I am trying to load an image from a OpenFile dialouge box, into a fixed size paint box, and am prooving very uncessessful.
I have managed to do exactly the same thing to load to a TImage structure, by using the following code.
if (!dlgOpenImage -> Execute()) return;
Which works fine, however when I try and use similar strategy for a TPaintBox it doens't want to know.
This is what I am currently working with
void __fastcall TfrmMain::Fi1Click(TObject *Sender)
//bool LoadImage = NULL;
LoadImage = new Graphics::TBitmap;
if (!dlgOpen->Execute()) return;
TRect rect(0,0, LoadImagemage->Width, LoadImage->Height);
where pbxClientArea is the destination paint box for the image to be loaded. and LoadImage is to be a residiual location for the dlgOpen file to be stored untill it is transfered to the paint box.
I dont know if i am going the correct way around it. Probably not.
