Getting Image File Information

02-11-2005, 08:44 PM
I'm back with more interesting questions! :huh: :p

I have a webbrowser control navigating to a certain image in my program. I then click & drag this image into a Rich Text Box control. So there I have my image in the browser and in the RTB. Now the tough question: How do I figure out where the image's located on the internet?. I hope this is possible, if not is there any work-arounds into getting the file's location on the internet?

Thanks in advanced!

If you're navigating to the image in the webbrowser, wouldn't the path be stored in the LocationURL property?

Well see, I guess I should have said that I'm really navigating to a .html page with the image on it....

Is there always a single image on the webpage? If so, you could search the HTML for an occurence of "src=" after an "<img" tag.

Well I did think about doing that but I'm going to have a lot of images on the html page. so I guess it -would- work if I could get the image's file name out of it in the RTB but I'm not sure if that's possible...

so can you get an image's original name & format from a copied image from the internet?
