Take a stack canvas put your image item on it and display the stack with the image on it over the button item.

Hi

If you need to put an image, in the property of push button, in fuction, set iconic from 'No' to 'Yes' and give the path name and icon name in icon file name property. eg:- \\10.192.30.20\E\rp_icon. This is for names with .ico extension i think.

Regards
Sinida

Dear Sinida,

My friend Mr. Hany Freedom's question was "How to put image above push button ?"

He didn't ask how to make a button iconic.

I thought he simply want to put an image above the button.

Dear Hany if you want to make an ICONIC BUTTON then you have to set the property of the button to iconic first.

Then in the property sheet enter its correct path. And finally place the icon at that location and run your form.

If you are interested to make a button iconic with an image then it is not possbile is you are using Forms 6i

Azam Khan

Dear Friend,

If you are using Developer 6i then plz correct your info that an image cannot be placed on a button. If you see a button's property sheet you will find that there is a property 'ICONIC' where you tell that button will it show an icon on the button or it's LABEL.

There is no image or image filename property where you can define an image to display on a button.

Yes a button in DEVELOPER 6i can show an icon on it. Pherhaps you are not give the correct path in the Icon Filename property.

Plz check the following 2 properties which must be set inorder to make a button iconic.

Iconic = Yes
Icon Filename = C:\myicon.ico

Regards,
Azam Khan

Search this forum for 'ico gif' and you will find threads concerning the problems associated with getting icons to work in 9i and 10g.
