expression A variable that represents an Image object.


This property is read-only in all views.

You can use the ImageHeight property together with the ImageWidth property to determine the size of a picture in an image control. You could then use this information to change the image control's Height and Width properties to match the size of the picture displayed.

Sub GetNewPicture(frm As Form) 
    Dim ctlImage As Control 
    Set ctlImage = frm!Image1 
    ctlImage.Picture = InputBox("Enter path and " _ 
        & "file name for new bitmap") 
    ctlImage.Height = ctlImage.ImageHeight 
    ctlImage.Width = ctlImage.ImageWidth 
End Sub
