Selecting a region in a picturebox


I want to crop a picture in a picturebox by allowing the user to select

There is nothing out of the box that will do this. Rather, you should
create a control which will do this for you, and handle the mouse button

As the user moves the mouse over the form, I want to get and display (in the status bar) the image coordinates of the mouse location. However, if I use the picturebox's MouseMove event, I am getting the coordinates of the mouse over the PICTUREBOX, not the actual image underneath that (which is stretched)....

I'm working on a Windows application (VS 2005) that I will need to be able to select images I've added to a FlowLayoutPannel. I was attempting to select the various PictureBoxes and noticed that it wasn't working. Reading through the MSDN to find out why, I ran across the following: "The PictureBox is not a selectable control, which means that it cannot receive input focus." This obviously puts a damper on the project. Is there any...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
