Displaying Excel chart image in Picturebox using VB.net

In the old days of VB6, an Excel chart image could be
pasted into a picture box with Clipboard using the
following commands.

xlApp.ActiveCha rt.ChartArea.Co py
Picture1.Pictur e = Clipboard.GetDa ta()
I having problems doing this in VB.net? I tried the code
shown below, but it does not work. Its a modified version
of a Clipboard-bitmap example I found on the Microsoft
support site. I believe Excel Chart images copied onto
Clipboard as a enchanced metafile.

xlApp.ActiveCha rt.ChartArea.Co py

Dim oDataObj As IDataObject =
System.Windows. Forms.Clipboard .GetDataObject( )

If Not System.Windows. Forms.Clipboard .GetDataObject( ) Is
Nothing Then

If oDataObj.GetDat aPresent
(System.Windows .Forms.DataForm ats.MetafilePic t) Then
PictureBox1.Ima ge = oDataObj.GetDat a
(DataFormats.En hancedMetafile, True)
End If

End If
Please help!
