Possible Library Conflict -- 2019-10-10-163010

All --

I am working on an app that has been working well.

I am attempting to add

        'CONNECT WITH THE CAMERA CAPTURE COMMANDS
        With Capture.CaptureCommands.Preview(Nothing)

                'If the PREVIEW is ON
                If (.previewon = True) _
                    Then

                        'CHANGE THE CAMERA STATUS TRAFFIC SIGNAL
                        pictureBox_LivePreviewTraffic.BackgroundImage  = _
                            Image.FromFile( MacroDir & "\Traffic-Grn.jpg" )

                    Else

                        'CHANGE THE CAMERA STATUS TRAFFIC SIGNAL
                        pictureBox_LivePreviewTraffic.BackgroundImage  = _
                            Image.FromFile( MacroDir & "\Traffic-Red.jpg" )

                    End If

            End With
to the APP.

I find to support the

    IMAGE.FROMFILE COMMAND

that I have to add

    Imports System.Drawing

to the .IPP FILE for the PROJECT.

Unfortunately this seems to interfere with the

    ANCHOR =

line that is commented out in the code below.
        With Adjust.ImageCommands.Canvas(Nothing)
'            .Anchor = Image.CanvasAnchor.TopLeft
            .Size = New System.Drawing.Size(MyImageWidth,MyImageHeight+(MyImageHeight*.2))
            .Background = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(CType(255, Byte),CType(255, Byte),CType(255, Byte))
            .AverageBackground = False
            .Visible = True
            .Run(doc1, image2)
        End With
I was able to patch this up with

        'ADJUST THE CANVAS SIZE AND LEARN THE IMAGE INFO FOR THE NEW IMAGE
        Dim image2
        With Adjust.ImageCommands.Canvas(Nothing)
'            .Anchor = Image.CanvasAnchor.TopLeft
            .Anchor = 0
            .Size = New System.Drawing.Size(MyImageWidth,MyImageHeight+(MyImageHeight*.2))
            .Background = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(CType(255, Byte),CType(255, Byte),CType(255, Byte))
            .AverageBackground = False
            .Visible = True
            .Run(doc1, image2)
        End With
because of the info within



Everything is working now but I am wondering if there is a better way to address / resolve what seems to be a conflict regarding the IMAGE in

.Anchor = Image.CanvasAnchor.TopLeft

that seems to be broken by

    Imports System.Drawing

and the IMAGE in

Image.FromFile( MacroDir & "\Traffic-Grn.jpg" )

that is supported by

    Imports System.Drawing

Thanks.

    Hi Matt,

    This is a namespace conflict, when the same property exists in different namespaces. One of the solutions to fix that is to use full namespace definition, e.g. "System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(...)" instead of adding "Imports  System.Drawing".
