First of all... Thank You for taking the time to review this post.
I have been trying to find a way to resize a .GIF or .BMP image, and place the resized image in a cell location within a row of a MSFlexGrid - But No Luck!.

I have tried a LoadPicture event of a PictureBox with AutoSize=TRUE (this is to get the proper full size initially), then I PaintPicture in another PictureBox with the .Width & .Height amounts changed as needed. This looks great, but when I try to put the resized image of the second PictureBox using a "Set MSFlexGrid.CellPicture = PictureBox2.Picture" (the image does NOT appear in the cell!) I have tried doing "SET MSFlexGrid.CellPicture = PictureBox1.Picture" (and that displays ok - but it is the original image size), and finanly I discovered this is the same as doing a "Set MSFlexGrid.CellPicture = LoadPicture("C:\Images\filename.Gif")

I have tried many different variations of the above, including using a Image Control and the Stretch, but when it comes time for the ".CellPicture" It just doesnt want to work for me!

*** SAMPLE CODE I HAVE TRIED ***
Picture1.AutoSize = True
Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\Images\filename.Gif")
sngPctDiff = .75

Picture2.AutoSize = False
Picture2.Width = Picture1.Width * sngPctDiff
Picture2.Height = Picture1.Height * sngPctDiff
Picture2.PaintPicture Picture1.Picture, 0, 0, Picture1.Width * sngPctDiff, Picture1.Height * sngPctDiff

With MSFlexGrid
.Row = 1
.Col = 0
Set .CellPicture = Picture2.Picture
End With


Any suggestions would be much appreciated - Thanks again for taking the time to read this - maybe you have an idea I can try?.

Thank You ARK!
That did the trick - I just forgot to include that last line of code.

Glad to help you. BTW, you can use Image control with stretch property set to True to resize your picture.
Private Sub Command1_Click()
  Dim stdPic as stdPicture
  Dim d as Single
  Set stdPic = LoadPicture("C:\Images\filename.Gif")
  d = 0.75
  Image1.Width = ScaleX(stdPic.Width, vbHimetric, vbTwips) * d
  Image1.Height = ScaleY(stdPic.Height, vbHimetric, vbTwips) * d
  Image1.Stretch = True
  Image1.Picture = stdPic
  With MSFlexGrid
   .Row = 1
   .Col = 0
   Set .CellPicture = Image1.Image
  End With
End Sub
Cheers

I tried all the above methodologies and have a couple of comments:

First the Image1.Image suggested in the last submission I can't get to work as the Image control doesn't seem to have an Image property

Second, I've tried the other method of paintpicture, etc and all I get is a 'grey' shaded image, the real image I want 'pops' up in the Picture box (picture2) but then vanishes.

Any comments?

Okay, setting .AutoRedraw to True solves the grey image bit, but each image when added to the grid chnages all the prior images to the current (last) image loaded. I have set FillStyle to flexFillSingle.

Any ideas?
