The following code example demonstrates using the FileNames property, handling the FileOk event and using the Application.DoEvents method. When the example runs, a user can select graphics files from an OpenFileDialog object. The selected files are displayed in the form. The Application.DoEvents method forces a repaint of the form for each graphics file opened. To run this example paste the following code in a form containing a PictureBox named PictureBox1, an OpenFileDialog named OpenFileDialog1, and a Button named fileButton. Call the InitializePictureBox and InitializeOpenFileDialog methods from the form's constructor or Load method. When the example is running, display the dialog box by clicking the button.
