Can it be set to any color?   Or just the ones that pop up on intellisense? 

If I can change it to any color, how can I do that ?

Thanks very much!

Hi there,


 I am doing one task on asp.net graphics. i would like to a form that let the user choose the color code from the color picker.

inside my backend code, i can get the color code and convert to the system.drawing.color.



Dim col As System.Drawing.Color = System.Drawing.ColorTranslator.FromHtml("#9932CC")

 Dim Brush As New SolidBrush(col)


but i have some problem in make this col object to alpha color. as i know the .net code that make the system color to become alpha is wrote as like tat :

gr.DrawString(strWatermarkText, wmFont, New SolidBrush(Color.FromArgb(8, 0, 0, 0)), x, y)


May someone share me how to make the color input from form to become alpha color? thanx in advanced. hope to hear from you all soon 


System.Drawing.Image.Fromfile is not working


I am trying to get the height and width of the image dynamically.  The reason is I am loading multiple images using code, where the image name is from the database. 

Here is my code:

in the ascx page, I have an asp image

<asp:image id="imgInfo" runat="server" /> 


In the code behind

string ImagePath = "~/products/img/" + dataviewImgInfo[0]["imgName"].ToString();

System.Drawing Image imgProd = System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(ImagePath);

if(imgProd.Height > 200)

imgInfo.Height = 100;




imgInfo.Height = 200



WHen I run this page I am getting the folloiwng error

EventType clr20r3, P1 devenv.exe, P2 9.0.30729.1, P3 488f2b50, P4 system.drawing, P5, P6 488

Hi,I am facing a strange issue in Visual Studio 2008 Standard SP1, when using WPF Designer (even without using the Designer tab, only XAML tab). Visual Studio crashes very often, without any apparent reason, and in various ways, for example: exits instantly, the IDE displays corrupted UI, when begining compiling it stops responding.There are two new Event Log entries after this: EventType clr20r3, P1 devenv.exe, P2 9.0.30729.1, P3 488f2b50, P4 system.drawing, P5, P6 4889dec2, P7 33d, P8 18, P9 system.outofmemoryexception, P10 NIL. .NET Runtime version 2.0.50727.3053 - Fatal Execution Engine Error (7A2E0F92) (0)Worth mentioning:- computer has Windows XP SP3 with the latest updates installed- it crashes on other computer types too- the project has quite a large number of UserControls - it appears that if opening a XAML file with the XML editor instead, it works ok- on other WPF projects it also works okDoes anyone have an ideea why is this happening and solutions? Thanks

Converting System.Windows.Media to System.Drawing objects

XmlSerializer: Serialize an array of System.Drawing.Color

Ok,  here is my problem... I am building a UI configuration tool that utiliizes a PropertyGrid.  One of the properties is a indexed list of Colors contained in an array: CategoryAttribute("Style"), DisplayName("Data Set Colors"), DescriptionAttribute(""), XmlArray("SetColors"), XmlArrayItem(ElementName="Color",Type=typeof(SColor))] public Color[] SetColors { get; set; } The beauty of the PropertyGrid is it knows how to handle this Poperty and properly handles array and list of Colors. BUT...   As we already know in order to serialize a Color,  we have to use a surrigate property,  which is very unfortunate, and I fear is one of those little thing MS just overlooked.  (I understand it is actually a structure and not a class and has not default properties from which to get type info from.) I am really amazed that when I do serialize the class,  the XML is soooo  close to what I need,  its just missing the actual color value data: <AppGridColumnConfig xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema"> <Name>Label</Name> <SetColors> <Color /> <Color /> <Color /> </SetColors> <IsDefaultEditable>false</IsDefaultEditable> <IsDirtyCheck&

First Steps with VS2010 RC - System.Drawing; missing?

I'm a little confused! I was curious about the new VS2010 RC and as I wanted to start with a new Software Project I  wanted to give it a try. 1. Installation troubble with Silverlight but VS2010 loads without errors. 2. Now I wanted to try out this things with a full aero window and found a nice and simple code snipplet on the MSDN .NET FW4 Extend Glass Frame Into a WPF Application So I made this short changes in my first source code and I'm getting the strange message: Error    1    The type or namespace name 'Drawing' does not exist in the namespace 'System' (are you missing an assembly reference?)    D:\Projekte\Selfmade\Software\CAS_Information\CAS_Information\MainWindow.xaml.cs    19    14    CAS_Information I found a lot of c# code with a using System.Drawing; but on my installation I dont have such a namespace. What the heck is wrong there?   Windows 7 x64 - VS2010 RC

System.Drawing.Image.FromFile crashes for tiff files on 64bit system


The following pice of code runs fine on my development machine (win7, 32bit) but ends with Exception on the server (Win2008R2, 64bit).


        static void Main(string[] args)


            Image image = Image.FromFile(args[0]);





The exception will be thrown for TIFF files (from other sources) but ie not for PNG files.

I was wondering why the test program above works fine on my Win 32bit machine with .NET 4 but not on my 64bit machine with .NET 4.

Any help appreciated.

'System.Drawing.ToolboxBitmapAttribute' threw an exception. .... since MS won't fix it, does anyo


I'm hosting a few .net sites, some collapse with this error on an almost daily basis. I've moved the sites between servers, but sites on all the servers seem to be affected, so it is not just a bad install.

This problem is acknowledged by MS and they have a fix here:


But they don't provide the fix they talk about.

Does anyone have any way to resolve this that does not need Microsoft (since Microsoft clearly aren't bothered to fix it)?

Bitmap.SetResolution does nothing on Windows 7. It works fine on XP and Vista. This code demonstrates the problem:


            foreach (string file in Directory.GetFiles(@"C:\Temp\input"))


                string newFile = "";

                using (var bitmap = (Bitmap)Image.FromFile(file))


                    bitmap.SetResolution(200, 200);

                    newFile = Path.Combine(@"C:\Temp\output", Path.GetFileName(file));

                    bitmap.Save(newFile, ImageFormat.Png);


                using (Image image = Image.FromFile(newFile))

I am getting an ArgumentException: Parameter is not valid.

Does anyone know what's wrong with my code here?

        Int32 offset = 78;

        MemoryStream memStream = new MemoryStream();

        memStream.Write(data, offset, data.Length - offset);

        System.Drawing.Image img = System.Drawing.Image.FromStream(memStream);

        img.Save(Server.MapPath("image.jpg"), System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);


        Image1.ImageUrl = Server.MapPath("image.jpg");


        ImgService obj = new ImgService();

        byte[] data = obj.ShowImg(6);
