Hi
I have a small section of VBA code which I need to convert/rewrite in C#.
Basically the code specifies the count, name and location of images which are to be used in a gallery on a custom Excel Ribbon:

Sub getBSCGalleryItemImages(control As IRibbonControl, index As Integer, ByRef image)
    Set image = LoadPicture("//images/report_snapshot_" & index + 1 & ".jpg")
End Sub
Sub getBSCGalleryItemCount(control As IRibbonControl, ByRef count)
        count = 3
End Sub

Open in new window


Thanks for the help

It would be something like the following:
void getBSCGalleryItemImages(IRibbonControl control,int Index, ref image) {

    image = LoadPicture("//images/report_snapshot_" + int.parse(index + 1) + ".jpg");

}

void getBSCGalleryItemCount(IRibbonControl control, ref count) {

        count = 3;

}

Open in new window


Per your code I didn't know what type variable count was or Image, so those may have to be added.

doesn't look like that will work - "LoadPicture" method is not recognised

OK.
You will need a

using System.Drawing;

at the top of the module in C#


String path="//images/report_snapshot_" + int.parse(index + 1) + ".jpg";
Image image1 = Image.FromFile(path);

Image.FromFile()
can load an image from a file.
