WMF picture from clipboard in Access 97?
Posted on 1997-11-15
Hi, all. I need to retrieve a picture from the clipboard using Access 97. The application that puts it there actually puts it in three formats at the same time: BMP, windows metafile format, and its native format. I want to copy the metafile version and place it in an image or frame for later use. I'd rather not disturb the user with a dialog box every time this happens (basically every record).
I've seen the article "How to Retrieve Information from the Clipboard" -- it shows how to get text from the clipboard but I don't know how to a) go about getting a metafile format picture instead, and b) what to do with it when I've got it in order to place it in, say, an image control.
Does someone have a handy-dandy function for doing this?
Thanks in advance,
