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 Sub Button2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button2.Click
    Try 
        Dim image1 As Bitmap = _
            CType(Image.FromFile("C:\Documents and Settings\" _
            & "All Users\Documents\My Music\music.bmp", True), Bitmap)

        Dim texture As New TextureBrush(image1)
        texture.WrapMode = Drawing2D.WrapMode.Tile
        Dim formGraphics As Graphics = Me.CreateGraphics()
        formGraphics.FillEllipse(texture, _
            New RectangleF(90.0F, 110.0F, 100, 100))
        formGraphics.Dispose()

    Catch ex As System.IO.FileNotFoundException
        MessageBox.Show("There was an error opening the bitmap." _
            & "Please check the path.")
    End Try 

End Sub
