ImageList(IContainer) ImageList(IContainer) ImageList(IContainer) ImageList(IContainer)

Initializes a new instance of the ImageList class, associating it with a container.

public ImageList ();
Public Sub New ()

Examples

The following code example demonstrates constructing an ImageList, adding images to the Images property, setting the ImageSize property, and using the Draw method. To run this example, place it in a form containing a button named Button1. The example assumes the existence of FeatherTexture.bmp and Gone Fishing.bmp at c:\Windows\. Change the example accordingly if the bitmaps do not exist on your system, or exist at another location.

internal:
   System::Windows::Forms::ImageList^ ImageList1;

private:

   // Create an ImageList Object, populate it, and display
   // the images it contains.
   void Button1_Click( System::Object^ /*sender*/, System::EventArgs^ /*e*/ )
   {
      
      // Construct the ImageList.
      ImageList1 = gcnew ImageList;
      
      // Set the ImageSize property to a larger size 
      // (the default is 16 x 16).
      ImageList1->ImageSize = System::Drawing::Size( 112, 112 );
      
      // Add two images to the list.
      ImageList1->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "c:\\windows\\FeatherTexture.bmp" ) );
      ImageList1->Images->Add( Image::FromFile( "C:\\windows\\Gone Fishing.bmp" ) );
      
      // Get a Graphics object from the form's handle.
      Graphics^ theGraphics = Graphics::FromHwnd( this->Handle );
      
      // Loop through the images in the list, drawing each image.
      for ( int count = 0; count < ImageList1->Images->Count; count++ )
      {

Remarks

The following table shows initial property values for an instance of ImageList.

Item Description
ColorDepth In the .NET Framework version 1.0, the default is Depth4Bit. In the .NET Framework version 1.1 or later, the default is Depth8Bit.
ImageSize The default is a Size object with a height and width of 16 by 16.
TransparentColor The default value is Transparent.

ImageList(IContainer) ImageList(IContainer) ImageList(IContainer) ImageList(IContainer)

Initializes a new instance of the ImageList class, associating it with a container.

public:
 ImageList(System::ComponentModel::IContainer ^ container);
public ImageList (System.ComponentModel.IContainer container);
new System.Windows.Forms.ImageList : System.ComponentModel.IContainer -> System.Windows.Forms.ImageList
Public Sub New (container As IContainer)

Parameters

container
IContainer IContainer IContainer IContainer

An object implementing IContainer to associate with this instance of ImageList.

Remarks

The ImageList constructor enables you to associate a ImageList with any Container object. By associating the ImageList like this, you hand over control of the lifetime of the ImageList to the Container. This can be useful if you use a number of components in your application, and want to dispose of all of them simultaneously. For example, if you associate a ToolTip, an ImageList, and a Timer with a Container, calling Dispose on the Container will force disposal of all of these components as well.
