say I have an object that has a property picturepath
so I like to use this property to get my picture.
I tried like this
<OBJECT ID="mypictureobject" CLASSID="CLSID:9AA7F4F0-629F-11D2-8CEB-00A0C949D865"></OBJECT>
<IMG SRC= 'mypictureobject.picturepath'>

but !!!! this does not work, all
mypictureobject.picturepath is a path to xxx.gif, and
I verified it is correct.
please if you are not sure about your answer

That will just set SRC to "mypictureobject.picturepath".
If you want to set it to the actual value of the variable, use this simple JavaScript:

document.write('<IMG SRC="' + mypictureobject.picturepath + '">');
// -->

You have to do somthing like this:

<BODY onLoad="MyImage.src=mypictureobject.picturepath")>
<OBJECT ID="mypictureobject" CLASSID="CLSID:9AA7F4F0-629F-11D2-8CEB-00A0C949D865"></OBJECT>
<IMG SRC="dummy.gif" NAME="MyImage">

<IMG ID = myimage>
