I am trying to import a file and view it but I am getting the error "out of memory".   It is a PDF file 68k in size.

My code is below.

Thanks for the help
Connection1.Close()
        Connection1.Open()
        Me.OpenFileDialog1.FileName = "*.*"
        If (Me.OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK) Then

            'copy file to bc-biztalk
            currentfilename = OpenFileDialog1.FileName
            filenamepos = InStrRev(currentfilename, "\")
 
                 TextBox1.Text = currentfilename
>> ERROR HERE >> PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(TextBox1.Text)
                 PictureBox1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage

Open in new window

You cannot open PDF files in a picturebox, only pictures.  That is the reason for the error.

Assuming that you have Acrobat installed on the client machine, you could use the WebBrowser control to display PDF's

I added the Acrobat reader to my form and put the code in

 AxAcroPDF1.LoadFile(currentfilename)  \ path = currentfilename.  c:\test.pdf

but it will not display in my windows form.

Use the WebBrowser control and navigate to your PDF file:

WebBrowser1.Navigate("c:\test.pdf")
