Hello

I have a dynamically loaded textboxcontrol to which I attach an image from a file as background image.

At some point I need to remove the textboxcontrol from the RadPanel into which it has been added and I need to delete the image file used as background image

The File.delete(imagefilename) generates an error telling the it cannot delete the file because it is in use by another process.

I have tried to set the backgroundimage to nothing before the file delete but it does not help

Does anyone know how can I release the file ?

Thanks in advance

Pierre-Jean

Hi Pierre,

Make sure that the stream used for file opening is disposed of. Dispose of the image object as well:
var image = Image.FromFile(@"C:\img\delete.png");
image.Dispose();

I hope this will be useful. Let me know if you have additional questions.

Regards,
