    Let's say, ShowBitmap

    Private Sub ShowBitmap

    Dim HorizantalLimit As Integer
    Dim VerticalLimit As Integer
    Dim ii As Integer
    Dim jj As Integer

    HorizantalLimit = Width / Picture1.Width
    VerticalLimit = Height / Picture1.Height

    For ii = 0 To VerticalLimit
    For jj = 0 To HorizantalLimit
    PaintPicture Picture1, jj * Picture1.Width, ii * Picture1.Height, Picture1.Width, Picture1.Height
    Next
    Next

    End Sub

    Call this Sub in Form Load, and also on Form Resize. That way it will automatically load for you, and will resize itself as the dialog is resized.
