Sounds like a great widget. I had something similar in mind, but never found the time to create it.
I can't try it here at work, but I surely will later at home.
Is it possible to drag a folder full of images to it? Or at least drag a selection of images to it?

How does it work? Does it use the Internet Explorer to display the images like the picture frame does? (I think, this is not a nice solution for displaying images)

I like this a lot, just one problem - i can't get the pictures to loop. Can you help me please?
Comment #3 Friday, September 03, 2004 5:41 PM
I've got it working now, Fantastic!!!!!
Comment #4 Friday, September 03, 2004 8:04 PM
Simple, clean and well done. I cant get the pictures to loop but I like the ability to set the loop speed.

I get an invalid image no matter what I do. I am dragging images straight from the camera with .jpg extensions.
Comment #6 Friday, September 03, 2004 10:06 PM
I had the same problem. The pictures from my camera have the extension '.JPG', but the script is only looking for '.jpg' (or .bmp or .ico). I fixed that for me by changing the 3 lines
Case "bmp", "jpg", "ico"
Case "bmp", "jpg", "ico", "JPG", "BMP", "ICO"
Now it loads my jpegs fine.
There is just one other thing, that I did not know how to fix: My images use a different aspect ratio (mostly 4x3 or 3x4). Is there a way in DX or VBScript to read image dimensions, so that you can change the aspect ratio of the object? Right now, displaying a 3x4 image as 4x3 looks really strange (especially if there are persons on the image).

this is possibly the best widget created yet! this one looks great, works great and is easily configured and displayed. i love it! great work martin!

my only request would be to allow the user to add a folder location and also something to allow the user to remove images that were chosen previously. i guess a restart of the widget would reset it?
Comment #8 Saturday, September 04, 2004 9:33 AM
A restart does not reset it, because the Filenames get stored in the registry when you unload it. But as far as I know, just dragging new pictures onto it will replace the old displayed pictures.

OK - updated to remove any issues with case sensitivity (sorry about that).

Also enforced aspect ratio so all images are scaled accordingly - even if images are different shapes.
Comment #10 Monday, September 06, 2004 12:14 AM
It's not working. I just dragged and dropped them on there and nothing happens.
Comment #11 Monday, September 06, 2004 2:56 AM
Have you definitely loaded the latest version? The widget should be PicViewer12.exe
Comment #12 Monday, September 06, 2004 9:26 AM
same here.. nothing happens when I drag pics on to it.
Comment #13 Monday, September 06, 2004 10:18 AM
Again, do you have existing versions that are not getting overwritten?
If you import the PicViewer12.exe into DX do you get errors when dragging a file onto it?
Comment #14 Monday, September 06, 2004 3:19 PM
Same here with 1.2. Completely deleted all 1.1 version, and registry entries. Drag and drop pictures, but nothing changes.
Comment #15 Monday, September 06, 2004 5:37 PM
I get this when imported to DX : Type mismatch: 'filelist' Line: 138 Code:
(not available)
Comment #16 Monday, September 06, 2004 8:33 PM
I upgraded to the newest version, and deleted the older version. I still can't drag my pictures onto it, and in this newest version, I've lost my ability to resize vertically (horizontally works fine).
Comment #17 Monday, September 06, 2004 9:40 PM
i dont get how you are supposed to get the code out...... it wont let you export it or anything! why cant you just upload them as objects?
Comment #18 Tuesday, September 07, 2004 3:51 AM
Latin, your posts do not need to be as agressive. Let me say this again, and let me say it clearly ...

Comment #19 Tuesday, September 07, 2004 4:04 AM
OK these problems are really beginning to annoy me ... not the comments - the problems.

I have just downloaded this object into a clean XP install with a clean DX install and it works perfectly.

Can people who have been having problems try this ...

1) Unload DesktopX
2) Delete ANY files called PicViewerxxx.exe from your DesktopX/Widgets directory
3) Download this object and place the PicViewer12.exe in your DesktopX/Widgets directory
4) Restart DesktopX and Run the Widget

Does that work? Please also confirm whether you are running DX2.2.
Comment #20 Tuesday, September 07, 2004 7:52 AM
Martin, Did as you asked, and it still not working. I also imported it an ran it and get the same error as soon as I drop a picture on it: Type mismatch: 'filelist' Line: 138
