Subject: Re: TImageScrollBox to bitmap?

Hi Hans,

If you don't know the format in advance, the easiest way will be to use a TImage; but it does not need to be displayed. Just created programmatically (don't drop it on a form), then use, Image->LoadFromFile(...).

Then to convert to a TBitmap, you create a TBitmap programmatically, and copy to it using:

Bitmap->Width = Image->Picture->Graphic.Width;
Bitmap->Height = Image->Picture->Graphic.Height;

Bitmap->Canvas->Draw( Image->Picture->Graphic, 0, 0 );

I'll will add to my todo list a LoadFileToBitmap and LoadStreamToBitmap.

Best regards,
