I stripped out a lot of stuff out of the code below to simplify my question a little.
I am using a VBS file to open a web browser window and display some text and an image.
The text works fine, but the image does not appear, only the place holder.
I modified the line to display the image a few times adding quotes around the file name with no luck.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Dim objIE, objDoc
 

'Open a new browser session

Set objIE = WScript.CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")
 

'Set Browser Parameters

objIE.AddressBar = False

objIE.FullScreen = True

objIE.MenuBar = False

objIE.Resizable = False

objIE.Silent = True

objIE.StatusBar = False

objIE.TheaterMode = False

objIE.ToolBar = False
 

objIE.Width = 700

objIE.Height = 500

objIE.Visible = 100
 

objIE.Navigate "about:blank"

objIE.Visible = True
 

Set objDoc = objIE.Document
 

'Display Output Text

objDoc.Write "<html><head>"

objDoc.Write "<title>Hello!</title>"

objDoc.Write "</head>"

objDoc.Write "<body>"

objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"

objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"

objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"

objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#FFFFFF>Space"

objDoc.Write "<p align=center><font color=#000000 size=+2>Displaying Image<br></p>"

objDoc.Write "<p></p>"

objDoc.Write "<p align=center><img src=c:\fileprogress.gif width=546 height=27 border=0></img>"

objDoc.Write "</html>"

Open in new window

Hi, this line:
objDoc.Write "<p align=center><img src=c:\fileprogress.gif width=546 height=27 border=0></img>"

should be
objDoc.Write "<p align='center'><img src='c:\fileprogress.gif' width='546' height='27' border='0'></img>"

Regards,

Rob.

I have tried that and it does not work.  Same results.  I tried this on IE6 and 7 on Win2000 and XP.  Any other suggestions?

Hi, your code works for me as is, actually, although you are missing a couple of tags.

Add
</p></body>

directly after the </img> tag.

But that didn't really make a difference to functionality.

Can you confirm the file is in exactly that place, case sensitive named?

Regards,

Rob.
