Bug - PictureBox Class ? Microsoft Feedback Solicited

Does Microsoft have a comment the possible bug on the
PictureBox Class. Here is the exchange I had on the
Experts-Exchange regarding this issue:

From Z_Beeblebrox:
I believe it is standard windows behavious to continue to
send mouse events to the window in which the mouse was
depressed until the mouse is released. A quick test in VB6
confirms this, but I don't have .Net here to test that,
but I don't see why it would be any different. So, in that
case, you don't need to do anything special at all to have
similar functionality as Word.

From Myself:
Thank-you Zaphod. However, and unfortunately I didn't
realize this when I posed the question, the difficulty is
that I had set my VB.NET Picturebox's BorderStyle to
Fixed3D (or FixedSingle) during the MouseDown event of the
PictureBox control. Doing this seems to stop the
PictureBox control from receiving mouse events unless the
mouse is within the boundaries of the PictureBox. "NOT"
doing this does give the standard functionality you

So what I want is to alter the appearance of the control
until the MouseUp event occurs. Setting the BorderStyle
property affects the transmission of mouse events. Is
there another approach?

From Z_Beeblebrox:
Wow, thats amazing. That's gotta be a bug. I did some
investigating and the control doesn't even receive mouse
move events from windows after you change the border
style. I tried with the panel control, and it doesn't have
this problem. Also, you don't get a mouse up notification
if you release the mouse button outside of the control.
Something is seriously screwed up with that control. Is
there a reason you need to use the PictureBox? You may
find the panel control will work for you if you are making
your own control, I am using right now for a control I am
making. Also, you may want to tell Microsoft about this,
its probably not something people try very often :P

I am migrating a VB 6 PictureBox control to VB.NET. In VB 6, this control modified its border style during the mouse down and up events to provide user feedback that it was selected. Once selected its position was adjusted in accordance with the mouse move events.

I've created a picturebox inside a panel control with autoscroll enabled. The picturebox is twice the size of the panel so scrollbars are always shown.

Hello, I try to create clone of a picturebox throught a inherited class of picturebox where I implemented Icloneable interface. So I use Memberwiseclone to partialy copy members and then adjust other properties but it's seems that memberwiseclone don't create a new picturebox, so I just change my first control. Is there someone have done the same thing with a picturebox or other control

Problem: The PictureBox display appears to have the image cut off. I.e., the image bottom does not display although the PictureBox has room for it. It occurred to me that what was displayed was the same size as the PictureBox was before it was resized. So I figured the bitmap was too small and tried to increase it's size as shown below. Two things: First it didn't fix the problem. Secondly, I'm not sure I've done it correctly and...

Dear All, This may sound like an elementary question but how do you implement scrollbars for the Picturebox control. Do I have to create my own code to do this or is there some property that I can set? Thank you very much for your time and consideration in this matter! Christopher Koeber

I have a picturebox on my VB.NET form. The picturebox size mode is set to stretched. I then load an image into that form and display it. 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)....

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.
