Can you not use this:

System.Drawing.Image myImage = new Bitmap(600, 1000);

where 1000 is your data length?

There of loads of different ways you can directly put info into an image.
Check out this article for some of the ones I use quite frequently...

You can use the PainEvent and draw the text into it with the e.Graphics.DrawString. It involves some preparation for the font and the color, but it lets you build an image from text. The documentation for the DrawString method has good samples of how to use it.

You can use the DrawImage method for situations like this, for example:

static public Bitmap Copy(Bitmap srcBitmap, Rectangle section)
{
    // Create the new bitmap and associated graphics object
    Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(section.Width, section.Height);
    Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(bmp);

    // Draw the specified section of the source bitmap to the new one
    g.DrawImage(srcBitmap, 0, 0, section, GraphicsUnit.Pixel);

    // Clean up
    g.Dispose();

    // Return the bitmap
    return bmp;
}

Hi jatkin

I am a little confused, could you explain me  again please.
  I try to create an image and the image I want to put a picture at the beginning and another at the end and in between I want to put the string as the receipts of the supermarket.

If I am your thinking so you asked me to create a bitmap like this
System.Drawing.Image = new Bitmap myImage (600, 1000);

and use the method DrawImage

static public Bitmap Copy (Bitmap srcBitmap, Rectangle section)
{
     / / Create the new bitmap and associated graphics object
     Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap (section.Width, section.Height);
     Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage (bmp);

     / / Draw the specified section of the source bitmap to the new one
     g.DrawImage (srcBitmap, 0, 0, section, GraphicsUnit.Pixel);

     / / Clean up
     g.Dispose ();

     / / Return the bitmap
     return bmp;
}
  But where do I pass the pictures I add to my image?

Thanks in advance

The above code was more of an example of how to use the DrawImage function.

For your specific case you would do:

Image xMainImage = new Bitmap(600, 1000);
Image xHeader = new Bitmap("C:\\Header.bmp");
Image xFooter = new Bitmap("C:\\Header.bmp");

Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(xMainImage);
g.DrawImage(xHeader, 0, 0, new Rectangle(0, 0, 600, 100);
g.DrawImage(xHeader, 0, 900, new Rectangle(0, 0, 600, 100);
g.Dispose();

<Put your text stuff in the middle somewhere>

Does this all make sense?
