I was expecting to see the image name and path currently displayed in a BitmapViewer control as one of the properties but don't seem to be able to find something relevant eg
Code:
Private Sub BitmapViewer2_GotFocus()
    MsgBox Me.BitmapViewer2.Value 'returns current image and path displayed in control
End Sub
It obviously doesn't work like this. Could you tell me how I return the name of the current image displayed in the control Thanks Teifivalley

Teifivalley, Here is what i do, I save the name when it is loaded so that I can use the same filename in other parts of the program if i need to. If you are using only a single form(VB) in the general section: Dim imagefile as string If you use multiple forms you woiuld want to put it in a module so that you can use it anywhere in your app. Public imagefile as string Then when the user loads the image say: imagefile=dialog.filename Once you have set the varible you can then call it anytyime you need it.
Code:
bm.bitmap.loadfromfile(imagefile)
me.caption="The file that is loaded is " & imagefile
recordset("image")=imagefile
Etc. Ira Whitney

Thanks for your reply, - I have actually done the same as a temporary stop gap but the projects form could display up to 30 images built on the fly. A bmviewer property would be a neater solution than having to keep track of all these variables. Thanks Richard

Richard, BitmapViewer does not keep any filenames. It can display images not only loaded from files, that's why it would not have any sense to store filenames. Instead of it, BitmapViewer keeps the image itself which is available through the Bitmap property. However each VB6 control (including BitmapViewer) has a Tag property. You can use it to store your custom data. In particular you can write the file name of the image when you load it into the BitmapViewer.
Code:
Dim strFilename
strFilename = "C:\[Test Files]\test.gif"
BitmapViewer1.Bitmap.LoadFromFile(strFilename)
BitmapViewer1.Tag = strFilename 
Hope this helps.
