SUMMARY

The documentation for the Microsoft Grid control (the Picture property description for the Grid control in the Help file) states that it is able to load a metafile into the Picture property. This is incorrect for the Microsoft Grid control, but valid for the controls listed under "Applies To" >>reference?<< for the Picture Property. The Microsoft Grid control can only load bitmaps and icons into the Picture property.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

Steps To Reproduce the Problem

  1. Start a new project in Visual Basic. Form1 is created by default.
  2. Place a Microsoft Grid Control on to Form1.
  3. In the Load event for Form1, place the following code:

       Private Sub Form_Load()
           Grid1.Picture = LoadPicture("C:\VB4\metafile\arrows\2DARROW1.WMF")
       End Sub
                            
  4. Run the project by pressing the F5 key. The following error message is received:

    Run-time error '30008' Not a valid Picture type
