experts,
 i am trying to use an Ole bound control on my form. I want it to be of class Paint.Pictre when the form opens up.
 I do the following in the Form_load() event.
 
    Me.OleCtl.Class = "Paint.Picture"
    Me.OleCtl.OLETypeAllowed = acOLEEmbedded
    Me.OleCtl.Action = acOLECreateEmbed

 This works good. and i get to see the Paint obj in the control when i open the form.

Problem -
 I would like to know a way to control the default size of the Paint document inside this control. The size of my ole control frame (on the form) is fixed while the default size that the paint document takes inside this frame is much bigger and results in a clipped view of the document.(and results in showing up scroll bars).

  Is there a way to use the SourceItem property ? just a possible clue. Usually i read 'refer the Ole server's documentation' but dont know where to find one for Paint.

 Please help.

set the "size mode" property to the setting you want - I think there are three settings - you can test it by setting it in the properties window and then opening your form

funke,
thx, but size mode property changes the size of the 'window' in which the paint document is contained. But has no effect on the 'canvas' of the Paint image (document).
I am not sure if this is possible, easily.
How and where do i get information on the Paint.Picture Object ?
