    Unanswered: Linking to an image on the WWW

    Hi,

    When I try and link an image (jpg) via a web address, it doesn't work. Should this be possible? if so what do I need to do to make it work?

    Cheers,
    Chris

    You can use the Microsoft Internet Controls Component so as to show a html page with your desired image.

    Is that the Web Browser Control or something different?
    Can use the web one - although I can't seem to resize the component without it going back to original size when I run the form, have you any ideas?

    There's always been a sizing problem with the Web Browser control. it doesn't size properly, and I don't think there's a solution. The same problem happens with some other ActiveX controls; I think it has something to do with the fact that Access forms are not true forms in the VB sense of the word.
