I used ActiveX Microsoft Form button to create a button with picture.. will there be any problem with this method? or i should instead code the button with the coding below :

CString szFilename ("C:\Talla\yourimg.bmp");
HBITMAP hBmp = (HBITMAP)::LoadImage(
                NULL,
                szFilename,
                IMAGE_BITMAP,
                0,
                0,
                LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION
                );

Because i using ActiveX and found that it is easy to use.. but i'm afraid there might be some problem cos sometimes things easy does not mean good... Thanks

The only problem I can see is that you should use double backslashes in your path names, e.g.

CString szFilename ("C:\\Talla\\yourimg.bmp");
HBITMAP hBmp = (HBITMAP)::LoadImage(
               NULL,
               szFilename,
               IMAGE_BITMAP,
               0,
               0,
               LR_LOADFROMFILE|LR_CREATEDIBSECTION
               );

BTW, see also http://www.codeguru.com/Cpp/G-M/bitmap/article.php/c1681/ ("Creating a bitmap object from a BMP file") and http://www.codeguru.com/Cpp/G-M/bitmap/article.php/c1693/ ("Creating a DIB section from a BMP file")

Well, 'LoadImage()' is an SDK/API method and has nothing to do with ActiveX. And, it's hard to tell which is better. Both are OK.
