Tech Note 03h: Image Object

For more information on this control, see Microsoft's documentation at htm/controls_1.asp

This control displays a graphic from a bitmap file. It uses fewer system resources and repaints faster than a PictureBox, but it supports only a subset of PictureBox's properties, events, and methods. Both controls support bitmap picture formats.


The Microsoft documents list visible, zOrder and Refresh as properties or methods for this object. As far as we can tell, they don't work.

In most cases, PictureBox (and especially S309PictureBox) will be a better choice than Image.
