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

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: http://www.vb6.us/tutorials/store-data-resource-files-visual-basic-does[^]
 
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?[^]
