Can't load TIF image in VB6

Post by rumblefish » Wed Aug 15, 2012 3:27 am

Hi,
I'm using the following code to load and view a TIF file in a VB6 application:

Code: Select all

Dim hdib As Long

hdib = BIDIB.LoadTiffIntoDIB(txtPath.Text, 1)
BIDisp.hdib = hdib
BIDisp.Refresh
BIDIB is an instance of a BiDib ActiveX component, and BIDISP is an instance of a BiDisp ActiveX component.
When I try to compile, I get an error saying that BIDISP.hdib is not supported in VB6:
Variable uses an Automation type not supported in Visual Basic.
...and the following line gets highlighted:

Code: Select all

BIDisp.hdib = hdib
If I comment out this line the code compiles fine (even though in this case it wouldn't really do anything useful), but when I run the code, I get the error
Object doesn't support this property or method.
... and the following line gets highlighted:

Code: Select all

hdib = BIDIB.LoadTiffIntoDIB(txtPath.Text, 1)
So, suddenly BIDIB doesn't support the method LoadTiffIntoDIB. Can anyone help? What am I doing wrong?

I am using the Document Imaging SDK DEMO for Windows 32-bit Version 12 and getting the same error.
Is there a work around or solution to this problem?
