     this is a way to load a picture without the need for the commondialog.ocx . instead, it uses api in a .bas module. it is somewhat commented in the module but is pretty straight forward. it will only work with .jpg, .gif & .bmp which is a limitation of vb6 to only handle those 3 formats. I did not include a picture as it only uses an imagebox (because it stretches to fit images) & a command button on a form. this is the bare minimum. if you wanted you could add save its there in the module but do not remove as I have already striped down and those functions rely on each other to load the picture to be seen.hope it helps Note: a couple of things i would like to add is that this is great because I use this in several of the progs i have uploaded here so you can see that it can be built on & used in many apps without the annoyance of the cmndlg and that with but a simple change in the filter, you can use it for not only pics but any files ex: .txt, .doc, .pdf or if you want you can use *.* which covers all types, thanks again

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
