Hello, I am new to Xojo - did a smattering of RealBasic many years ago. I am using the Windows IDE and am having some trouble with basic coding with the imagewell - I am such a noob lol. I have went through the documentation and have hit some of the forum questions already and I just can’t quite figure it out.
I have made a form with 4 imagewells on it. I preload 3 of them with a low resolution picture (using the inspector, i used the browse button and picked a file off my harddrive - it then stays in the list for future imagewells). Is this what people mean by “adding a picture to the project editor”? Once i add a jpg image to my imagewell control using browse is that picture somehow embedded in my project and i can reference it by name -if so how to i do that - i noticed the imagewell list that gets built drops the file extension and just uses the rest of the filename.
My purpose is when a user clicks on one of the 3 imagewells then the 4th imagewell (physically larger on screen) gets loaded a higher resolution picture from my hard drive. I just cant seem to make the code work. The nicest solution would be to embed all the images i plan to use inside the project (and hence the .exe file i build) so i dont have to do any hard drive work and mess with pathnames etc). I just am not sure how to add them to the project and then how to reference them with the imagewell control…
Thanks for any help!
