I've got a database which when you've chosen a picture by clicking on the link field, bowsing then selecting, it displays in a picture window.
The problem I seem to have is it can leave this box on the screen when moving between records too quickly, then without closing down the whole database I can't seem to clear it.
I don't want to embed the pics as it keeps the size of the database down as it is and I can change a picture without touching the DB.
Any suggestions on how I can add some code to the next record button so it waits until the picture loads or to just hide the box?
(It flashes up to show it's loading for each record)
I've grabbed a screen dump so you can see what I mean.
I am sure you could hide the loading box by using API's however, that is probably quite complicated and I don't have code for it. However, I wondered what resolution your images are? If you are scanning them try 72 dpi, you will find the pictures will look the same on screen and the load time will be quicker, so you may avoid the box totally. I only get teh box flashing on screen for high resolution shots.
