APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Visual FoxPro 5.0 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft Visual FoxPro 5.0a



This article was previously published under Q169192

SYMPTOMS

In Visual FoxPro 5.0 or 5.0a, setting the Picture property of a ComboBox object in the Init event of the object does not display pictures or icons within the ComboBox. However, the pictures do appear in ComboBox objects running under Visual FoxPro 3.0 and 3.0b.

RESOLUTION

Several workarounds exist for this behavior. First, you can place the following code in the GotFocus event of the ComboBox object:

   This.Picture(1)=Home()+"samples\graphics\bmps\assorted\balloon.bmp"
   This.Picture(2)=Home()+"samples\graphics\bmps\assorted\cup.bmp"
                

You can also place the following code in the Refresh event of the ComboBox object:

   IF EMPTY(THIS.PICTURE(1))
     THIS.PICTURE(1)=Home()+"samples\graphics\bmps\assorted\balloon.bmp"
     THIS.PICTURE(2)=Home()+"samples\graphics\bmps\assorted\cup.bmp"
   ENDIF
                

Finally, if you need to leave the original code in the Init of the ComboBox, then place this code in the Activate event of the form:

   IF EMPTY(THIS.combo1.PICTURE(1))
      THIS.combo1.Init()
   ENDIF
                

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
