Do you know how to open TGA fies to display in PictureBox?

I have browsed the Net and found some library called DevIL which was ported
to C# by some fellow but apparantly while itloads some tga files many times
it fails, not sure why- no errors thrown just no image displayed in my
PictureBox. And this is using the reference app that they made as well.

Do you know any other library out there (free) that does this?

Investigating this more, it does not seem to be a problem with the library
itself. I think so because I can use the library's load function to load the
file from disk into a Bitmap object and then I can use the library's save
function to save it to a new location, and it works. I can open the saved
file through a commercial image viewer just fine.
So it seems to be a probem with PictureBox? Are there some
setting/configuration to PictureBox that I may try to use to get this image
to display ? Are there other .NET controls to display pictures?

I am creating PictureBox controls at runtime in code and not at design time. These controls do get created and appear. These controls have a form as their container. Not all of the controls I create are shown at the same. The logic of my code is to sometimes show certain controls while hiding others and then later on reversing this. For some very strange reason, at some point when I want to display a control that was previously...

Hi, all, I have a form which has a picturebox control on the top and several buttons on the bottom. I want to change the form size smaller at run time and let all buttons display overlap the image of the picturebox. But when I was making the form smaller, the buttons were covered by the image. How to show the buttons overlap the picturebox? Thanks!

Hello, Not sure if anyone else has seen this bug, but I have a form where the entire form is covered with a picturebox. The picturebox has a mouseup event. I also have an open file dialog for loading images into the picturebox. If you double click the file you want to open in the open file dialog, it somehow interperets one of the clicks as a mouseup on the picturebox and fires the mouseup event for the picturebox. How can I get...

I have a picture (jpg) displaying in a picture box but I find that the file handle is still open to the image on disk. I think I need the following to happen 1. Load image from file on disk 2. Copy the loaded image to another object. 3. Close the file on disk 4. Display the image in the picture box as a thumbnail. 5. Allow user to rotate image if necessary by reloading the file

Using VS2005 with .NET Framework 2.0 I'm using the the System.Windows.Forms.PictureBox to display a bitmap when the PictureBox.SizeMode is PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage The PictureBox can be resized by the user. When the PictureBox size is less then the bitmap size then the bitmap is resized by the PictureBox to a smaller size to fit the PictureBox size. My question is: What method is used to downsize the bitmap?
