FileStream and PictureBox
Posted by putxi on April 24, 2007
Have you got problems with a locked File? Are you searching a unlocker aplication? If your file is locked due to a PictureBox you are doing something badly. You must open the PictureBox like in the following example and the message of “this file is used for another person or application” will desapear
You must use a FileStream like in the following way:
// Make sure that you have added the System.IO namespace. using System.IO; // Specify a valid picture file path on your computer. FileStream fs; fs = new FileStream("C:\WINNT\Web\Wallpaper\Fly Away.jpg", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read); pictureBox1.Image = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(fs); fs.Close();
And remember: CATALONIA IS NOT SPAIN!
