target_Width_Ratio, (iBottom - iTop) * PictBox_Target_Height_Ratio)
 
        e.Graphics.FillRectangle(brush, rect)
        brush.Dispose()
    End Sub

The following method will convert a point in control coordinates to a point in Image coordinates. All it does is determine the bounds of the actual image in control coordinates that the, and then maps the control coordinates to image coordinates.
Private Function GetImagePoint(ByVal pb As PictureBox, ByVal p As Point) As Point
    ' Get the Client rectangle and the scale at which the image is displayed
    Dim client As Rectangle = pb.ClientRectangle
    Dim scale As Double = Math.Min(CDbl(client.Width) / pb.Image.Width, CDbl(client.Height) / pb.Image.Height)
    
    ' Get the bounds of the image in control coordinates
    Dim imgBounds As New Rectangle(0, 0, CInt((pb.Image.Width * scale)), CInt((pb.Image.Height * scale)))
    imgBounds.X = CInt(((client.Width - imgBounds.Width) / 2))
    imgBounds.Y = CInt(((client.Height - imgBounds.Height) / 2))
    
    ' Return the point in image coordinates
    Return New Point(CInt(((p.X - imgBounds.X) / scale)), CInt(((p.Y - imgBounds.Y) / scale)))
End Function
