Hello!

I have a VB 6.0 problem. Let's go through step by step:
1. I add Microsoft Windows Common controls 6.0(SP4)
2. I add these 3 components on the form:
      imageCombo1 representing ImageCombo control
      imageList1 representing ImageList control
      command1 representig a CommadnButton.

Let's look at the code:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
   ImageList1.ListImages.Add 1, "ImageKey", LoadPicture("c:\test.bmp")
   ImageCombo1.ComboItems.Add 1, "ItemKey", "This is a test item", "ImageKey"
End Sub

Now when pressing the command button I get this error : "ImageList must be initialized before it can be used"

Thanks for all your help.

Regards,
Peter

Right Click the ImageCombo1 Control, then go to the Properties, at the ImageList drop-down, select the ImageList1. Then try run your code again, it should works now.

Sure! You mistyped yourself. I knew what you meant instantly, but someone could have problems with it for about 10 seconds :-) I had to rightclick the ImageCombo not Imagelist. No offence.
