Imaging Seminar Addendum
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   5 months ago

I recently made an update to the template for the Imaging Seminar. I went to edit the VBA code so it would be compatible with 64 bit Access (which is just adding PtrSafe to one of the functions - but more on that later). In so doing, I decided that it would be better to just completely upgrade the code that allows you to browse for a file. Instead of using my old LaunchCD function (why I initially named it that is a long story) I decided to update it to my new PickFile function. 

So from the Main Menu, click on the Employee Form (Image) button - which is the best way to be managing your images, by the way. It's the same concept I still teach in my newer lessons, like the Images TechHelp video.

You'll see the Select Image button says NEW!!! on it. Go to Design View, right-click on that button and you'll see the new PickFile function. Right-click on that and it will take you directly to the module where the new code is. You'll see it's nice and simple - much better than the old one.

It will bring up the Windows File Dialog to whatever the Images Folder is that you've specified. Make sure you set that first in the Settings form.

You can download the new database template on the Student Databases page (yeah, it's an old seminar, so the database files are still there - too much work to upgrade all of those old seminars. I started. It wasn't fun. I'd rather spend my time being productive with NEW stuff). Remember you'll need your course password for the ZIP file, which you can find on your My Courses page. 

OK. That's all for now.

Enjoy!
