You cannot copy and paste images into a Picture Control. However, you can read an image into a pixmap, which is a 2D array of data with each data point mapped to a color. To do this:
- Use the Read PNG File, Read JPEG File, or Read BMP File VIs from the Functions»Programming»Graphics & Sound»Graphics Formats palette.
- Then use the Draw Flattened Pixmap VI to display the image in a Picture Control. These VIs are located on the Functions»Programming»Graphics & Sound»Picture Functions palette.
