Hi all. Im trying to display images from the web into a picturebox control. when the form loads, i'd like for the pictureBox control to read a URL from a textbox control and load the image. i found the VB equivalent code to do this but im a newbie and cant translate it into C#:
PictureBox1.Image = New System.Drawing.Bitmap(New IO.MemoryStream(New System.Net.WebClient().DownloadData(TextBox1.Text))) // Assumes there is a textbox called textbox1 and a picturebox called picturebox1 on a form. Textbox1.text should be the URL of the picture.
Is there an easier way to go about this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance

pictureBox1.ImageLocation = textBox1.Text;

you're probably using framework 1.1... That method and property are available with 2.0 only. So, to translate your code:
pictureBox1.Image =new System.Drawing.Bitmap(new System.IO.MemoryStream(new System.Net.WebClient().DownloadData(textBox1.Text)));

Either use System.IO.MemoryStream or just MemoryStream...

WebRequest req = WebRequest.Create("http://www.google.co.il/Picture.jpg");
Stream stream = req.GetResponse().GetResponseStream(); Image img = Image.FromStream(stream); this.pictureBox1.Image = img;
