  • Hi,

    Is your code like this?

     Private Sub Button1_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
            If PictureBox1.Image Is Nothing Then
                PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile("D:\test.png")
            End If
        End Sub

    Best Regards,

  • One option is to not use a MessageBox but instead place a image into the picture box indicating what they need to do.

    Requires a PictureBox and two buttons.

    Public Class Form1
        Private _pinvalidImage As Image
        ''' <summary> 
        ''' Responsive for creating a error image 
        ''' </summary> 
        ''' <param name="pMessageText">Message to display in image</param> 
        ''' <param name="pFontName">Font for pMessageText</param> 
        ''' <param name="pFontSize">Font size for pMessageText</param> 
        ''' <param name="pBackColor">pMessageText back color</param> 
        ''' <param name="pForeColor">pMessageText fore color</param> 
        ''' <param name="pWidth">Image width</param> 
        ''' <param name="pHeight">Image height</param> 
        ''' <returns></returns> 
        Private Function ConvertTextToImage(pMessageText As String,
                                            pFontName As String, pFontSize As Integer,
                                            pBackColor As Color,
                                            pForeColor As Color,
                                            pWidth As Integer,
                                            pHeight As Integer) As Bitmap
            Dim bmp As New Bitmap(pWidth, pHeight)
            Using graphics As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(bmp)
                Dim font As New Font(pFontName, pFontSize)
                graphics.FillRectangle(New SolidBrush(pBackColor), 0, 0, bmp.Width, bmp.Height)
                graphics.DrawString(pMessageText, font, New SolidBrush(pForeColor), 0, 0)
            End Using
            Return bmp
        End Function
        Private Sub Form1_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
            _pinvalidImage = ConvertTextToImage(Environment.NewLine & "Upload an image first", "Arial",
                                                20, Color.Red, Color.White, 300, 200)
            PictureBox1.Tag = "init"
            OpenFileDialog1.InitialDirectory = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory
        End Sub
        Public ReadOnly Property InvalidImage() As Image
                Return _pinvalidImage
            End Get
        End Property
        Private Sub cmdNextAction_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles cmdNextAction.Click
            Dim imageStates = {"init", "empty"}
            If imageStates.Contains(PictureBox1.Tag.ToString()) Then
                PictureBox1.Image = InvalidImage
                MessageBox.Show("Picture is loaded do next action")
            End If
        End Sub
        Private Sub cmdLoadImageFromFile_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles cmdLoadImageFromFile.Click
            If OpenFileDialog1.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then
                PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile(OpenFileDialog1.FileName)
                PictureBox1.Tag = "loaded"
            End If
        End Sub
    End Class

    Click next button without an image.

    Load an image

    Do next again
