how to add pictures to my database

P: 283
Ok I know how to add a picture to the background that is not what I am asking.

What I want to know is can you add any kind of pictures or background details to text boxes, rectangles and other objects on the form to give the whole thing a new level of detail??

A Bitmap or other style Graphic can be displayed on the following type Objects either by setting the Picture Property manually or Programatically:
  1. Command Button
  2. Form
  3. Image Control
  4. Page Object
  5. Report
  6. Toggle Button

How Do i set bitmaps to these types of things. Is it in the properties of each command button..etc. because in the version i am using i dont see any option for that in the properties of each one. How would I do it programatically??

  1. Manually
    1. Open the Form in Design Mode
    2. Select the Command Button
    3. Right Click ==> Properties
    4. Format Tab ==> Picture
    5. Click the ... Button
    6. Select from the Available Pictures or Click Browse
    7. Open/Ok when done
  2. Programmatically
    Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
    1. Me![cmdButton].Picture = "C:\Stuff\Car.bmp"
  3. In the above case, the Graphic would not persist, to do so would be more complicated, but can be shown if need be

Awsome :) Thank you so much for the help. I checked my version of Access at home and found where you can just add a picture very easily but for some reason the version I am using at work does not have that feature. I dont think they installed the whole thing. So far it seems very bare bones. I can't even use the input mask. :(
