inserting images into richtextbox

hi,

i have a word processor with a richtextbox in the center of the screen. if
you paste an image into the richtextbox, it will appear. however, with my
openfiledialog, only some text will appear (the url of the image). here is my
code:

if(openfiledial og1.showdialog( )==dIALOGRESULT .OK)
{
RICHTEXTBOX1.TE XT=RICHTEXTBOX1 .TEXT+OPENFILED IALOG1.FILENAME ;
}

WHAT AM I DOING (sorry about the sudden caps lock!) wrong?

Alvo,

You're adding to the textbox the name of the file (url), not the contents!
You should use the Image.FromFile( ) or similar to generate an image from the
(contents of the) file, and then paste it into the textbox.

hi,

my code now is

if(openfiledial og.showdialog() ==dialogresult. ok)
{
richtextbox1.te xt=richtextbox1 .text+image.fro mfile(openfiled ialog1.filename );
}

this still diaplays some text like system.drawing. bitmap. what am i doing
wrong now? image.filename( ) doesnt work on its own, it needs some arguments
(openfiledialog .filename). i cant picture what i'm doing wrong

thanks in advance

The "Text" is type string. I am surprised if the code below even compiles,
but if it does, it will most likely be using the Bitmap's ToString()
implementation, which is just going to return the type name. Check this link
for a sample of how to really insert a non-text object:

Hi, I have a system that uploads images as BLOBs in a database. I also have a function that I use to resize uploaded images before saving as files. I would like to combine these two by resising the images before inserting them as BLOBs.

I have a richtextbox that I would like to fill with some lines, and they have to be aligned with tab stops. I think I have set the tab stops, but I can't find any info on how to tell the richtextbox to jump to the next tab. First, is this correct?: richTextBox1.SelectAll(); int tabStops = {4,8,12,16,20, 24}; richTextBox1.SelectionTabs = tabStops;
