Create a Thumbnail/Bitmap Application in Access 97
Posted on 2000-05-01
This is part one and these are the first questions of a three part application.
I need to write a Access 97 program, using Access 97 code, instead of Visual Basic or other code.
The program will load many, good-quality, thumbnail images of a bitmap directory on a screen, one page at a time.
Then the user clicks an option to select 'Next Page', Previous Page', or 'Main Menu', Unless it is the first or last page, which will remove 'Previous Page' or 'Next Page' text from the screen accordingly.
The user can also click on thumbnail to view fullsize image. Which will then give options 'Next Image', Previous Image', 'Return To Thumbnails', or 'Main Menu'.
I then want to make a MDE file and put the program and pictures on a CD. I have a Toshiba 7201 Desktop Computer, running Windows 95b, with Office 97 Developers Edition Tools, and a Sony Rewritable CD.
I have tried using shareware and other programs but the thumbnails aren't of good-quality, like when viewing with Windows 'My Computer' or they have other problems.
