Accessing graphics file from VB
by DevX Pro
I need to store thumbnail graphics in an Access database (as an OLE object?) and be able to display the columns including the graphic in a table or grid. Ultimately this database will be used in an Intranet site. I cannot determine how to view the graphic. The getChunk commands seems like a lot of work with a great chance for failure. An OCX might work, but I don't need to "play" with the graphic--just show it. Thanks Jdr
