private void IconToBitmap(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Construct an Icon.
    Icon icon1 = new Icon(SystemIcons.Exclamation, 40, 40);

    // Call ToBitmap to convert it.
    Bitmap bmp = icon1.ToBitmap();

    // Draw the bitmap.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(bmp, new Point(30, 30));
}

private void IconToBitmap(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Construct an Icon.
    Icon icon1 = new Icon(SystemIcons.get_Exclamation(), 40, 40);

    // Call ToBitmap to convert it.
    Bitmap bmp = icon1.ToBitmap();

    // Draw the bitmap.
    e.get_Graphics().DrawImage(bmp, new Point(30, 30));
} //IconToBitmap
