ImageList Images Disappearing

Hi,

I have a ImageList containing 4 bitmaps attached to a UserControl
which acts as a Open/Close panel.

This panel, upon click, switches the image in a PictureBox control to
indicate the current panel status (Open/Close).

Problem is that in certain complex scenarios the images disappear!
from the ImageList. That is, when I call: imageList.Image s[1], I get
the exception: Specified argument was out of the range of valid
values.
Parameter name: '1' is not a valid value for 'index'. And when I check
the length of the Images collection it turns out to be zero :-(

I have a faint clue regarding the cause of this problem - it may have
something to do with the visibility of the UserControl containing the
ImageList.

Has anyone seen something like that before?

Solomon,

I am not quite sure, why ur imagelist behaves that way.

For time being you can do this,

try
{
//lets say you are trying to get a image here and for some reason
//it throws an execption
Image test = imageList.Image s[1];
}
catch(Exception e)
{
//when the exception is thrown, reload the imagelist from resource.
this.imageList1 .ImageStream =
((System.Window s.Forms.ImageLi stStreamer)(res ources.GetObjec t("imageList1.I m
ageStream")));

}

The images are populated into the imagelist during the initialization. .. if
you run any functions in the constructor before the imagelist has had a
chance to populate, then you may see this error.

I can't think of any other reason why you'd see this error at present...

One more quick question. I am creating a form that uses an ImageList control. I originally wanted to use a PictureBox control to display the images in the ImageList, but it doesn't seem possible. I found a work-around and used a Label to display, but I'm interested to know if the PictureBox can use an ImageList or not? It would seem to make sense... Thanks, Michael C.

I'm using a ListView control to display pictures similarly to how Windows Explorer displays pictures in "Thumbnails" view. The images are stored in an ImageList component. I would like to provide the ability to rotate the images and I'm having some issues. Basically, what I've tried is: lstViewImages.LargeImageList.Images.RotateFlip(RotateFlipType.Rotate90FlipNone); lstViewImages.Update();

We're using a System.Windows.Forms.ImageList to store a bunch of Images that I've loaded, and rendering each image in the ImageList during a draw loop. The process was running unusually slow and was causing memory spikes. After several hours we discovered that the ImageList.Images indexer is actually returning a copy of the added Images instead of simply returning a reference. Needless to say, we were a bit surprised and disturbed to...
