I am drawing bars in picture boxex representing data from the database. I have pic2 as container, and pic(1)... are the bars using load picture(i) loop where i is the number of items. it is working ok. when i delete one item, it is deleted from the tabble but the bar is still showing. i tried pic2.cls, .refresh no use, i need a way to refresh these bars and only show what is in the dbase. the worst scinario when the table is empty, i can not refresh till i quit the programme and reload it which is silly. so any one can help if i was understood!!
