How do I control the position of a background image on a Visual Basic form? What I would like to do is improve the look of my form by having a nice image on the left hand side of the form. The same sort of thing that you see during the installation of most softwares.
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?
Sample of PCTools Registry Mechanic interface - I think it is a clean and functional look, I'd like to achieve something like this. How can I style the buttons like this?

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.
does anyone know if the mshflexgrid could have a background graphic? I've found how to load a picture into a cell, but I'd like to put something behind the data.
if that's not possible, then is there anyway to make the flexgrid transparent and place a graphic behind it? maybe someone has a function that will make a control transparent?

Forms Background Picture
When you create a form you can, from the 'Properties Window' , insert a background picture. This picture stays with the form and will appear when the program is even run on a different computer.
Is it possible to be able to switch between pictures without having to resort to 'LoadPicture', which requires a full location of the new picture.
Alternatively, can the original pictre be changed from 'Color' to 'Monochrome'. This, I believe, can be done in an MSFlexGrid.

Background Images On Forms ?
When my form loads I have a background image that loads and for my menu I also have some images loading. I have noticed that there appears to be some delay in loading the images.
So I am trying to find out if there is a way to help VB speed up the loading process so that it doesn't appears so obvious that an image is loading. I have experimented with bmp, gifs and jpgs and the results are pretty much the same.
My question is does VB have an order as to what process are done first in a sub? What gets executed first in a sub? If I put my images at the top of my sub, I assume VB would load those first, before doing anything else in the sub such as a connection to a db, is that a correct assumption? (I know don't assume)

Forms In Forms & Button Image Questions?
Hello- I'm just picking up programming again from a long hiatus (commodore64 and Amiga days), so sorry if my questions are silly:
I need to put forms inside of forms via button click. I'm aware that I must make the main form a parent form by a true statment in the properties. The rest I don't know. My books on VB.net won't arrive for 3 or 4 days yet and I need to make progress also my forms will go about 3 or 4 forms deep before they reach a input/calculation type form...Help!
The other info I need is how (if possible) do I make a separate image appear when the mouse is over a button and another image when the button is clicked...so that's total of three images on a button (counting an original image.)

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 ...
