    Question Picture

    Quite some time ago I wrote a program that included a PictureBox. In the IDE, entered the picture location and name in the Picture Property. How di I now get the path and name of that picture?

    Thanks

    As far as I know,the path to the image is not retained anywhere, the image is directly imported into the form and stored in the form's frx file.

    Short answer: You can't.

    I will note that you can manually store the path in the "Tag" property of the picturebox and then reference that tag property in code to get the path to the file.

    Probably the only way is to extract the image from the .frx and save it to disk. And then use it as conveniently.

    I though about doing what OptionBase1 suggested in post #3.

    If I had a lot of PBs, I thought about creating a dummy routine and just listing each picture box. This would be similar to using the LoadPicture statement in code. Or, just use the LoadPicture code.

    But, of course, that doesn't help me now!
