Displaying pictures in forms, not picture name

Post by V2lsbF9IYX » Wed, 29 Nov 2006 15:48:01


Hi there

Please help - as above, I don't see a picture in my form, only: the writing
"Picture_Name.jpg"

Only after clicking on Property Picture does the picture in Windows Picture
and Fax Viewer display.

I have gone:
--> Right click on picture --> Properties --> (Bound Object Frame box name)
--> Format, and --> activated Visible to Yes, and Display When to Always.

Also, from Properties --> (Bound Object Frame box name) --> Data, and -->
changed Control Source to Picture.

Thank you
Will

Hi Will,

Try using an Image control instead of a Bound Object Frame.

Hi Damian

Thank you. Do I have to buy / download this function independently of MS
Access? I have Access 2003.

Alternately, how would I do this?

Thanks
Will

Image Control is one of the standard Control that comes with your Access
software ...

Thank you. But I need to display a unique picture for every record (in form
view). I can only work this out in form design view, and then the images are
not unique.

Your help is appreciated
Will

IIRC, you can use the Form_Current Event to change the Picture Property of
the Image Control as the user navigate from one record to another.

Unfortunately at this stage in my understanding of Access that is not enough
info. I will have to look at your info later on.
