Northwind Database and you!
Posted on 1999-01-29
I've made a simple Visual Basic 5.0 project, which consists of a form, a database control, and a picturebox control.
Data1 Control Properties
PictureBox1 Control Properties
Now, in theory, I should be able to use the data control to scroll through the pictures in the database, which will appear in the picture box, but what happens, is I get an "invalid picture" error.
Now, when I open the Northwnd.mdb database, I notice that the pictures, are merely ole bitmap image objects, and what appears in the field, is "bitmap image", and not the actual image. This could be my problem, but does anyone know how to remedy this, so I can view the images through the picturebox, and not get the error?
