Can I show bitmaps of file types other than BMP and JPG?
Yes. The PictureBox supports the display of images with the extensions BMP, JPG, ICO, EMF, WMF, and GIF. The PictureBox can even save images to a file. Although it can display many types of pictures, it can save files only to BMP format.
Is it possible to show pictures in other controls?
The picture box is the control to use when you are just displaying images. However, many other controls allow you to display pictures as part of the control. For instance, you can display an image on a button control by setting the button's Image property to a valid picture.
