ItemPictureIndex[ ]

Applies to

PictureListBox, DropDownPictureListBox, ListView


The ItemPictureIndex property array identifies the pictures associated with items in the control. This array is not updated after initialization.


In a painter

To associate pictures with list items:

  1. Display the Pictures tab page in the control's Properties view and add the pictures to be used in the control to the PictureName list.

    For ListView controls, add pictures to the PictureName lists on the LargePicture, SmallPicture, and State tab pages.

  2. Display the Items tab page in the Properties view and add text to the Item list.

  3. In the ItemPictureIndex list, add the index number for a picture (from the PictureName lists) on the appropriate lines for the items with which you want to associate pictures.

In scripts

You add pictures to controls with the AddPicture function and add items to these controls with the AddItem or InsertItem functions. You use picture indexes in the AddItem and InsertItem functions to associate pictures with the items. See the section called “Using Lists in a Window” in Application Techniques for more information.
