Save Memory with A Picture Box

Set the AutoRedraw property to True and the benefits and trade-offsinclude much faster repaints and some wasted memory. If your formis resizable, you waste a lot of memory, because the persistentbitmap used by AutoRedraw is as large as the maximum dimensionsof the form to reveal the hidden output when the user resizesor maximizes the window.
