Glossary Item Box

Description

Specifies the name of the image file to be loaded in the control.

Property type

Read-write property

Syntax

Visual Basic
Public Property Picture As String

Remarks

This property specifies the filename of the image to be displayed. If this property is set to a new value, which is not an existing file, an error will occur.

Images can also be loaded over the Internet using FTP, HTTP, and HTTPS protocols. Set the picture property to a complete URL including the FTP://, HTTP://, or HTTPS:// prefixes. Since loading images over the Internet is Asynchronous, program control will return to your code while the image data is being loaded. When the image has completed loading or if an error occurs the ReadyStateChange event will fire. At that time the LoadStatus property will be set to zero if the image successfully loaded otherwise it will contain an error code.

To clear the current image from the control set this property to an empty string.

Example

(Visual Basic)Copy Code
' Load an image from an FTP site
ImageControl1.Picture = "ftp://ftp.data-tech.com/images/cool.gif"

' Load an image from disk
ImageControl1.Picture = "c:\test.pcx"

' Clear the current image from the control
ImageControl1.Picture = ""
