    Question Printing from a Picturebox

    Good Afternoon All,

    I have 2 pictureboxes. Pb1 has data in it and Pb2 is used to write data on it using a mouse or pen, it's transparent so you can add notes.

    What I'm wanting to do is once a report is loaded into the Pb's I want to write that data in the pb's to a file. Sometimes there can be many pages to this report. So if there are 10 pages, I want all 10 images written to one file. I hope this makes sense!

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    It would be something like
    Code:
    PictureBox1.Image.Save("C:\NewFileName.jpg", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg)
    Naturally, you can choose any image format available...I used jpeg as an example.

    How do I merge if you will the 2 pictureboxes into one? When looking at the form I'll see what looks like one report, but it's really 2 pb's displaying this one report. The code above will copy the contents of one of the pb but not both, how do I write both to one file?

    Probably the easiest way would be to create two files and then merge then into one.
