hi i have a set of bitmaps in an array.
and i want to add it to a imagelist so that i can show those images in my
imageList2.Imag es.Add (Image.FromHbit map (picture.Bitmap )); //cant use this
gives me an error

do i need to convert from bitmap to a memory stream?

The following is an exact example which works:

Image i = (Image)Bitmap.F romFile(@"C:\WI NDOWS\blue lace 16.bmp");
ImageList il = new ImageList();

il.Images.Add(i );

TreeView tv = new TreeView();

tv.ImageList = il;
tv.Nodes.Add("r oot");
tv.Nodes[0].ImageIndex = 0; //set the image to the first item

this.Controls.A dd(tv);

There is ImageList.Image Size property that should correspond with
size of images. If it isn't then images will be resized (with
possible loss of quality).
imageList2.Imag es.Add (Image.FromHbit map (picture.Bitmap )); //cant use this
gives me an error
I believe that your picture.Bitmap does not returns IntPtr.
ImageList.Image Collection.Add method takes "Image" or "Icon" parameter.

try this:

Bitmap[] bmpArray; // your array of bitmaps

// ... bmpArray fill

for(int i=0; i<bmpArray.Leng th; i++) {
imageList2.Imag es.Add(bmpArray[i]);

If my sample will not do what you want or throws exception
then send feedback with possible StackTrace.

I think your approach is a little bit overcomplicated . The Add method
accepts a System.Drawing. Image, and System.Drawing. Bitmap is inherited from
System.Drawing. Image. So it should be sufficient to use the following code
(given the Bitmap property returns an instance of System.Drawing. Bitmap):

imageList2.Imag es.Add (picture.Bitmap );

I want to have a TreeView that shows an image on some items, but not all. Basically, if a certain condition is true, a caution icon is placed next to the treeview item. The problem is that, by adding a ImageList to the TreeView, the ImageIndex property of the items in the TreeView defaults to 0. I could put a blank icon in the ImageList and make it the 0 index image, however, this makes an ugly space. Would I have to create my own...

Hello, I knew how to use the treeview under VB6. After migrating to .NET, well, I'm lost. I try to add a new node, either to the same level or as a child to a selected node in the treeview. However, either it only add it to the root level or it only add it on level below, doesn't matter what I select. And in some case, I just get an exception.

I'm building a web application that is analogous to the Windows XP file explorer in function.

The DataGrid displays both the items and the nodes from the TreeView. Using the explorer analogy this means the TreeView shows folders, and the DataGrid folders...

Hi All, I have a form that displays hierarchical categories in a treeview. Ok so far so good. What I was to do is have users be able to select a node in the treeview as part of filling out the form. I only want to allow single selection, so using checkboxes is out of the question. It works as is, but it makes the form very cumbersome if every time that a user selects a node, the whole page has to reload. Is there a way to have a node...
