Reading Bitmap Files

Question:
I need to read and analyze the *.bmp file. How I can do it without PictureBox?

Answer:
In order to open the file, you need to use the Open statement. The Open statement is documented in your help file and can open a variety of file types, one of which is a binary file like the BMP format.

To use the Open statement, use the following code:

Open "filename.ext" For Binary As #1
That will open a file as file number 1. You can then use the Read statement to look at the contents of the file.
