VB.Net 2010 Paste Image RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm writing a desktop application (windows 7, VB.Net 2010) and one requirement is that the users should be able to paste formatted text and images into a single control, with the pasted content being saved to a database. I tried using the RichTextBox control but I a pretty major problem with it: the image quality is terrible for anything other the very simplest images. The users want to be able, for example, to paste in a snapshot of a PDF file; this results in a horribly degraded image on pasting.

    Am I barking up the wrong tree by trying to use a RichTextBox in the first place? Is there a better alternative? Or am I just doing something wrong?

    Thanks,

    Tony.
