We have an application that displays relatively large images (PNG,JPG,TIF) using an image control (1350x855) with Stretch:Isometric (required for our purposes). We have found that using PictureVal is superior to Picture with respect to quality and image resizing. However, there are performance issues with large images >= 3MBs. Mouse events (MouseDown, MouseEnter, MouseLeave, MouseUp) slow down dramatically. Also, hovering a grid header slows down. We have tried all the techniques for loading PictureVal and found FILETOSTR() to be the best.
We are thinking that there is no solution for this - that this is a possible memory leak that the Fox team didn't catch. However, we may be wrong. Any suggestions are welcome.
