AxHost.GetPictureFromIPicture Method

Returns an Image corresponding to the specified OLE IPicture object.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

protected static Image GetPictureFromIPicture(
	Object picture


Type: System.Object
The IPicture to convert.

Return Value

Type: System.Drawing.Image
An Image representing the IPicture.

You can use this method to convert IPictureDisp objects in addition to IPicture objects. This works because the IPictureDisp OLE interface is a subset of the IPicture interface. Converting IPictureDisp objects with this method is necessary because the GetPictureFromIPictureDisp does not work correctly at this time.
