excel 2010 vba...

I need a function to activate during the Change event for a listbox.
I passing variable for the value to load an image will be in column(0) in the listbox.

What I need:

When a user scrolls in the listbox  a new image is displayed depending on the value in Column(0) in the listbox.

The path for the images file are in:

C:\MyPics\

trying to get this to work..

Dim Gsku As String
    Dim fPath As String
     
     'selects the range to look for a name.  You have to have a range
     'named  myName set up on column A.  Go to insert-name-define to
     'see how this one is set up.
    Gsku = ListBox1.Column(0)
        On Error Resume Next
        If Gsku Is Nothing Then
            Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(fPath & "NOTAVAIL.JPG")
        Else
                'Look in the directory where this workbook is located.
                fPath = "C:\MyPics"
                On Error Resume Next
                 'If a matching picture is found then display it.
                Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(fPath & Gsku & "_AS01.jpg")
                 'If No picture found then display the default picture.
                If Err = 0 Then Exit Sub
                Image1.Picture = LoadPicture(fPath & "nopic.gif")
         
        End If

Does the code you posted not work?

One thing I can seet that might cause problems is the missing end \ from fPath.

Try adding it.
fPath = "C:\MyPics\"

Open in new window
