  • Inserting Picture

    I'm trying to figure out a way to insert a picture for display using the external command or insert form and be able to close the picture by pressing the "DONE" key on the RCU. I hate walking back to the computer and closing the pictuer via mouse.

    Craiger, any VB ideas? Anyone else?

    If you are using the "FORM" option in 4.1 and up do this...

    Code:
    SETUP      =COMMENT/YESNO,NO,DO YOU WANT TO SEE THE SETUP PHOTO?
                IF_GOTO/SETUP.INPUT=="NO",GOTO = NO SETUP
    CS2        =FORM/FILENAME= X:\FORMS\HARLEY-DAVIDSON\BIG_TRANNY_CAST1.FORM
                PARAM/=
                ENDFORM/
    NO SETUP   =LABEL/
    And you should be good to go.

    Create your FORM by inserting a .jpg or .bmp into the FORM and then save the FORM to your computer. Recall as shown.

    This allows you to hit the DONE button to continue.

      Alternate method.

      I keep all my pics (jpg) in one folder, then go to "insert, report command, external object, click on create from file, then browse for your folder, select your jpg, put a check in display as icon, then ok.

      Typically your jpg will show up as an empty white box. Now highlite the "jpg" (left click), next hit F3, box will go yellow with black cross lines, now F3 once more and the lines will extend beyond the box.

      You're good to go.

        Wouldn't that show up on the report?

          When I do that, the form editor shows up.

            It works best if you put picture in a Powerpoint document and then insert it as an external object, then hit F3 3 times to change the mode of execution for the external object. It works better in PP because it works like a slide show and you can use your controller (Done button) to get past each slide and close the document, then move on with the program. Can't do that when you use a .jpeg or .bmp image alone. You must use PowerPoint. I use PowerPoint for all my external objects. It works that well.

              Don't know what to tell you.

              Not to be the bearer of bad news but it could be that 4.1 thing biting you? I know you have no control over the version you're using.

                Not sure how you got it setup, but my done button doesn't do anything to the powerpoint picture.

                  I think it's v4.1 issue that I can't get it to setup the same as you guys.

                    You must insert the entire Powerpoint document, once you get the excecution mode correct, by hitting F3 3 times, it will load and work as a slide show, you hit your 'Done' button to move to the next slide until you're done. (Your picture shows up on a slide) Then you can use your 'Done' button to continue the program.

                    I did this in v4.1 and now I'm doing it in v4.2...

                    Keep trying......this works

                      Hmm, my done button does nothing when the powerpoint slide comes up.

                          Be sure to close down the Form editor before executing. If it's still open when you execute it'll likely open up in edit mode. If it's closed when you execute it should open up correctly (in run mode).
