When I try to load into an ImageList more then 9 pictures, I get the "Run-time error 7: Out of memory". All pictures are bmp format.
my code:
For i = 0 To 10
    picName = PictureName(i)
    Set imgX = ImageList1.ListImages.Add(i + 1, picName, LoadPicture(App.Path & "\..\pics\" & picName))
Next i


thanks.

I couldn't recreate this error, even with For i = 0 to 100 it still worked fine.

Could you post the code to the PictureName() function?

Thanks

I'm attaching the PictureName() function, but I don't think this is the problem - When I reduced the loops to 9 it worked good.

Private Function PictureName(index As Integer) As String
Dim name As String
Dim suit As Integer
   
    suit = index \ 13
   
    Select Case suit
        Case 0: name = "G"
        Case 1: name = "R"
        Case 2: name = "Y"
        Case 3: name = "B"
        Case 4: name = "S"
    End Select
   
    If index Mod 13 <= 13 Then
        name = name & ((index Mod 13) + 1)
    End If

    PictureName = name + ".bmp"
End Function

Hmm, I don't know... Here's some things you might try:

    Set imgX = ImageList1.ListImages.Add(i + 1, picName, LoadPicture(App.Path & "\..\pics\" & picName))

change to

    ImageList1.ListImages.Add i + 1, picName, LoadPicture(App.Path & "\..\pics\" & picName)

or

    ImageList1.ListImages.Add i + 1, Left$(picName, Len(picName) - 4), LoadPicture(App.Path & "\..\pics\" & picName)

Otherwise, since they are Bitmaps, they may just be taking up too much memory for it to handle (especially if they are very large), although I don't know why only 10 images would be doing this...

Ok, I found the problem.
I tryed to define the ImageHeight to 1440 and the ImageWidth to 1065 in the properties.
How can I do it by code?

1440x1065 is a gigantic image, especially for a 24-bit bitmap (about 4.4MB in size). I don't think the control can handle it. You may have to resize the images as you retrieve them from the ImageList for use in your program.

Sorry I couldn't give an exact solution, I just don't think it can handle images that big :/

Thanks for the points, and good luck
