Property Value

Image object containing the picture for the edit control

Some controls can display pictures in layers. The first layer consists of a foreground picture, next comes the content of the control, such as text and a picture, then comes the background picture, and finally, the background color of the control.

Set this property to specify the picture for the content layer. Set the ForegroundImage property to specify the foreground picture layer. Set the BackgroundImage property to specify the background picture layer.

This property is available at run time only.


Specify the alignment for the contents in an element using the AlignHorz property.

You can work with the positioning of the picture by setting the MarginTop, MarginBottom, MarginLeft, and MarginRight properties. These properties leave space between the edge of the picture and the edges of the control.

You can also set the PictureMargin property to specify the margin to use between the picture and the text in the control.

Specify the orientation of the picture by setting the PictureOrientation property.

You can use the various pictures' transparency colors feature to display portions of the underlying content and other pictures in the element. For the picture layer, set the PictureTransparencyColor property.

Note: If the computer is in 256-color mode and the element displays a picture and a foreground picture that have different palettes, the palette for the foreground picture will override the palette for the picture.

If the application changes the picture, the PictureChanged event occurs.

This example shows the use of this property with related settings of text and a picture in the same control.
control.Text = "Alignment test";
control.Picture  = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile("d:\mail16A.ico")
control.PictureMargin = 25
control.PictureOrientation = FarPoint.Win.PictureOrientation.PictureRotate90;
control.PictureTransparencyColor = Color.Blue;
control.AlignText = FarPoint.Win.TextAlign.TextLeftPictRight;
control.TextOrientation = FarPoint.Win.TextOrientation.TextTopDown;
control.Text = "Alignment test"
control.Picture = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile("d:\mail16A.ico")
control.PictureMargin = 25
control.PictureOrientation = FarPoint.Win.PictureOrientation.PictureRotate90
control.PictureTransparencyColor = Color.Blue
control.AlignText = FarPoint.Win.TextAlign.TextLeftPictRight
control.TextOrientation = FarPoint.Win.TextOrientation.TextTopDown
