Basically i am trying to implement a ActiveX control which will accept Picture form the user and will display that picture on the control.

My problem,
I have a picture loaded on a form at design time of the ActiveX control and i want to extract the path of that BMP. How can i do that ? Also if you can help how to put BMP selection dialog in the properties menu.

msgbox Form1.Picture 'will return some interger which will not work.


Thanks

Sorry, but you cannot extract the path of that picture.

When you put a picture into a picture component in design time VB saves that picture with the form, in the .frx file. Because of that you cannot get the path of that picture, for VB that picture doesn't exist in your file system, but in VB itselt.

With kind regards

juliocoelho,

Sorry i can't give you point for that.

Basically i have make my usercontrol. I have make one property as Picture. Now my user will write path in that property so i will need to extract that path and have to let my usercontrol know about that.  I think this bit more clear.

If anyone wants to work on it more i can send you my code of usercontrol and help me on that.

I do the same thing, but with a database.  The trick is having the user select the picture path, and then saving that path into a textbox's .text property.  Then you can define the path as a global variable, and call it from wherever in your program.  When the program starts, you can make them click a Browse button and select the picture's path.

Evanl,
I have got the perfect answer as i wanted from  bin_huwairib. He has solved my problem with some other technique which no more requires file name.

Anyway thanks a lot for commenting. I am waiting till he claims for the points.
