Hey guys!!

I have a C# application in which I would like to display a signature that is stored in a bmp file.
The signature is in \\CAKPOSSERVER\C\POSiTrack\Sigs.  The file name would be SIG_450566 or some other number matching a transaction number.  I would like to display this signature in a picture box on a form that is opened to show all the information from transaction number 450566 or some other transaction selected in a list or by keying 450566 in a text box and pressing enter.  This would display the transaction form along with the signature.

Thanks guys!!

Jerry

Try something like...
        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            string folder = @"\\CAKPOSSERVER\C\POSiTrack\Sigs";
            string bmpName = "SIG_" + textBox1.Text + ".bmp";
            string FileName = System.IO.Path.Combine(folder, bmpName);
            if (System.IO.File.Exists(FileName))
            {
                try
                {
                    using (Image img = Image.FromFile(FileName))
                    {
                        pictureBox1.Image = new Bitmap(img);
                    }
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("File: " + FileName + Environment.NewLine + ex.ToString(), "Error Opening Image");
                }
            }
            else
            {
                MessageBox.Show("File: " + FileName, "File Not Found");
            }
        }
