How can I set an image to be the background of the form? (I.E. sent to back, so that all controls are still viewable)

Try:
Private Sub Form_Load()
  Dim sPath As String
  
  sPath = App.Path
  If Right(sPath, 1) <> "\" Then
      sPath = sPath & "\"
  End If
  
  Me.Picture = LoadPicture(sPath & "SamplePicture.jpg")
  
End Sub

Open in new window
