lieu of bmp.  ? is what directory do I unzip it to to be able to use it and how do I call it to the screen to be able

Some time ago I used this control in the two versions:one older (it didn't use a ocx, I was to call a dll) and later this version
This OCX works fine,but with the new features in VB5 sometimes is useless.

You have to register manually:
(Part of the comments are extracted from the help)
To use GVBox, place the files GVBOX.OCX, GVBOX.LIC, GVJPEG32.DLL, GVPNG32.DLL, and GVTIFF32.DLL in  your Windows\System directory.  Then use REGSVR32.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\GVBOX.OCX to register it.  If you
load the VB project, GVBox will self-register in whatever directory it is in.  If you move it later, you will need to re-register it.

GVBOX.OCX also requires MFC40.DLL and MSVCRT.DLL.  Both files should be installed before GVBOX.OCX when you distribute any applications.

Be sure to download the latest  version (257.9K).It has Help and one example.
Use a FTPsearch (ftpsearch.lycos.com) and look for gvocx.zip
By example
257.9K 1998 Jul 23 ftp.rediris.es       /mirror/winsite/win95/programr/vbasic/gvocx.zip
That worked fine.

Fer
PD:In VB5 you can load a GIF,BMP,DIB,WMF,EMF,ICO,CUR and JPEG image .Consider to use VB5 in the future
(or VB6)

The explanation seems OK, I will try to use the above, unzip it
and use it.  The only thing I'm not quite sure of is how the OCX
will be called to the screen, not having used anything other than
MS's standard controls.  Maybe everything will be self evident
after I unzip it and try it.
 
Thank you.
