Adding Image To GUI

10 posts in this topic

I am currently trying to add an jpg to the main screen on my GUI and have it be available after I compile and move the exe off to another computer. I have tried to add the jpg as a resource,

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add=C:\LetterHead.jpg
, and then called it with
GUICtrlCreatePic("LetterHead.jpg", 0, 0,250, 50)
. This seems to work on the machine, after compiling the exe I can delete the original jpg and it will still show up. However once i transfer the exe to another machine it no longer shows up. I have tried to play around with FileInstall but for whatever reason I cannot get it to work. I have also tried to use the UDF at but it does not want to load resources.au3 when I put #include <resources.au3>. Ideally I would like to do this without adding a UDF but I am all out of ideas and would appreciate any help you guys can offer.

You used it wrongly! Here the example from the resources.au3:

#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add=image3.jpg, rt_rcdata, TEST_JPG_1

#include "resources.au3"

$gui = GUICreate("Data from resources simple example 1",400,150)
$pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic("",0,0,400,150)
_ResourceSetImageToCtrl($pic1, "TEST_JPG_1") ; set JPG image to picture control from resource
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)

While 1
 If GUIGetMsg() = -3 Then Exit
WEnd

Further you can use FileInstall() to embedd and file to your exe but you have to extract the files first before you can use it.

Another possibility is to embedd files as binary strings and use them directly from the memory without saving it to disk first. Examples can be found here: http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=134350&view=findpost&p=936643

Thanks for the input, I finaly got the resources.au3 loading without crashing my script. I have made a couple changes in to the example script to try to get the image loaded but I have had no luck. Any idea on what I have managed to break here?

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <resources.au3>
#AutoIt3Wrapper_Res_File_Add=C:LetterHead.jpg, rt_rcdata, TEST_JPG_1
$gui = GUICreate("Data from resources simple example 1",420, 300)
$pic1 = GUICtrlCreatePic("",0,0,250,50)
_ResourceSetImageToCtrl($pic1, "TEST_JPG_1") ; set JPG image to picture control from resource
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
While 1
If GUIGetMsg() = -3 Then Exit
WEnd

Your modified code works for me.

You have to compile the script and execute the exe afterwards to see the result. Of course the path to the image must be correct.

I have tried compiling it and have triple checked the path and no go yet. I'll play around with it and let you know if I figure out whats going on.

Alright, I have it figured out. As it turns out you have to select Build rather than just right clicking and hit compile. I have one more question if you are feeling extra helpful today =). I have my image but it is massive and changing the settings in the script do not change it's size although it can change its location. Is there something I'm missing or should i just change its size in another program?

Thanks Again

For what it is worth, I would use another program to change the size of the pic. Find your own happy medium between size and quality. I'm sure a quick Google search will turn up a myriad of programs that can do this for you.

E.g. if you want to resize a pic, you can use GDI+ for it. There are plenty of examples how to resize an image and display it into your GUI.
