LoadPicture, SavePicture, StdPicture support in VB .NET ?? - 10-12-2005 , 01:59 PM
I'm trying to move some VB6 data and algorithms dealing with pictures and
images to VB.NET.
Is there a .NET equivalent of these VB6 commands (LoadPicture, SavePicture)?
I think StdPicture is defined in stdole ... so does that mean that VB.NET
can deal with such objects via Interop? I am writing a VB.NET app that has
to use a COM object that returns a StdPicture.
I am trying to see what's available in .NET VB6 compatibility but I can't
seem to add this library as a reference to my VB.NET project.
Thankful for any help ...

The flat GDI+ API has methods that will turn handle/hpal into GDI+
images - you need to select the method according to the StdPicture type.
I don't know how to go from GDI+ to .NET but I think it is simple
since the .NET graphics are AFAIK based on GDI+.

Then look at the Microsoft.VisualBasic.Compatibility.VB6.Support class.
It has a few methods that might help you out (i.e. "IPictureToImage" and
