OpenDialogBox to a PictureBox RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to show in a PictureBox an image (.jpg) selected from the OpenDialogBox.  I tried:

    PictureBox1.Image = OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog(), but this shows as an error that it can not be converted to System.Drawing.image

  • Hi Martin,
    try this:

        If OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then
          PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(OpenFileDialog1.FileName)
        End If

    Best Regards / Viele Grüße
