Preview a picture box


Congratulations for the site.

I'm new and want to know if you can preview a picture box  ( *.par or *.asm)


If you what the code should I enter?

Thank you in advance

RE: Preview a picture box

You did not specify what programming language you use so it's hard to give an example. I can give you hints though.


Add a reference to sethumbnail.dll for thumbnail previews that you can show in a picture box. There is a SeThumbnailExtractor class and it has a GetThumbnail() method that will give you a handle to a bitmap that you can work with. For more complex previews, you can use the SEPreview.ocx as an ActiveX embedded object.

private void Get_Image(string sFileName)


int hImageSE;

Image imagePic;

SeThumbnailLib.SeThumbnailExtractor SEThumb=new SeThumbnailLib.SeThumbnailExtractor();

SEThumb.GetThumbnail(sFileName, out hImageSE);

IntPtr iPImage = new IntPtr(hImageSE);

imagePic = Image.FromHbitmap(iPImage);


// imagePic.Save(sFileName + ".png", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);

imagePic = null;

if (SEThumb != null) {


SEThumb = null;




Best Regards
