Loadpicture in OnFormat event

    The following code

    Sub OnFormat
    rpt.sections("detail").controls("imgfront").picture = LoadPicture(rpt.parameters("ImgFront").value)
    rpt.sections("detail").controls("imgback").picture = LoadPicture(rpt.parameters("ImgBack").value)
    End Sub

    in an rpx file results in a run-time error "Path/File Access error" "loadpicture".  The image files definitely exist.  The parameters are something like C:\Myfolder\My Subfolder\subsubfolder\my image.jpg.  The OS is Vista Home Basic and all Users have permissions to view and read the contents of My Subfolder.

    Also, the identical code, if not placed in a script but placed in the Detail_Format event in the designer does work.  Like this:

    public img1 as string
    public img2 as string

    Private sub detail_format()
    imgfront.picture = loadpicture(img1)
    imgback.picture = loadpicture(img2)
    end sub

    Hello ,

    1) We do not support Active Reports 2.0 (COM) in Vista environment.

    2) I think rpt.parameters(...).value returns wrong data.

    I've attached the project which works fine under Vista Ultimate 64-bit.

    ActiveReports 2.0 (COM) is supported under Vista. See this announcement.

    If anyone is using ActiveReports 2.0 under Vista, or if you support Vista for your end users, you should use at least service pack 5 (build or later.
