about the "picture" in a control

In VB5CCE, the trial version.
When open the property page of a ListView there is a "picture" tab (I also found it in other controls). Can you tell me what is it for and how to use it. (No help for it in the version)

When you click on the Picture Tab, MouseIcon is probably your only settable property (in the listbox on the left of the tab). If you select browse and find a icon file for example, the icon will show in the box on the left (named Preview). If you then go back to the properties list for the ListView control and set the MousePointer property to 99-ccCustom then when your code runs whenever the mouse passes directly over the ListView the mouse pointer will change to the Icon you specified under the Picture Tab.
So basically it is another a way to specify a different mouse pointer when the pointer passes over that object. The same thing can be accomplished by setting the MouseIcon properties and MousePointer properties in the properties list.

I hit "answer" a few seconds after you, willmrk. I'll post it as a comment...(but it's quite the same as yours):

The picture tab of the ListView control can only be used to set an ICO-file as mousecursor. It's the same as setting a mousecursor for a form and the like.
Don't worry about the Help-button. In the official release you will see it disabled on the picture-tab as well. You should use the (standard) help of VB for info about setting a picture for the mousecursor.

Hope this helps you out.
