VB.net image is not declared

Hi. In the following code I get the error "image is not declared" at the line marked 'ERROR


    Dim result As DialogResult = OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog
        If result = Windows.Forms.DialogResult.OK Then
            If (OpenFileDialog1.FileName IsNot Nothing) Or (OpenFileDialog1.FileName <> String.Empty) Then

                PictureBox1.BackgroundImage = Image.FromFile(OpenFileDialog1.FileName) 'ERROR
                PictureBox1.BackgroundImageLayout = ImageLayout.Zoom
                Label1.Visible = True
                TextBox1.Visible = True
                Label1.Text = "Name"
                TextBox1.Clear()

            End If
        End If

have you added the reference System.Drawing?

You would also need to add the

Imports System.Drawing

at the top of your code file after you add the reference.

The reference is certainly set, otherwise the Form itself would not compile and would not show in the Form Designer.

Imports would work and would be more interesting if you often call stuff in System.Drawing, but you can also define the namespace right in the line of code.

PictureBox1.BackgroundImage = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(OpenFileDialog1.FileName)

And since System is always assumed by default in a .NET application (it is imported at the project level), the following would also work in most situations:

PictureBox1.BackgroundImage = Drawing.Image.FromFile(OpenFileDialog1.FileName)
