Hi all, I am creating an application on Visual Basic 2008 to convert
any image into icon. I have written code (see below) which works
fine. It converts any image to icon in specified size. But the
problem is that when I try to use that icon I get error message
saying "invalid image property" or "invalid image" etc. Please can
any friend tell me that what amendments i need in my code below to
achive my objective. help in shape of code will be much appriciated.


Dim imageFinal As System.Drawing.Image = Nothing
Dim g As System.Drawing.Graphics = Nothing
imageFinal = New System.Drawing.Bitmap(64, 64)
g = System.Drawing.Graphics.FromImage(imageFinal)
Dim destRect As New System.Drawing.Rectangle(0, 0, 64, 64)
Dim srcRect As New System.Drawing.Rectangle(0, 0,
PictureBox1.Image.Width, PictureBox1.Image.Height)
g.InterpolationMode = Drawing2D.InterpolationMode.HighQualityBicubic
g.DrawImage(PictureBox1.Image, destRect, srcRect,
System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Pixel)
imageFinal.Save(RichTextBox2.Text & "\" & RichTextBox3.Text & ".ico",
System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Icon)
MsgBox("Image has been converted", MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Done!")

What does "use" mean? Which line fails? The code below works if
an image has been assigned to picturebox1.image.

....Well, I guess the problem is described here:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q316563

So I suggest to explicitly create an Icon object by calling
- System.Drawing.Bitmap.GetHicon
- System.Drawing.Icon.FromHandle
- System.Drawing.Icon.Save

Optionally create the Icon from an image returned from the
original image's GetThumbnailImage method.

Sorry, you already wrote that it works fine for you, too.

- System.Drawing.Icon.Save

Hi Armin. Thanks for replying. I have used above code lines which
you mentioned in your answer in my another code (see below) as well,
but I get two problems. One that I loose image actual colours and
graphics and two the code below don't genrate or save 16 x 16 icons
nicely as I get balck background. I am simply trying to create icons
which should look exactly the same of image from which its been
created but in 16 x 16 , 32 x 32 , 24 x 24 , 48 x 48 and 64 x 64
sizes. Any suggestions ?

Dim img As New Bitmap(PictureBox1.Image, 32, 32)
Dim g As Graphics = Graphics.FromImage(img)
g.InterpolationMode = Drawing2D.InterpolationMode.HighQualityBicubic
g.DrawImage(img, 0, 0)
Dim Hicon As IntPtr = img.GetHicon
Dim newicon As Icon = System.Drawing.Icon.FromHandle(Hicon)
Dim fpth As New IO.FileStream(RichTextBox2.Text & "\" &
RichTextBox3.Text & ".ico", IO.FileMode.Create)
newicon.Save(fpth)
newicon.Dispose()
MsgBox("Image has been converted", MsgBoxStyle.Information, "Done!")
