The following code example demonstrates how to obtain a new bitmap using the FromFile method. It also demonstrates a TextureBrush.

This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form containing a button named Button2. Paste the code into the form and associate the Button2_Click method with the button's Click event.

private void Button2_Click(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    try
    {
        Bitmap image1 = (Bitmap) Image.FromFile(@"C:\Documents and Settings\" +
            @"All Users\Documents\My Music\music.bmp", true);

        TextureBrush texture = new TextureBrush(image1);
        texture.WrapMode = System.Drawing.Drawing2D.WrapMode.Tile;
        Graphics formGraphics = this.CreateGraphics();
        formGraphics.FillEllipse(texture, 
            new RectangleF(90.0F, 110.0F, 100, 100));
        formGraphics.Dispose();

    }
    catch(System.IO.FileNotFoundException)
    {
        MessageBox.Show("There was an error opening the bitmap." +
            "Please check the path.");
    }

}

private void button2_Click(Object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    try {
        Bitmap image1 = ((Bitmap)(Image.FromFile(
            "C:\\Documents and Settings\\"  
            + "All Users\\Documents\\My Music\\music.bmp", true)));
        TextureBrush texture = new TextureBrush(image1);

        texture.set_WrapMode(System.Drawing.Drawing2D.WrapMode.Tile);

        Graphics formGraphics = this.CreateGraphics();

        formGraphics.FillEllipse(texture, new RectangleF(90, 110, 100,100));
        formGraphics.Dispose();
    }
    catch (System.IO.FileNotFoundException exp) {
        MessageBox.Show(("There was an error opening the bitmap."  
            + "Please check the path."));
    }
} //button2_Click
