Hi

I want to dynamically add several [Picture Box] controls on my windows form. The number dynamically created will depend on what a SELECT statement returns of rows count at run time from the database.

What's the code segment that creates a Picture Box dynamically?

private void button2_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
List<Image> pictures = new List<Image>(GetImagesFromDB());
List<PictureBox> lst = new List<PictureBox>();
for (int i = 0; i < pictures.Count; i++)
{
PictureBox pb = new PictureBox()
{
Size = new Size(75, 75),
Location = new Point(5, (i * 80) + 5),
BorderStyle = BorderStyle.Fixed3D,
Image=pictures[i]
};
lst.Add(pb);
this.Controls.Add(pb);
pb.BringToFront();
pb.Click += new EventHandler(pb_Click);
}
}

Open in new window


above is the code to add picture boxes, i am sure you can always run a sqlcommand and use executeadapter method and get the data in datatable/dataset.

The count of loop can be then set to count of rows in datatable returned.

Thanks BuggyCoder

Event though I was looking for VB code, but I managed to convert it to VB using a C#-to-VB convertor tool

Anyway, what shall this (GetImagesFromDB())) return exactly?

this will contain the code to fetch data from database, probably the number of images and other image detail if any.

you can use SQLCommand and SQLDataAdapter/SqlDataReader for that purpose....
