Icon Constructor (Icon, Int32, Int32)

Icon Constructor (Icon, Int32, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the Icon class and attempts to find a version of the icon that matches the requested size.

Namespace:  System.Drawing
Assembly:  System.Drawing (in System.Drawing.dll)

Public Sub New ( _
	original As Icon, _
	width As Integer, _
	height As Integer _


Type: System.Drawing.Icon

The icon to load the different size from.

Type: System.Int32

The width of the new icon.

Type: System.Int32

The height of the new icon.


The original parameter is Nothing.

If a version cannot be found that exactly matches the size, the closest match is used. If the original parameter is an Icon that has a single size, this method only creates a duplicate icon. Use the stretching capabilities of the DrawImage method to resize the icon.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the ToBitmap method. This example is designed to be used with Windows Forms. Create a form and paste the following code into it. Call the IconToBitmap method in the form's Paint event handler, passing e as PaintEventArgs.

Private Sub IconToBitmap(ByVal e As PaintEventArgs)

    ' Construct an Icon. 
    Dim icon1 As New Icon(SystemIcons.Exclamation, 40, 40)

    ' Call ToBitmap to convert it. 
    Dim bmp As Bitmap = icon1.ToBitmap()

    ' Draw the bitmap.
    e.Graphics.DrawImage(bmp, New Point(30, 30))
End Sub
