Hi
I am using RichTextBox1.OLEObjects.Add to adding smile images to my chat but I am facing problem whenever I call this method it create instance of mspaint object, suppose I am added 50 smile images into my RichTextBox it creates 50 instance of mspaint, these instance are hidden but when u press ctrl+alt+del then see the close program widow where 50 instance of mspaint these instance only removed when chat from unload.

if you have any idea that whenever I call this method it add smile image into RichTextBox without creating  a instance of mspaint.

but don't send the copy image to clipboard and paste into RichTextBox.

Hi Rajender,

I have used the Add command without any such problems. Perhaps it is the way you are doing it? A piece of code from my program follows, this uses a common dialog to select and then add the object:

With FMainForm.dlgCommonDialog
        .Filter = "bitmap (*.bmp)|*.bmp|GIF (*.gif)|*.gif|JPG (*.jpg)|*.jpg"
        .ShowOpen
        rtfPage(0).OLEObjects.Add , , .Filename
End With

(rtfPage(0) is a RichTextBox).

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Colin.

No way around it with OLEObjects collection.  The picture is embedded as an object, such that when it receives focus, the application associated with that object is activated so that it can be edited.  The best you can do sticking with OLEObjects is to hide the application, and then remove focus from the object so that the corresponding application is unloaded, e.g.,


With RichTextBox
    .OLEObjects.Add(, , FileName).DoVerb(-3)
    .SelStart = Len(.Text)
    .SelLength = 0
End With

The fact that there is no way around obviously IS an answer surely! AzraSound should therefore get the points!

Fair's Fair!!!!

Just a thought, but if you KNOW the instances are being created, perhaps you could KILL them!? That would at least release the resources! I would reject points for that sick comment anyway! Just thinking out aloud!

Regards,

Colin.
