Q. Can I show bitmaps of file types other than BMP, JPG, and PNG?
A. Yes. PictureBox supports the display of images with the extensions BMP, JPG, ICO, EMF, WMF, PNG, and GIF. PictureBox can even save images to a file using any of the supported file types.
Q. Is it possible to show pictures in other controls?
A. PictureBox 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.
