I created a (personal) DVD database in MS Access. I am looking to leave Access and create a DBMS with Visual Studio 2008 - I am good with programming in VBA, but I am not familiar with the differences in syntax within the .NET enviornment. To make a long story short, after watching a few tutorials, I found out how to build the database et cetera. Now I would like to show the DVD cover (saved as a .jpg image in a folder on my network) when the record for a specific title loads.
I know that in Access, you can link the images to a form under the form's <On Current> event, i.e.,
Me.DVDCover.Picture = "[UNC PATH]" & ".jpg" I prefer linking images rather than embedding in order to prevent bloating. Do anybody have any suggestions on how to link the pictures? I have searched all over DaniWeb as well as many hours of "Googling it" - all to no avail. I would appreciate any feedback that will help me learn and transition from VBA to .NET.
