    Picture Controls (VB6)

    I'm crawling through these lessons...

    They're talking about moving objects (in a form) by (direct code?) and by move method. As an example, they tell you to "place a picture control in the form by double-clicking the picture control in the toolbox windows..."

    'Cept I cannot find any picture control...

    It's supposed to be in the Toolbox. But the only thi(s) I found there are "Picture Box" "Image", and "Ole"... none of whic give what (appears to be) a picture control upon double-clicking.

    What the heck am I doing wrong here?

    Re: Picture Controls (VB6)

    I'm guessing that they actually mean an Image control. I think "Picture Box" was a term used for older versions of VB. As far as double-clicking goes, this only serves to keep the toolbox "locked" on to the selected control. You still have to (single) click the userform to place the top left corner of the selected control. HTH
