File Preview in image control

Post by Camero » Tue, 06 Apr 2004 11:07:54

Hi,
I'm trying to have a file preview show in an image control
(like the File New dialog box).
If anyone can help me that would be great thanks

G'day "Cameron" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

this question pops up infrequently. I've never bothered other than to
usurp the insert picture dialog for my own nefarious purposes.

However, something should be possible using the RichText control type
and feeding it the first page of the document. You will either have to
modify the definitions in the RTF string to 1/8th normal (approx diff
between image preview size and 100% doc view) or set the zoom settings
appropriately.
