I know how to add a property to the properties page for my OCX, but how do I allow a user to browse for a picture at design time? I am creating a type of picture control, and I would like to be able to set any picture I want into it, but I need to know how to browse the hard drive.

A property which is of the StdPicture type will automatically have the browse feature in the property window. In order to add the browse function to the property page, you can add the StandardPicture built in page to the property page.  All of your StdPicture properties will then be listed.


Public Property Set Picture2(ByVal NewPic As StdPicture)
    Set mPic2 = NewPic
End Property

Public Property Get Picture2()
    Set Picture2 = mPic2
End Property
