This is first time I need to load picture to my GUI from URL and I did some research about it. I found only this solution:

I have converted this to funtion:

  original script:
  coded by UEZ 2011

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Func _GUICtrlSetPicFromUrl($idGUICtrlPic, $Url)
    ;check the control pos and size
    Local $aPos = ControlGetPos(_WinAPI_GetParent(GUICtrlGetHandle($idGUICtrlPic)), "", $idGUICtrlPic)

    Local Const $STM_SETIMAGE = 0x0172
    Local Const $hBmp = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory(InetRead($Url), True)
    Local Const $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hBmp)
    Local Const $iWidth = _GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hBitmap)
    Local Const $iHeight = _GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hBitmap)
    GUICtrlSendMsg($idGUICtrlPic, $STM_SETIMAGE, $IMAGE_BITMAP, $hBmp)

    ;resize control back to it's original size if size of the image is bigger than control size
    if $iWidth > $aPos[2] or $iHeight > $aPos[3] then
        GUICtrlSetPos($idGUICtrlPic, $aPos[0]-1, $aPos[1]-1, $aPos[2], $aPos[3]) ;here I had to use "-1" to change position because otherwise it does not work

I was wondering if there is any other way to do this? My research is from 2014

Why? Is it not working? What kind other way are you looking for?

Of course, you can save the image first to disk and load it afterwards to your script.

It is working but I thought maybe there is simpler way to do this.

I am wondering why I need to move picture control to make the picture appear? Or how can I change the size of the image to fit the control instead of fitting big image to the smaller control (quality of picture is not good)

Maybe by using resize :

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GDIPlus.au3>
#include <WinAPI.au3>

Const $URL = "https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/uploads/monthly_2021_04/image.png.552f1c90192fed33bad1e8748f470c71.png"

Local $hGUI = GUICreate("Example Resize")
Local $hImage = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory(InetRead($URL))
Local $iWidth = Int(_GDIPlus_ImageGetWidth($hImage) * 0.75)    ; New size
Local $iHeight = Int(_GDIPlus_ImageGetHeight($hImage) * 0.75)
Local $hImageResized = _GDIPlus_ImageResize($hImage, $iWidth, $iHeight)
Local $idPic = GUICtrlCreatePic("", 10, 10, $iWidth, $iHeight)
Local $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateHBITMAPFromBitmap($hImageResized)
GUICtrlSendMsg($idPic, $STM_SETIMAGE, $IMAGE_BITMAP, $hBitmap)


While True
  Switch GUIGetMsg()
