The PaintPicture method syntax has these parts:
object: Optional. An object expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list. If object is omitted, the Form object with the focus is assumed to be object.
Picture: Required. The source of the graphic to be drawn onto object. Must be the Picture property of a Form or PictureBox.
x1, y1: Required. Single-precision values indicating the destination coordinates (x-axis and y-axis) on object for picture to be drawn. The ScaleMode property of object determines the unit of measure used.
Width1: Optional. Single-precision value indicating the destination width of picture. The ScaleMode property of object determines the unit of measure used. If the destination width is larger or smaller than the source width (width2), picture is stretched or compressed to fit. If omitted, the source width is used.
Height1: Optional. Single-precision value indicating the destination height of picture. The ScaleMode property of object determines the unit of measure used. If the destination height is larger or smaller than the source height (height2), picture is stretched or compressed to fit. If omitted, the source height is used.
After all this it might not take that much to add this funtionability to a picturebox...
I've used the Paintpicture method to do the Zoom on a Picturebox Control..
The zoom worked better than i expected.. (but going higher than about 5* is not recomended, It's a bit ikky up there..)
I have not completed adding in the code to make the Zoom work with the Crops.
So if you crop then zoom, the picture snaps to the original uncropped pic..
Will add this tomorrow, It's getting a bit late and i got a long work day ahead, so i need to get some sleep..
----- Edit -----
Worked on it this morning and sorted it all out .. the zoom works with only picturebox's.. and is fully integrated with the crop application..
i used a lot of variables and UDT's to enable this.. basically the original pic stays in the background, untouched.. a dummy pic shows the zoom, gets the selection for crop and apply's it to the original pic in the correct proportion..
okay - enough of that...
IT WORKS... try it...
----- REEDIT -----
Newer file on later post...
