RE: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Visual_Basic/Q_20797176.html

I have a form (form1), and have passed a picture to it from another form (form2, which is an image chooser form), but I want the form (form1) to update automatically
As it is now, the user has to click a command button to apply the image, and I want it done  when they choose the image from form2
again, I'm a begginer, and using vb5

You can just do

form1.picture = loadpicture ("your picture file")


from form2

OK, just tried it, and it didn't work
No errors, just didn't update the pick on form1

Yep but it can get as frustrating as well when you can't get what you want to work the way you want it to. :)

create a stdpicture variable in a bas module.

public pic as stdpicture


when user choose the picture do this:

set pic=loadpicture(????) ' i don't know how user chooses it

set form1.picture1.picture=pic
set form2.picture1.picture=pic
or


set form2.picture1.picture=loadpicture(????) ' i don't know how user chooses it
set form1.picture1.picture=form2.picture1.picture

Doh, my bad, it worked, but I had an image overlayed, and have the form a fixed size, so couldn't see it
I just added
form1.Image1.Image = Loadpicture(Pictfilename)
to form2 and it worked *sheepish grin*
