I need to get the width and height of a GIF image through code. I need this
info so that I can set the width and height properties of Image and
ImageButton objects. System.IO.File. GetAttributes(i magelocation) only seem
to return properties that all files have, which does not include width and
height. How can I get this info? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Load the file using 'Image.LoadFrom ' and check the 'Image' object's 'Height'
and 'Width' properties.

getting image size when loading gif in page?

by: abrtlt |last post by:

I am using Ajax with a PHP script to obtain the name of gif files from a MySQL database. Javascript then embeds the actual file in the web page, thus displaying the image on the fly. For precise positioning, I would like to know the gif image size. Is there a way to obtain it using Javascript or otherwise? (I know the size is indeed contained in the gif format, as I can see it with a binary editor...) Thanks! Andrew

getting "afterimages" when moving layers in Firefox

I'm using a javascript "slide" function to move a <div> layer in 10 pixel increments from one location on a page to another. The layer contains a GIF image.

The easy way to turn off automatic updates for Windows 10/11

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
