Load Image to PictureBox in Windows Mobile

Hi guys,
Another cool stuff, many guys, asking in MS forums, how load the image to picture box from the device directory. it's pretty easy, there have many ways.

1.loan image directly from the location
2. load the image from the memory stream.

So here code for you

1.
pictureBox.Image = new Bitmap (“Full.Path.To.Bitmpap.”);

2.
private void LoadImage(string filePath)
{
using (FileStream reader = new FileStream(filePath, FileMode.Open))
{
byte[] data = new byte[reader.Length];
reader.Read(data, 0, (int)reader.Length);
using (MemoryStream memory = new MemoryStream(data))
{
pictureBox1.Image = new Bitmap(memory);
pictureBox1.SizeMode = PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage;
}
}
}

Thank you
