Dynamic Images


I am migrating an app from the version 9 RDC to 2008 .Net and I am having trouble with dynamic images. In the RDC, I was able to set up events that ran for each section that allowed me to dynamically assign an image to an image object and resize it at the same time. The images are at the detail level, so each record will have a different image.

With .Net, those events are not available, so I am having to rework how images are displayed.

I have changed the picture objects to use the Graphic Location property, which is assigned to a database field. This database field contains a path to the image.

This works great, except that each image can be of a different size and shape. If I set can-grow on, then the image could be too big to fit into the space allowed. With it turned off, the image will be stretched and skewed if it does match up to how the object was designed.

Any thoughts as to how to solve this problem?

I have debated whether or not to spend the $200 and open up a one-time support call with Crystal, but I don't want to spend the money if the answer is - you can't do that.

Any help would be most appreciative.
