RUSH >>> Loading picture

why does the picture doesnt load, pls debug my code, what is stored in tblAdv_FileName field in my database is just a link to the picture (like c:/proj1/images/pic1.jpg). this code of mine is stored in the Form_Load() event.

Dim conn As New ADODB.Connection
Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

conn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
conn.ConnectionString = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};" _
& "DATABASE=BHMTC;" _
& "UID=root;" _
& "OPTION=" & 1 + 2 + 8 + 32 + 2048 + 16384

conn.Open

rs.Open "SELECT * FROM tblAdv", conn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(rs.Fields(tblAdv_FileName))

rs.Close
conn.Close
Set rs = Nothing
Set conn = Nothing

Offtopic, this

Dim conn As New ADODB.Connection
Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

change to

Dim conn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

Also, you should use Set when loading picture

Set Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(rs.Fields(tblAdv_FileName).Value)

Before u execute the statement

Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture(rs.Fields(tblAdv_FileName))

make sure the File stored in the Field name "tblAdv_FileName" exists on the hard drive

U Need to check the whole path of the file or image u want to load..

if u r storing the whole path of the file in ur database then only it will display image..else not..

in ur othet question, i feel u r only storing the file name and not the filepath..

try to store the file name using commondialog1.FileName

@mladenovicz
there's an error, (item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal) on the debug line you suggested, i added it before the set picture1.picture line

@anv
i already stored the filename & its path on my db, i just need to output it on the picture control

check the field name ur giving in the code with the database

use this instead rs!tblAdv_FileName  where tblAdv_FileName is the field name as given in the database
