If I create a blank report, add a picturebox control, set the value to point to a JPG file (logo in this case) and then try to preview either in VS or with a test page using the viewer control, I get this error (numerous times):

Code generation for property 'Value' failed. A generic error occuered in GDI+.

Anybody have any ideas? The error was discovered on a more complex report but in testing it I discovered I could reproduce it with a blank/empty report. Any help or sugestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

So, I saved the JPG to a PNG file format and the error does NOT occur, however, the PNG file does not react appropriately to the "sizing" property. In the designer it does, but when viewing it seems to ignore the property....???

Hi Joe Cody,

As we were unable to reproduce such problem on our end, we would appreciate if you provide us with the problematic image (both JPG and PNG) and we would be able to advise you once we investigate what is causing the problem.

Best wishes,

Thanks for the response...it seems the problem is with the JPG file itself. We converted it to GIF as a test using GIMP and it displayed properly in the picturebox.

Thanks again

Hi, I have same problem. I loading .jpg image from MSSQL database "image column" data and I have GDI+ Error.. It works for .png images and when I set .jpg image manually from local file. Any ideas?

Thanks for Your help.


byte[] bimg = ... loaded from DB
Image img = null;
using(MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream(bimg))
{
img = Image.FromStream(ms);
}
pictureBox.Value = img; //GDI+ error

ok, I found a solution to the problem. The solution described here:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=814675

Image CopyImage(Image original)
{
    Image ret = new Bitmap(original.Width, original.Height);
    using(Graphics g = Graphics.FromImage(ret))
    {
        g.DrawImage(original, 0, 0, original.Width, original.Height);
        g.Save();
    }
    return ret;
}
 
And finally....
 
pictureBox.Value = CopyImage(img);


But... I have a problem with copying text
from VS, notepad etc. to Reply Form...
Font size is veeerrry small (in Chrome)
