Need a "Window above bimap" ActiveX

P: n/a
I need an ActiveX control, or any other solution which permits me to
show only a part of a huge bitmap (about 4000 X 3500 pixels) for each
record in an Access database.

The part of the image should appear at 1:1 scale.
I MUST be able to displace the position of this window above the huge
image, or, more easily, (and practically), displace the image under
the fixed window.
Ideally, it should be done by X,Y origin point coords stored in a
table, or any system like this one.

The important thing is that when i browse records, the (little) shown
part of the huge image can "move" over the bitmap to correspond to the
data entered in each records.

Any of you know about a solution, probably an ActiveX one?

Thank you very much!

If I understand you correctly, and you are using a recent version of
WIndows and Access, then you might be able to accomplish what you want
without resorting to an ActiveX control.

If you place and Image control on a seperate Form, and then insert this
form as a SubForm, you can programmatically manipulate the ScrollBars of
the form to achieve the desired effect.
For an example of this type of interface see:

Very interesting things on your site, sincere congratulations! I will
explore the function you tell me about.

Can you please tell me how i can programatically manipulate the
scroolbars, at least function name and/or parameters?

Thank you very much!
