This is my code to retreive a image from a database, for some reason the image.fromfile... keeps the file open after i load it, so i can''t delete it. If i can''t delete it (And because its still open) i can''t load hte next image from the database.
            If rcs.Fields("sig").Value Is System.DBNull.Value Then
                PictureBox1.Image = Nothing
                Exit Sub
            End If

            strStream.Write(rcs.Fields("sig").Value)


            strStream.SaveToFile("C:\sTemp.bmp", ADODB.SaveOptionsEnum.adSaveCreateOverWrite)
            strStream.Close()

            PictureBox1.Image = Image.FromFile("C:\sTemp.bmp")

            Kill("c:\stemp.bmp")
Its in vb.net, Please help!, Thanks.

Heh, uh, why are you creating the temporary file in the first place? Why not just set the image from the stream directly?


How appropriate. You fight like a cow.
