If you could display the line of code you are using that would be helpful! :)

Also, which directory is your image located?

sorry for the last hurried mail. my problem:

I try to use

Action.LoadAPicture Hotspot(HOTSPOT_NUMBER), "FILENAME"

and I get an error saying the file is not in the areas folder..... but it is. If i use the

Action.LoadAPicture Hotspot(HOTSPOT_NUMBER), "" it will clear a picture no problem.

I have even used the same filename that I have loaded successfully via the usual checkbox... same error , the file is definately there

help please

Are you using a valid file type?
The supported graphic types are: BMP, JPG, GIF (not animated), WMF, EMF, ICO and CUR.

Is the image in the "Hotspot Graphic Files" sub-folder?

If it still doesn't work, you could delete and import that image again.

Hi there...

This has happened before and usually its the spelling of the name[Picture file]..Check really carefully the name and make sure there isn't an extra decimal point or anything..:D

Make sure the picture is in the Hotspots graphics folder as well...and include the extension when u import it in ..:)

Got it

I didn't realise that you needed to include the file extension, added .gif and it worked fine.

Which brings me to the reason I want to use it... better start a fresh post for it

thanks for quick reply
