Does someone know how to get a form's background image to stretch so it fits the whole form's background?
I searched everywhere in MSDN and the Object library without any luck.

Image Dimensions For A Form Background
Hi, maybe I'm missing something but what measurement are a form's width and height in. It's not pixels.

A Form Background Image Doesn't Look Good
Hi, I am using visual basic 6.0.
I wanted to put a background picture (myback.jpg)
in my main form, but the picture doesn't look good
in the form.
If I open the picture in paint, photo editor or whatever
it looks as it is (really nice).
Seems like forms in visual basic don't manage the
depth of colors that the picture has.
How can I do to let forms show the depth of colors
of pictures to make them look good?
Thanks in advance
Form Background Image Not Filling Bottom Of Screen
Ive got a form that has a background pic on it 1024x768. Normally if i set the forms property to maximised an turn off the borderstyle and taskbar then the picture fills the ENTIRE screen. My code then allows then the border and taskbar to be turned back on (and off again if required). But when the border and taskbar are turned off again, there is a gap at the bottom of the picture. The top of the image never changes but the bottom of the image has lost some of it. Anyone know how to make it full size again?
Ive attached a picture to this post showing what it is like when it doesnt work and ill attach a picture of what its like when i first run it when it DOES work to the next post.
Using A Background Image For A Form Element (button..label Etc)
in Visual Basic .net, when i make a picture the background of a button/text box etc, it will increase the size of the exe for each individual text box...is there anyway to embed the bmp/jpg into the project so that all the text boxes only use that one picture instead of each text box having an individual picture?
for example, if i have 10 objects that use pic.jpg (which is 40 kb), the exe increases by 400 kb.
Anyway that the objects can reference the same file, and increase by 40 kb instead?

How can i get a backrgound image that is max size... stretched!
I have a small standalone VB6 program that I have just developed. It now needs to be made to look prettier. I would like to keep the file size down but add a bit of style to the background. Any ideas whether putting a single large jpg on the forms is better practice than individual small ones around the edges and middle of the forms?
The forms are all fixed size but I wonder if doing this could give different effects on different setups?

Image As A Background
How can I set an image to be the background of the form? (I.E. sent to back, so that all controls are still viewable)
I want the image to be resived and strech as the form moves, so if the form as 400 by 400 the image would be to, if the form changes to 500 by 300 then i want the image to change to that too. Any one know how?
Hello, I've added an Image in a form and I've made it big enough in order to fit in the form and seem like background. When I run my program everything seems Ok in my computer but when I tried to run it in another computer the image seemed to have become smaller and its position had changed! What's going on?
I am using 5 images in a PictureBox (using If....Else condition). Now when I have a look at the images in any image editor (like MS Paint etc.), I find that the background of all the images are white but when the same images are loaded in the PictureBox one by one, I find that some of the images don't show that white background but some of the images show the white background (all the images are 32X32).
Changing the background color of those images which show the white background in the PictureBox to the Windows system color scheme will not help me because I can't expect all users to use the same Windows color scheme in their machine that I am using. So how do I ensure that the images that show the white background in the PictureBox don't show the white background like how the images that don't show the white background in the PictureBox behave?
Note that I have set the BackColor property of the PictureBox as the Application Workspace.

Background Image Control
I am developing an application using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0. I need an image control for displaying a background picture of a form, on which other smaller images and shapes (such as circles or lines) are displayed and moved by the user. The problem with the basic VB image control is that its rendering capabilities are not sufficient, and moving other images upon it during runtime results in a very disturbing "flickering" effect.
I thought of using the GTImage ActiveX control, but when I tried to use it I couldn't move it to the background and place other images or shapes on top of it.
Is there any way of doing that using this control ? Are there any other image controls I can use, or any other ideas on how to solve the problem ?

Image Background Not Transparent ?!?!
I've got a small jpeg, which is basically a word saying "Approved", which is at an angle of 30 degrees.
Originally the backcolour was white, so I loaded it into Photoshop and made the background transparent.
When I load the picture into either an image or picturebox control in VB6, I still have the word with a white background as opposed to a transparent background.
How do I make VB realise that the background is transparent, as I want to overlay it on some labels ?
Or can this not be done ?
Any help much appreciated ...
