Viewing Multiple Pictures

The following code works very nicely for viewing a picture in a ImageBox but it will not allow repeated clicks of the command button.  I must have to unload the first picture before calling the second picture.How is this done?

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Image1.Picture = LoadPictur("C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\snap.jpg")
End Sub

Hi BOBH

Try
dim holdnum as integer
holdnum = 1
Private Sub Command1_Click()

Image1.Picture = LoadPictur("C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\snap.jpg")
End Sub

I just tried it, worked fine for me. Only thing I can see wrong is the spelling, should be LoadPicture.

Hi BOBH

Sorry about the above


dim holdnum as integer
holdnum = 1
Private Sub Command1_Click()
  Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("")
if holdnum = "1" then
  Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\snap.jpg")
elseif holdnum = "2" then
  Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\snap2.jpg")
elseif holdnum = "3" then
  Image1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\snap3.jpg")
end if
holdnum = holdnum + 1
End Sub

Hope this helps...

If you're looking to display a series of pictures in sequence every time you click a button, such as one labeled "Next" there are several ways.  The above comment is one.  Here's another:

' Assumes all desired pictures are in one directory, and all of the same type

' Place this before all other procedures
Private m_strFilename as string

private sub Form_Load()
'...other code here
   InitializePictures
'...other code here
end sub

private sub InitializePictures()
   ' strMyPath is the path to the pictures
   dim strMyPath as string

   strMyPath = "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\"
   m_strFilename = Dir$(strMyPath & "*.jpg")
end sub

Private sub Command1_Click()
  Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(m_strFilename)
  m_strFilename = Dir$
  if m_strFilename = vbNullString then
    ' out of pictures...start again
    InitializePictures
  end if
end sub

Finally got back into the forum. I've been locked out for several days for unknown reasons.
 The above comments are excellent, and I will give them a  try.  Basically what I've been trying to do is to retrieve an ever changing JPG picture from another application from the clipboard and show it in an Image box by calling the same file name repeatedly.  The problem has been that the program will run for a while, but then develops an error. Error trapping can eliminate the error but no new pictures are assigned to the Image box. I cannot number each picture as there will be an infinate number of them. Perhaps some of the above comments will help.
