    Get image from http

    Hello,
    I havn't program C# for a while, but now i am starting up again.
    This code does work trough the compiler, but in real world it doesn't work, what's the problem?
    Code:
    #region using
    
    using System;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    using System.IO;
    using System.Net;
    
    #endregion
    
    public class MainsClass
    {
    	
    	public static void Main()
    	{
    		
    		new InterfaceClass();
    		
    	}
    	
    }
    
    public class InterfaceClass
    {
    	public InterfaceClass()
    	{
    		Form MainWindow = new Form();
    		PictureBox MainBox = new PictureBox();
    				
    		MainWindow.Text = "Startup Screen";
    		MainWindow.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen;
    		MainWindow.Width = 640;
    		MainWindow.Height = 480;
    		
    		WebRequest reg = WebRequest.Create("http://raceoffice.segel.aland.fi:81/record/current.jpg");
    		Stream stream = reg.GetResponse().GetResponseStream();
    		
    		Bitmap img = new Bitmap(stream);
    		
    		MainBox.BackgroundImage = img;
    		MainBox.Width = 600;
    		MainBox.Height = 450;
    		MainBox.SizeMode = System.Windows.Forms.PictureBoxSizeMode.StretchImage;
    		
    		MainBox.Visible = true;
    		MainWindow.ShowDialog();
    	}
    }
    Sorry about my bad english, i'm from finland (europe).

    Thanks,
    /Linus

    You didn't connect your picturebox to your form in any way, so I guess your form shows up without a picture. But that's just a wild guess, it would really help if you specify "doesn't work" a bit.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Yep, the picturebox doesn't show up, i have tried to connect it, but i don't really know how to do it, after one hour at google and a lot of self thinking, i posted here.

    How do i connect it to the form then?
