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

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*
