Can anyone please tell me how to call the API: GdipLoadImageFromFile in VB6 and pass it a filename that contains Chinese Characters?

For example:

c:\media\¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿,¿39.JPG

Many thanks

Private Declare Function GdipLoadImageFromFile Lib "gdiplus" (ByVal FileName As Long, hImage As Long) As Long

Call using StrPtr:

GdipLoadImageFromFile StrPtr(sFilename), GpImagePtr

-----

This assumes that you are able to retrieve the Unicode Path + Filename.
You can't do this with Vb6 Dir or FileListBox since these are ANSI controls.

Try this Unicode aware CommonDialog replacement to select the file and pass it to GdipLoadImageFromFile:
