Dear all
I have developed a program which runs absolutely fine.
Now i want to be able to change the form's image at run time but that should remain as default (permanently)even after closing the program.
I did try using common dialog to set form's image but as soon as i close the program the image is gone.
Please help me
Thank you in advance.

I am using the following code

common dialog1.ShowOpen
Form1.Picture = LoadPicture(common dialog1.FileName)

thank you

Hello Sir
I have a problem in Data report in vb6 with access 2007. Actually I want to calculate the sum of rate field of selected records and show the sum on label in section 5 of the data report.
I did try but no success. I am using the following code.
Collapse | Copy Code
rs.Open "select * from patients where Receipt_date=#" & Label3.Caption & "#and investigation= '" & Combo1.Text & "'", Con, adOpenDynamic, adLockPessimistic

' DataReport1.Show

DataReport1.Sections(5).Controls("label17").Caption = ("select sum(rate) from patientswhere Receipt_date=#" & Label3.Caption & "#and investigation= '" & Combo1.Text & "'" & "")
Set DataReport1.DataSource = rs

If you want to make a change permanent, without altering the source code each time the image changes, then you need to store the image path in a file outside the application, and restore it when you load the program.

There are a huge number of ways you can do this, fvrom registry, to INI files, to databases, to date files, but this might be a simple way for you to do it:[^]

The only thing I would suggest is not to do what the author suggests as regards where to store the data: he stores it in the Application directory, which is not a good idea as on Vista and above there is a very good chance you won't have write access to that folder when you install your program properly. There is an Tip here that explains better places: Where should I store my data?[^]
