Hello Experts,

I have an Access 2003 report, with several image controls.
The images are loaded at the Load event.

Now i need to rotate these images 90 degrees counter clockwise.
Does someone knows how to doe this?

With kind regards,

Gijsbert

Hi

This cannot be done with native Access :(

You can either Pre-Rotate the image/s , or I think there are some plug-ins that can do this.

Open them in an app that can rotate them (even the Windows Picture & Fax Viewer will do), rotate it, and re-save it, then re-import the images.

There is a third-party control named DBPix that will do what you want.

See: http://www.ammara.com/support/help/html/mimagerotate.html

There is also this: http://access.bukrek.net/

The Image control does not expose a method to rotate the contents of the
control. If you must have this functionality then the easiest method that
would involve little or no programming would be to use a third party ActiveX
control that supports rotation. Search for the DBPix control.

If you do not mind coding a bit, the ImageClass on my site does support
rotation for the standard Image control.
