Hi there,

How can I replace an existing image with a new one on my splash screen. Here's what I mean by this:

I have a form which already has a splash screen logo. This logo will be replaced with a new one. The existing logo is attached as an image in the form of a .tiff file. There are no triggers on the form excepting a "when new form instance" which just says "SET_WINDOW_PROPERTY(FORMS_MDI_WINDOW,TITLE,'ABC').

How can I ensure that the old logo is replaced with a new one.

Here's what I did to replace, i.e my trouble shooting steps:

a)opened the form and deleted the existing splash screen/.tif file
b)went into the layout editor and clicked on "EDIT-> IMPORT" and mapped it to the .tif file that's persent in the local directory. As soon as I click OK, I get the following message :

FORMS-VGS-507- Cannot open file or file not in specified format.

Could any one help me out with this problem or can any one give me a better solution.

BTW- another trouble shooting step was that I discarded the original and the one to be replaced .tif file. After this I imported another .tif file , so as to eliminate/narrow down the issue. The other .tif file when imported, attached itself perfectly fine, except that it was too large. (Any idea how to crop the size). Sorry, I am new to Oracle forms10g and my area of work is pl/sql,sql,crystal reports and VB.


Thanks in advance
