    Here's code I use to do the task in a Windows form, but you should be able
    to adapt it:



    Dim wReq As System.Net.HttpWebRequest

    wReq = WebRequest.Create(sURL)

    Dim wResp As WebResponse = wReq.GetResponse

    picImage.Image = New Bitmap(wResp.GetResponseStream)

    What type of object is picImage? I need to have about 20 thumbnails
    presented. I was going to use a DataList to do such. I would put an
    ImageButton into the DataList, but it only supports an ImageUrl method.
    There is no way of giving it an Image object.
