Description

The steps involved in defining a picture dialog box.

  1. Optionally, check Button displays a different picture when button is pressed.

  2. Select the source of the image. The options are:

    • Embedded 

      Loads and embeds the selected image into the layout. When you embed an image, the original Windows Bitmap (.BMP) or JPEG (.JPG) file is no longer needed; the embedded copy is stored in the database's data dictionary. If you plan to distribute a database, you can embed so that you do not have to supply separate image files.

    • File 

      Displays the Windows Bitmap (.BMP) or JPEG (.JPG) file you select.

    • Library 

      Displays an image of type .BML from the Alpha Five Bitmap Library (if installed).

  3. If you selected "Embedded" in step 2:

    • 1. Click Change embedded bitmap.

    • 2. Navigate to and select the Windows Bitmap (.BMP) or JPEG (.JPG) image file.

    • 3. Click Open.

  4. If you selected "File" in step 2:

    • 1. Click the 'open folder' icon.

    • 2. Navigate to and select the Windows Bitmap (.BMP) or JPEG (.JPG) image file.

    • 3. Click Open.

  5. If you selected "Library" in step 2:

    • 1. Click the 'up' button to display the Insert Image dialog box.

    • 2. Select the image and click Insert.

    • 3. If you checked Button displays a different picture when button is pressed, display the Pressed tab and repeat steps 5b through 5d for the second image.
