Is there any free or inexpensive(< ~$50) 32-bit custom control that can ;
1) View JPEG files;
2) print JPEG files in printer object;
3) (optional) provide thumbnail control;
4) (optional) support TWAIN interface.
In fact, the "Imaging for Windows" do all the things I want. Only that it doesn't support some JPEG format, e.g., files from Sony Mavica digital camera (see more at http://www.eastmansoftware.com/products/ImagingPro/Reading_Room/format.htm).

Thanks,
Henry

The Internet Explorer Browser control can do 1 and 2 with no problems and is free.  No thumbnails or twain though, but you said they were optional.

Answers2000,

  Are you talking about the library SHDOCVW.DLL? If so, can you give me some source of information on handling it. I can't found any help file associate with it.

Thanks,

Henry

yes.  

The doc's are in Microsoft Internet platform SDK.  All the sample calls referrer to IWebBrowser:: (this might show up in your help) and use C++ style conventions (you should be able to figure out the parameter types in VB, by typing the function control name, the ".", and the function name from C++ (minus IWebBrowser::)

To view a file, use code like:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
  WebBrowser1.Navigate "f:\loop1.jpg"
End Sub

The rest of the answer is coming (printing and some other methods, sorry no TWAIN or thumbnails)



To get you started, I did this
1. Create a form
2. Insert SHDOCVW.DLL as if an OCX on to my form (I had to right click on the component bar, and check "Microsoft Internet Controls" to get in the component bar).
3.

Some other example calls (name should be obvious, same as IE functions)
  WebBrowser1.GoBack
  WebBrowser1.GoForward
  WebBrowser1.GoHome
  WebBrowser1.Refresh

Print:
  WebBrowser1.ExecWB OLECMDID_PRINT, OLECMDEXECOPT_DONTPROMPTUSER

Is that enough to get you started ?
